Well known to tourists and in all the guides (rightly) is Chez Theresa and her small, busy, fun restaurant where you can find authentic “socca” (a thin pancake made from chickpea flour and olive oil, baked and crisped in the oven and seasoned with black pepper, a little like a crepe, a French version of Farinata from Genova). Also, you’ll find here further local specialities: pissaladière (pizza-like onion tart), petits farcis (delicious stuffed Provençale vegetables), salade Niçoise, pan bagnat (fresh baps or bread filled with salade Niçoise), tourte aux blettes (tart of Swiss chard, raisins and pine nuts) and beignets de fleurs de courgettes (deep fried fritters with vegetables like courgettes flowers). That’s why Forbes.com stated Nice as an “Haven for Gourmets”. For those on the run, the redoubtable Theresa also sells socca from her stall on the Cours Saleya market (where all the above mentioned specialities are sold, too!).
