Despite the fun, food and freckles (well, not mine, but other people’s!), the cruise had to come to an end at some point. Our last stop was Barcelona, where we had to fly out of. My parents were keen to get an early flight (they were headed elsewhere in Spain anyway – nice for some!), but I was determined to have at least one meal in Barcelona.
After we arrived in the city, we went straight to the airport to drop off our suitcases, then back out into town. Stop one was obviously the markets to drool over (and eat) some amazing Spanish food, and then it was onto our second course – breakfast. I’m not that familia with Barcelona morning hot spots, but I’d been told that Milk was somewhere we had to go to. Done.
We had to wait about 10-15 minutes, which wasn’t too bad. At least we knew it must be good.
Finally, a seat. I could nearly taste the food. You’d think I wouldn’t be so hungry since we had a couple of snacks at the market. This cruise has stretched my stomach like no other – since when is two breakfasts a day the norm?
I wasn’t ready for a Bloody Mary, but oh, did I know what I wanted!
The others went for some coffees…
This. This is what I wanted.
Their Super Tall Hot Chocolate made with Hershey’s chocolate, topped with whipped cream and mini marshmallows.
I don’t usually like Hershey’s, but this was SO GOOD. It set me up well for the food. First up, one of the girls ordered the Huevos Rancheros – Mexican beans with a hint of cipotle pepper topped with soft fried eggs, pico de gallo, sour cream, rudolpho’s Mum’s hot sauce and corn tortilla chips.
Lucy opted for the French Toast. I can’t find it on the menu – maybe it was a special? Either way, delicious.
The rest of us set our eyes on the Chorizo Hash – Sautéed spinach, chorizo and potatoes topped with manchego cheese, a poached egg and herb oil.
Well, they did. I asked for the chorizo hash… without the chorizo. Yep, I’m that girl.
It was obvious that I should get some extras then. Avocado and mushrooms!
Oh, and lots of sauces..
Yes, yes, yes. Pre-plane fuel!
Mine was good, quite heavy with a lot of potatoes. Maybe too many potatoes – If they were cut up smaller it might have been alright!
Anyway, it’s a great spot for your recovery brunch! I’d love to spend more time in Barcelona and find more breakfast gems, but back to London we go!
