Who loves breakfast?

Well the handsome hubby and I do.  Gone were those days when we used to love going out on dinner dates. We still do but less than usual because of the caloric implications .

Breakfast however gives us the freedom to indulge! Yes!!!   We love gorging ourselves at this time of  the day because we know we will be able to burn it anyway as the day progresses haha

So when I received an invite to attend the media launch of  Barcino's Desayuno, I was more than excited.


Why does the word sound so romantic in Spanish when all it means is breakfast in English. Wait until you see Barcino bathed in the morning light. The colors simply amazed and made having breakfast a totally wonderful experience.

Freshly-Baked bread

Muesli con Frutas Frescas P360
Assorted Fruit bowl served with house-made cultured milk, chia seeds, granola and dried berries
Andaluz P600
Toasted bread with  Jamon, tomato and olive oil

Champurrado P380
Puffed rice and Venezuelan Chocolate Porridge. Dulce de leche, Bacalao flakes and milk


I have yet to visit Spain, but Barcino  always inspire me to put this beautiful country in my bucket list of travel places to explore soon. Culturally and cuisine-wise, its a dream destination for this foodie mom.

Naturally, while I have yet to make that journey a reality, visits at Barcino would  have to suffice to tide me over .

Desayuno at Barcino is a welcome suprise. Known  for its tapas, sangrias and vino, it is  indeed great news that they now serve breakfast albeit on a limited basis as yet.

Although I was not able to taste all the dishes served  as I had to leave early,  a few that I have tried were really memorable.

I loved the Andalucia aka toasted bread with ham and tomato.  The ham was thinly sliced and exceptionally delicious.

The champurrado intrigued with  its Bacalao flakes in lieu of  our local "tuyo" (dried fish). The stark white of the bacalao flakes contrasted vividly with the blackness of the chocolate porridge. I am missing the crunch and saltiness though that would have complemented the sweetness of the champurrado

I also loved the inclusion of Muesli in the menu. Serving a healthy option certainly would not hurt.

The cava (P300)  is a decadent way to start your desayuno which I would not mind adapting if  this indeed is the way they do it over there in Spain hehe

Looking to indulge yourself  with an amazing Spanish breakfast?

Desayuno by Barcino is a must try. They are only open though from Friday to Sundays. I highly suggest you make a reservation first before dropping by just to make sure you do not wait too long for a table for your party
