breakfast at mercat de santa caterina

excellent breadcortadothe griled green pepperspotato omelettetripes!it will cost me an arm and a leg for a (western) breakfast spread like this in Asia. Well, I suppose if I want some chinese congee with 20 different condiments in Europe, that would be a lot dearer than what I would pay for back home. The coffee and bread here are delicious and the tripe dish (with chickpeas) was tummy-warmingly good. And you know, it doesn’t hurt to have a glass or two of Cava to chase away the morning blues too – that was what some of the patrons, clad in their office-wear, did while devouring some moreish spanish tortilla (potatoes omelette).
