Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. 😉 Actually this was more like “brunch beer” as it was after 12.00. I haven’t yet graduated to having brandy at 9 am, think you have to be at least 85 to do that.
So back when I met Alexis last February she told me about this new breakfast (and merienda) place next door to one of her gorgeous AirBnB apartments… and that they made their own poppyseed bagels (!!!). Well, I haven’t had bagels since I lived in Toronto, and it is the ONE THING I tell people I miss from Canada (well, when they ask me).
Anyhow, I did stop by Otto one afternoon in February just to check it out, but it wasn’t until today that I finally got over there for brekkie. And it was fabulous. Unfortunately – or very wisely – Otto owners Isidro & Serena don’t sell the bagels to takeaway. I can’t say they are the same as my favourite wood-oven baked bagels in TO, but it tasted damn fine this morning.
They also do traditional tostadas here, with a lovely selection of extra virgin olive oils, that were recommended by Alexis. You can also get pancakes, yoghurt with granola, and several other tasty breakfast options. I will be back…
I’ve popped into the wonderfully cluttered La Recova many times but this was the first time I stopped in to eat. According to Victor @welovemalaga they serve an amazing breakfast so we chose to go there for our regular Tuesday morning We Love Tapas @welovetapastour meeting. We usually do this by Skype, so it was great to actually meet up in person and, well, have this amazing breakfast.
For a whopping 2.20€ you get coffee or tea, a thick slice of toasted country bread, and a whole whack of toppings: olive oil, butter, fresh tomatoes, peach jam, banana spread, sobrasada, two zurrapas (chicharrones and pork loin & pimentón) and paté. All served with a smile. We’re doing more breakfast research this week, but this one is going to be hard to beat.
