Alright guys. Good morning. Good morning. It is a Saturday here in Granada. And not a creature is stirring. Not even a mouse. Not even a mouse. It is so quiet, everyone partied hard last night. Yes. And are recovering. We could hear them leaving the bar. Yes we sure could. At like 2 or 3 in the morning. You get so used to it in Spain it almost becomes like your sleeping soundtrack. Like white noise. Yeah. It doesn’t even bother us anymore. Yeah. Rowdy people leaving the bar. Um yeah so the plan for today is to go out for breakfast. We want to show you what a Spanish breakfast looks like. Yep. And yesterday while we were out in town Sam noticed a place (Via Colon). Yeah. So we’re going to try and retrace our steps. There is a few good places so yeah we won’t have any trouble finding one. That is for sure. Okay so Sam found a great little spot for us not too far from the apartment.
This place is called ViaColon and it is a beautiful coffee house (cafe). Like it is classy inside. Woah. And prices are very reasonable I have to say. Yeah. It is competitive with some more rustic looking places. Mmmhmm. And yeah this we are really excited. Yeah. We ordered three different things. Yeah and that is what we’ve done. So they have a menu for breakfast. You have like 5 different options. Yeah. So we’ve ordered 3 of them because we were feeling pretty hungry. Pretty ambitious. We think we can tackle 3 breakfasts between the two of us. Yeah and not only that just going for any kind of walk in the morning makes you hungry.
It is so cold. It is so cold. As you can tell. I have a sweater and winter hat. Bundling up in the mornings. Oh and there are the churros. Gracias. Oh my gosh the churros just arrived. Okay we’re going to start off with something sweet. That is the plan now guys. Going in for the churros. The churros dunk. In a hot chocolate. I just love the thickness of the chocolate. I just can’t get over it. When have you seen hot chocolate so thick. And it is like dunking it in chocolate sauce. Sludge. Chocolate sludge. Look at this. It is just a wonderful richness to it. Mmmmm. It is amazing. It is the kind of thing you could eat anytime of day huh? Mmmhmm. You know what? We ate a lot of churros when we were in Madrid. Yeah. But these are like even more dense. They have less air in them. So yeah you’re just getting more dough. It is more filling. Would you say these are the best churros you’ve tried in Spain so far? Yeah.
I may have to say that. Wow. They are so good. So good that you almost gobbled a whole churro and I haven’t even tried mine. I only get 3. Hahaha. That is the sad part. Well you’ve almost ate half of yours. Mmmm. Good stuff. Finger licking good? Mmmhmm. Finger licking good. Okay Sam is going in for the churros. I better get mine before it is gone. Yeah you better hurry man. So they brought some a little bit of sugar. So apparently you can sprinkle a little bit on so why don’t we try that. Why don’t we try that.
Yeah. I mean it is going to be rich enough but haha. Why not. I can’t believe we’re starting with the sweet stuff as well. We are ruining our chance at dessert. I know. These should be our dessert of the breakfast. We should be saving. We should be having the savory things first. But oh look at that. Just look at it dripping. I know. Wow. Triple dunk. Mmmmm. Wow. What do you think? These are almost like something in between porras and churros. Mmmhmm. That is how I would describe it. They are a little bit. They have a little bit more air and a little bit thicker. No, they have less air. You think they have less air. But they are more spongy than a typical churros. That is how I would describe it. And it really sops up the chocolate.
It really sops up the chocolate. And it is not quite as crispy on the outside as some of the other churros I’ve had that are skinnier. I also find this one less oily like some of the churros can be that is true. Some of the churros can be really oily and greasy. Just let me have another one for scientific purposes only.
Yeah. We were are going to split the last one. Mmmmm. What really makes it here though is the hot chocolate. Yeah. Like this is just really rich. Really sweet and just really I don’t know just. This is just the perfect. They compliment each other so well. Yeah. I just wish we had a few more. I know. We may have to order another plate. We may have to order another plate guys. Yeah but we do have more breakfast items to sample over here. Third bite. Oh yeah. Okay now that we’ve had our sweet stuff let’s move on to the savory. Oh yeah. And first up we have the tortilla which the best way to describe this would be like a potato and egg omelette. Yeah. It is about an inch thick. And yeah. I’d say this is a bit more of a generous portion than what I’m used to. Like they really give us a nice slab here. Yeah. They did not skimp out. Mmmm. Is it good? That is pretty nice yeah. Good way to get your carbs and a bit of protein huh? Mmmmhmm. I really enjoy this.
Yeah? I’ve been known to eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There was one day like 2 and a half years ago in Madrid where you had this all day long. You had you literally did have it for breakfast lunch and dinner. Yeah. Clearly I like my tortilla. That is very much a true story. Yeah. A true story. I almost feel like it needs ketchup though. It is almost like having fries. It needs some ketchup. You need some catsup. Where is the catsup? And they serve this with some slices of tomatoes. That is kind of nice because it just gives it a bit of a refreshing juiciness with the tomato. Mmmhmm. It is now Sam’s turn. It sure is. Time for me to go in for the Spanish Tortilla (tortilla española).
Anyways uh it is very simple ingredients. Just potato and egg. Yeah. And it is thick. It is a lot denser than what it may look like. It might look fluffy on camera but it is thick. Yeah. It is almost like a it has the consistency of like a brick. Hahaha. You can throw it like a brick. I think it is meant to be filling. Yeah. It is meant to be filling. It is hearty. Hearty food. And it is great for the winter right now. It is really good. I would say it is more heavy.
It is more heavily leaning towards um like a potato consistency than egg. Mmhmm. But um yeah it is really nice. It is I need this kind of savory thick filling food in the winter just to keep me warm. Alright, so now we’re going to move on to breakfast item number three. That is right. So the third item on the menu it was listed as bari which I haven’t heard before because it is kind of like a toasted sandwich with Jamón serrano. Oh can you open that one more time. And on the other side. Oh. We’ve got the tomato. I didn’t know it came with tomato. I couldn’t even see that when I was first looking. I know. This is our first time having it with tomato. Yeah. Like usually when we ask for a bocadillo de jamón serrano. Like a sandwich. Yeah. It is just bread and ham. Right. But I like that the tomato gives it a bit of juiciness.
Mmmmhmm. Those are nice thin slices of ham. It is like lightly shaved meat. Wow. It is really good. I think I’m going to like it too. Mmmhmm. This has been a good breakfast spot. Oh yeah. Oh yeah. And the sandwich. Yeah, moving on to the sandwich. So I’m excited to try this. A typical lunch for us like a do it yourself lunch here in Spain has been like baguette and going out and getting like Jamón ibérico or something or like Jamón serrano. Yeah. Just going out and getting ham and making really simple sandwiches. Sometimes throwing in some cheese. So this is just like a really familiar uh comfort food for me here in Spain. Mmmmm. Oh, that is really good. They put in more ham than I thought. It is nice and thick. And that tomato pastes gives it a little bit of juiciness which I like too. Yeah it is just nice to have this variety of 3 different things and we’ve even been thinking there is a piece of carrot cake that looks so good in the case.
Sam has been eyeing the cake. I’ve been eying it. This is basically our brunch so I have a feeling we’re going to order it. Sam’s kryptonite. Carrot cake. Carrot cake guys. It is my achilles heel. I’ve walked in and I had no plans to order any cake but I saw it and like I’ve got to get it. Yeah, this isn’t even like Spanish breakfast food. No. This is definitely not. This is bonus. This is bonus footage right here. But anyways they beautifully plated it. Alright. It looks like there is some kind of like a caramel sauce over here. If I turn it over. Whipped cream. Ice cream. Ice cream. There is even ice cream here. Look at that. A little piece. Alright you dig right in before that ice cream melts. Yep. I’m just going to go for a bite of carrot cake right now. Well a little bit of ice cream too. Actually forget that I’m trying almost everything. Hahaha. Mmmm. What do you think? Oh yeah. I’ve got to try the icing just to confirm.
Just to confirm. Second bite. Oh yeah. Just to be sure. That is the real cream cheese icing. Ooh. I had the last time I had carrot cake was really disappointing. It was like a more of a whipped icing than cream cheese-y. And I was so disappointed. So this is making up for my last bad piece of carrot cake I had not too long ago. Alright enjoy. Yeah. Time to wrap things up. That was a glorious feast of feasts. I didn’t probably didn’t need that cake. It was already big enough breakfast but yeah I’m certainly full now. Anyways on to price point. It came to just over 20 Euros. Under. 19.95. Oh sorry it was under.
Under. You would know better. Even better. Yeah, that is right. You paid for it. So basically that included 3 breakfast mains. Out of those breakfast mains the hot chocolate came with the churros (churros con chocolate). Your tea came with the sandwich right. So then I ordered an additional cappuccino. Yeah. And then an additional slice of cake. So yeah that was a lot of food for 19 Euros. It really was. Great atmosphere in here. The quality of everything was really good. Like the meat was good. The coffee was good. The hot chocolate was good. The cake was good. So yeah there were no. There were no misses here. I’d highly recommend coming here. And yeah what a great way to start the day.
So we’ll see you guys in the next video. Tata for now. .
