One of the most classic meals for the Spanish morning is toast with pureed tomatoes, a small touch of olive oil and a pinch of salt. It may sound plain, but it is nothing of the sort. The taste of a fresh tomato that has been crushed and served on warm, crispy bread creates a delectable mixture of sensations inside your mouth, that really lets you know that you are now in Spain.
It’s important to remember to have a cup of coffee or a glass of orange juice with this dish, to make the experience complete and perfect.
Fartons with horchata
This is a large and soft piece of sugar-glazed bread, very typical in the Valencia area. You can’t talk about “fartons” without the “horchata” : horchata is a drink very similar to milk but it has a distinctive nutty taste, since it’s made from “chufa”, an edible tuba with similarities to both celery and nutmeg.
The ultimate classic and most delicious of all, the Spanish omelette. Ordering a “pincho” of tortilla in any bar feels like you’re asking for a slice of pizza. It’s made with eggs and fresh potato, ready to be served with a glass of orange juice or typical “cortado” and a piece of bread.
