Alhambra Churreria Chocolateria at Plaza Romanilla.
in Granada is not much difference in Madrid or Cordoba where I had them before.
It is either churros or porras, barra con aceite de oliva, barra con aceite de
oliva y tomate puro and the infamous morning drink – café con leche (café latte
but in a small glass or a cup, normally we have them in a glass) or the
occasional natural orange juice.
Spanish lesson 101…by now you should know that my Spanish is pretty bad, but you have
to understand at least what the heck I said above right? ^^
– a type of fried finger food in Madrid and many other places in Spain, but
some places called them as ‘Porras’. Wikipedia explains more here.
– a type of bread in Spain, kinda like baguette but bigger in size
Aceite de oliva – aceite = oil, oliva =
olive; olive oil
Tomate puro – pure tomato
Leche - milk
you are those who love learning language, you can try Spanishpod101 and like
myself, learn a bit a day. ^^
to the main topic shall we?
We had all our breakfasts at about 10 or 11 am in
the morning. Yeah..hahaha. Well it's too early to eat at 9.00! All of them (our
breakfasts) was at Alhambra Churreria Chocolateria; the first and the third at
the same café in Plaza Romanilla but the second was at another franchise which
is just below Los Tilos Hotel.
you love crowds, go for the one under Los Tilos Hotel which is in the center of
Plaza Bib Rambla. There are like three different terrazzos from three different
café’s and you can choose any of them.
Our Day 1 at Alhambra Churreria Chocolateria, Plaza Romanilla.
for 2 (normal portion)
Cafe' con leche
cup of chocolate for the churros
euro (IVA included)
is what you called value added tax in Spain. More readings here.
ate inside the cafe'.
(according to my husband’s knowledge) some cafe' will charge extra maybe 40 or
50 cents more
have your meal at the terrazzo (outside the cafe'). Why? Because this is
Spanish culture. ^^
Our Day 3 at Alhambra Churreria Chocolateria, Plaza Romanilla.
Check out what John Lennon said about life - la vida. So true!
I am too lazy to write..hahha.
Write and Google Translate yourself!
Churros for 1 (normal portion**)
Barra con aceite de oliva y tomate puro
cups of cafe con leche
time we ate at the terrazzo so our bill was 6.40 euro (IVA included)
can actually ask for half portion, cheaper. It is stated in the menu anyway. So
don't be afraid to order half if you think the normal portion is too much for
you. Normal portion has maybe 6-7 sticks of churros but half portion has maybe
three. I saw a grandma ordered half. That's why I know..hehe.
con aceite de oliva y tomate puro
cups of cafe con leche
glasses of zumo de naranja natural (natural orange juice)
how to pronounce, Spanish alphabet? Zumo – sumo and naranja….hmm…go to
Spanishpod101 and learn more..hehe.
ate inside the cafe' and our bill was 10.00 euro (IVA included) because the
natural orange juice cost 2.50 euro each but it was super delicious! Nothing
like any of the orange juices that I had tried before. I seriously recommend
this orange juice. ^^
Churreria Chocolateria’s employees are very pleasant and friendly. They keep
explaining to me that in Granada porras is called churros too. All is the same.
I just smiled to them when my husband told them that I don't speak Spanish.
their reactions were...oopppsss!! My husband told me that I looked like
Moroccan so maybe they thought I speak Spanish. No way!! ^^
