Greetings from Barcelona, Spain! Day Two ~ Breakfast in Barcelona at O'RINCON DA TERRA. This is part of foodie blog updates on all of the places  I feast, ate and dine during my 7-days maiden tour to Barcelona in Spain. Read on for more ...

Carrer dels Comtes de Bell-lloc, 51
08014 Barcelona
Tel +34 934 90 00 55

My family and I had our breakfast here after staying for a night at nearby Airbnb and this restaurant is a walking distance from where we stay and very close to the Sants Estació,  Barcelona Sants Railway Station.

With a fully-packed tour schedule for the rest of the day, we decided to have a big and hearty breakfast at the local restaurant instead of a cafe to fill our hungry tummies. You see, cafes in Barcelona usually serves diners a simple croissant and coffee for breakfast menu.

As we have planned to join Strawberry Tours for the Tapas & Historical Centre Tour in town later that day, my daughter, Carmen suggested we had brunch, skipping lunch to save our stomach for tapas treats later in the evening!  

Ok coming back to O'RINCON DA TERRA, Carmen found this restaurant thru great reviews given on Tripadvisor and it was indeed a great place to dine for delicious and wholesome food, cooked fresh right from the kitchen.

The menu offers a good assortment of traditional Galician cuisine for tapas. O'RINCON DA TERRA has a no-frills decor with an elongated bar counter, featuring a long line of their food items for tapas.  

There's a patio interior dining area with tables outside on the left side of the restaurant, seatings are limited for small group dining up only 4 to 5 tables. We enjoyed the fresh air and sunshine dining at the beautiful interior terrace, sipping our 'cafe' while digging into our delicious breakfast!
Breakfast Menu ~ Combined Plates

Coffee & Croissant
 € 2.10

There was 5 of us and each picked our personal favourites from their breakfast menu. Prices were really affordable starting from  € 5.50 (Egg, salad & bacon) to  € 12.50 (Cuttlefish & Potatoes). 

Baguettes On The House With Order Of The Breakfast Sets 

If you are looking for a simple and pocket-friendly meal, go for the € 5.50 (Egg, Salad & Bacon) or  € 5.55 (Sausage, Fried Potatoes & Salad) sets,  otherwise, if you're an adventurous eater, then I would suggest you try out their seafood sets of  Escalopa (Scallops) with Fried Potatoes & Salad € 7.95, Squids & Fried Potatoes € 6.95 or Cuttlefish with Fried Potatoes € 12.50.  
Breakfast Choices of The Day
1/4 Roasted Chicken With Fried Potatoes & Salad 
 € 6.50 

Roasted Chicken With Fried Potatoes & Salad or Pollo Set (Chicken in Spanish) was simply amazing. The portion was generous with great value-for-money at only  € 6.50. This Pollo or Spanish chicken dish features a full-of-flavour, well-marinated and fork-tender meat that just fell of the bone.  

Everyone's Favourite On The Table

I think they slow-cook or stewed the chicken to infuse the herbs and spices before grilling it over the oven prior to serving. This is a MUST-TRY if you are a chicken lover - it's juicy and not dry, with juice coming out once we slice off the thick and tender meat off the bone. Everyone was digging into my hubby's choice of breakfast and you bet this is definitely everyone favourites plus the top choice of the day!

Sausage, Fried Potatoes & Salad
 € 5.55 

 Sausage, Fried Potatoes & Salad was my son's choice pick for his breakfast. He has been craving for some homemade sausages since flying in from London. 

Then again, the portion size was huge - for this housemade pork sausage of more than 1/2 foot long. The meat was firm, meaty and flavoursome and goes well with the chunky pieces of fried potatoes and salad on the side. 

 Pork Loin With Fried Egg & Fried Potatoes
 € 7.80 

My meat-eater daughter, Carmen opt for the Pork Loin With Fried Egg & Fried Potatoes, saying that we must at least try the Spanish pork while in Spain as they are famous for their black Iberico pig. 

Pork Loin With Fried Egg & Fried Potatoes consists of two thick and chunky piece of pork loin, grilled with charred bits, mildly seasoned with salt and black pepper just to maintain the natural flavours of the juicy meat. Served with fried potatoes and egg with a runny yolk on the side. 

Their salad consists of three ingredients of fresh tomatoes, onions and lettuce, drizzled with olive oil and lemon juice. Tangy and refreshingly delicious and goes well with all the combined plates served that morning.

Overall, O'RINCON DA TERRA is great place for someone looking for cheap and pocket-friendly dining with wholesome and tasty Galician meals which I heard that is some of the best in Spain. Oh yes, this place is easy to find and accessible as it's just only a five-minute walk from the metro.
