The first Barcelona recommendation is finally here! I wanted to make sure I had a powerful start, beginning with one of my top places.
I would describe myself a pretty indecisive person when it comes to choosing what I want to eat when I go out, since there are too many things that sound amazing, and I’m never sure if I fancy more sweet or savoury. That’s why a proper brunch is always the best choice.
I think that going brunch is such a great thing to do, especially on a chilled Sunday, with some friends or a partner. You do a bit of walking around and then find a cite café to sit at and order both sweet and savoury because it’s totally accepted to mix both.
This time I went to a place I’ve been several times before (for both coffee dates and brunch), and that hasn’t deceived me so far: Alsur Café. I went to the Alsur Café & Backdoor Bar, but they have a few more around the city, so they’re pretty easy to find.
It’s not a really big place, but enough to cover the high demand on the peak hour, since it usually gets pretty busy (I recommend you to book a table in advance if you can just in case). It feels like a really cosy place because of the wooden decoration and there are many cool seats and pillows so it’s always a really comfy place to be at.
As I said, I can never decide whether I want sweet or savoury, so I got both. I went with my partner, so we shared a first savoury one, and then our own sweet dish, and a drink or each one.
What we ordered: Pulled-Pork Bravas, Carrot-Cake Pancakes, Choco-Banana Kaiser Pancakes, Oreo Milkshake and Apple, Carrot & Ginger juice.
I was so amazed by the bravas, since I was expecting something yummy but it was incredibly delicious. I would definitely recommend this to everyone since I think it was my favourite dish of them all. Moving to the sweet ones, I think that maybe the portions were too big if you’re going to have the whole thing yourself. Both pancakes were really good, soft and freshly made. The carrot-cake ones really tasted like so, and the kaiser ones had lots of caramel, syrup and chocolate, that were counteracted with the fresh fruits it has on top. I would recommend these to people that really like sweet things, but I warn you that it’s a huge portion.
Last but not least, drinks. Both were really good, but I feel like if you’re having such heavy dishes, the most sensitive thing is to get a more light and fresh drink, like the juice I got for myself.
I think that the prices are really good (about 9€ maximum for a dish and 5€ for a drink), but there’s actually a brunch deal, which it’s any dish from the menu, and for 2€ more you can add a drink, dessert and coffee. I think that’s a really good price since the food is really good, the portions are big, and we all know that brunch places can be pretty expensive sometimes.
I would definitely go again, since I’ve already been there several times before and it feels like such a nice place to have a little something and enjoy a nice time with whoever you want to.
Thank you so much to Alsur Café for inviting and receiving us for brunch.
