As the experts say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and we know a lot about that in Malaga, as we have a wide variety of foods to start the day with strength and lots of energy. In other posts we have told you about the best national and international restaurants, so here we will detail how to order breakfast in Malaga.
In Malaga, unlike other places, we have different varieties of coffees (up to 10 depending on how full you want it) and breads, differing in size, crust and the crumb with which they are made.
If you’re hungry, you also have the option of ordering churros, which are also very typical for breakfast in Malaga. There are 3 kinds of churros: “churros madrileños”, “porras” and “tejeringos”, so depending on where you go you will find one variety or another, although here they are more typical of the last two.
TYPES OF COFFEE
As I mentioned before, there are up to 1o different ones depending on how full you like it and how much milk you want. You won’t find such a wide variety anywhere else, so we’ll explain each of them in detail so you can choose the one you like best:
100% coffee and no milk
90% coffee y 10% milk
STRONG (SEMI LARGO)
80% coffee y 20% milk
EXPRESSO (SOLO CORTO)
60% coffee y 40% milk
50% coffee y 50% milk
40% coffee y 60% milk
30% coffee y 70% milk
20% coffee y 80% milk
10% coffee y 90% milk
0% coffee y 0% milk
In addition to these varieties of coffee, there are also others, although not as common at breakfast time as the previous ones, such as “bombon” coffee (with condensed milk), “crema” (coffee beans concentrated and drunk in a small cup) and “carajillo” (coffee with cognac, rum, aniseed, orujo or whisky).
TYPES OF BREAD
Once we have seen the different types of coffee, we focus on the different types of bread you can choose from to make a good breakfast in Malaga:
Small bread roll, approx. 70 g. and 12-14 cm in size
Small bread roll, approx. 5 cm in size
Small bread roll, approx. 120 g and 25 cm in size.
Bread roll with white crumb and soft crust, floury all over, approx. 90 g and 13-15 cm
Traditional bread with a hard crust and compact crumb. Perfect for slicing.
Sliced bread for making sandwiches.
Once you have decided on the type of bread you want, the only thing left to do is to know what to put on it to make an authentic Malaga breakfast. The most typical is “la catalana” (the Catalonian) (olive oil, tomato and Serrano ham); just with oil and tomato; mixed (ham and cheese); with some sausage such as chorizo, sausage or bacon; pate or vegetable (lettuce, tomato, tuna and mayonnaise) or if you are hungry you can order a roast leg sandwich, which besides being delicious, you won’t go hungry.
Enjoy this great breakfast!!!
