El Petit Mos - Eggs Benedict for Days
There is an abundance of brunch restaurants in Barcelona, but when a place specializes in something it really catches my eye. El Petit Mos in Sant Antoni does just that: they are specialized in Eggs Benedict. And not just your normal kinds of Bennies: they have different ones with flavors from around the world. How cool is that?
Some of the options they have presented in their Eggs Benedict menu have been the UK Roast Beef Benedict with English Muffin, caramelized onion, mushrooms, roast beef and a hollandaise sauce with Stilton cheese, and crunchy bacon. The Peking Eggs Benedict has duck confit, Hoisin hollandaise and foie gras. The Brazilian Vatapá Benedict comes on pao de queijo and has avocado, shrimp vatapá, achiote hollandaise and vegetable chips. Quite inspiring, don’t you think?
We also had the toast with poached egg, mushroom, kale and truffle oil, it usually comes on rye but they also have a gluten-free option. Drinks you ask? They have the full range of wellness lattes from Matcha Colors: pink, blue, yellow and more. If that’s not your thing maybe kombucha is? They also have juices, smoothies and of course coffee to choose from.
For all of us with a sweet tooth: have a look on the counter where they have several large cakes to choose from, like an Oreo cake that looks SO GOOD. If you are a fan of pancakes for brunch they’ve got you covered, and they’re the perfect size, and light and fluffy, so you can have both a savory dish and pancakes to share, or even just for yourself.
The space is warm and welcoming, with a large window that opens to the street for excellent people-watching, and a terrace outside for when it’s nice and warm. If you are around on a Sunday they have live music, a perfect backdrop for your brunch. Oh, and they also do a lunch menu!
