South America | Brazil | Northeast Brazil | Salvador da Bahia – The fantastic breakfast
Well just so you know, the pousada alcino in Lencois in a beatiful mountain range called chapada diamontina in the northeast of brazil has about the best breakfast spread ever. As many of you may know, breakfast is quite a serious affair in Brazil in the hotels, espically those who are competing for the BBB title (best brazil breakfast).
Typical Alcino breakfast, all items homemade
divine coffee (which lyla loves and she is now suffering from withdrawal)
warm milk (which I love)
hot pepper jam
passion fruit jam
scrambled eggs with cheese
coconut crepes with melted cheese
sweet potato cake
very flavorful salami
fried coconut donuts
fresh hot homemade crackers with truffle
butter with basil
and much much more!!!
To tell you the truth, what wedescribed was probably half of what we have tasted at Alcino´s. Beside being a great breakfast pousada, the place was filled with ceramic artwork done by alcino himself. The pousada has three turtles and three or four frogs (ranges from tiny to humongous) in residence, plus a bitchy cat that likes to scratch her head on our feet.
Well, we thought alcino deserves a page by himself. So we hope you all prepare for your next trip for brazil now…
