Mercat de la Planxa, I honestly had not heard of it until we went for a morning brunch one day. Little did I know that this morning brunch would lead to my engagement. Perhaps these feelings have been inspired by such a pleasant first experience. I was determined to give it another chance and not disclose the sentimental value of this restaurant in our hearts. This second visit was made three years later.
Mercat de la Planxa is run by a new chef now, Executive Chef Diego Amat from Spain. I have to say that the experience was just as lovely if not potentially an even more pleasant memory the second time around. Glancing at the menu my eyes were glued to the Mercat Benedict (toasted brioche, chorizo, truffled hollandaise, breakfast potato). The first time I had ever dared tried eggs prepared in the style of eggs benedict was at Mercat de la Planxa during our first visit when they still had fixed prix menus.
