Breakfast at The Fruit Shop

CachapasandJuices_TheFruitShop.jpg



This morning, after ten days of isolation with Covid, I decided to go out because I feel good. My husband suggested that we go for breakfast, and I immediately said yes.

We went to a fruit shop near our house where they sell Cachapas.

This fruit shop is more like a small market. Besides fruits and vegetables, they sell a lot of other things. It is a bit more expensive than a supermarket, but the fruits and vegetables are always very fresh.

I sometimes go there to buy things that are not so easy to find in the supermarket. Like ginger to make tea. So this morning I took the chance to buy some. Since with the Covid, these days, I have drunk so much ginger tea that I was almost out of it. A kilo of fresh ginger was at US$ 1.60.

I also had a craving for some nisperos. They were not yet ripe, but I still brought some home. Do you know this fruit?

I also bought some tamarillos, which here we call tomate de árbol. I don't love them because they are a bit bitter. But they are very good for the health because of their antioxidant properties. So I usually buy them from time to time and make smoothies combined with other fruits with them. Do you know the tamarillos?

They also sell food, arepas, cachapas, and pork sandwichs. We ordered cachapas with handmade cheese. I got a mango juice to drink and the husband a tangerine juice.

Cachapas are like pancakes but made with a mixture of fresh corn grounded. The queso de mano is a white artisan cheese. The cachapas were so tasty. Juices were US$ 2.50 each and cachapas US$ 4.50 each.

Another thing I always crave in this fruit shop is the tizana. So we bought one. It cost de equivalent to US$ 2,50. The tizana is a very refreshing Venezuelan drink. It is made with small pieces of fruit. Usually, watermelon, cantaloupe, papaya, and pineapple are the most commonly used. They are mixed with orange and lemon juice and left to stand in the fridge for a few hours to mix the juices of all the fruits. It is served very cold.

This is my participation in the #MarketFriday of the wonderful @dswigle. So to close this post, I couldn't miss a flower for my friend Denise, #alwaysaflower. An Amazon Lily as my Eucharis plant is blooming for the second time this year.

So glad to hear you are feeling good again. Let’s continue 🤗🤞🏻And it must have been so nice that he took you out for breakfast. Yeah! Happy to hear @coquicoin.
The nispero we also have here in Spain. I like them, but not all do.
The tizana drink looks delicious especially with the little fruit bits in it. And your breakfast… nom nom
Thank for showing us around this shop. Sometimes it is worth going to a little bit more expensive store to get better quality and produce they don’t have in the supermarket.
Have a wonderful evening 👋🏻 And a great weekend 🥰🤗💃🏻

Hi Jackie.

It was nice after so many days at home feeling sick.
I didn't know you could get nisperos in Spain. They remind me of my childhood because in my grandparents' house there was a nispero tree, and it was one of my dad's favorite fruits.
And I agree, sometimes especially in some things if we can do it, it's worth paying a little bit more to have something of better quality.

Good night, and have a wonderful weekend. 🤗😄💃

Hi @coquicoin 👋🏻
I so can imagine. Getting out again.
Yes, they are here and just came to ripen this month. You see them in the supermarkets and markets now everywhere. I only know them from Spain, since I live her… 6 years now.

Good night😊 thank you kindly, you too, enjoy the weekend! 🥰💃🏻

6 years is a lot of time. So you must speak Spanish very well.
Buenas noches ;)

Your Amazon lily is gorgeous! How could anybody not love flowers, yes? I had no idea you had Covid! Boo! Poor baby! How are you feeling now? I hope a lot better? Did hubby have it also? I am sure it felt good to get out of the house!

The cafe looks wonderful with the modern good looks it was dressed in. I am a fan of modern or ultra-cozy corners. The fruit you were showing is named the kumquat here in the US. I don't eat them often but on occasion. The tamarillo I am familiar with them, but, the only real-time I can think of that I eat them is a few times in Columbia while eating out. Frankly, I wasn't sure what to do with them except make salsa with them LOL I have a sister in law that is Spanish and she isn't fond of them. I have to trust her on that. :)

I hope you got ginger today. Their fruit really looks good and sometimes we just have to pay more for the best. You are worth it! This was such a lovely day and I am trying to get a bite of that cachapa! That looks amazingly delicious! Cooked to perfection! Venezuelan corn pancakes! What a treat. I want to say that we got them on a roadside along with arepas. It is the only way to eat some days when you are away. Or at home. :)

This was absolutely delightful! It was such fun!!! Thank you for being part of #MarketFriday!

Hi Denise! Thank you. I'm feeling okay now. I just have a little cough left. Hubby luckily doesn't seem to have caught it, we were careful to isolate me at the first signs and so was my son. My husband had post-Covid pericarditis earlier in the year, so the last thing we wanted was for him to catch it.

Thanks for the kumquat, I didn't know how the nispero was called in English. The tamarillo is very bitter, I make smoothies but I always mix it with some sweet fruit, usually mango or banana.

It's good that you can get cachapas there. I hope they are good because a lot depends on the mix of fresh corn with which they are made. Here in the supermarkets, they sell special corn flour for cachapas, but they don't taste the same.

A pleasure to join #MarketFriday
Good evening 😊🤗

That is scary with him getting pericarditis. Covid sure has made its rounds on everyone. I wasn't sure if you meant your son also got it?

I am glad you are all well, once again and I hope you continue to feel better every day. Two of my sisters-in-law are Spanish, one from Mexico and the other from Puerto Rico... they are always lecturing me on tortillas :) I never buy the right kind when it comes to Spanish food, but I love it! Does that count? :) They are cute as they used to teach me how to cook Spanish dishes.

Anyway, I will ask them to send me a picture of the right one that I can buy here. Thank you for letting me know!

Be well and have a great rest of your week!

Hi Denise,

One of the scary things about Covid is that we never know what consequences it can bring, fortunately, we are all fine. Yes, my son had it and I think he gave it to me but his symptoms were very mild and short-lived.

And well, your Mexican sister-in-law is sure to give you some good tips on food. I love Mexican food.

Have a lovely day!

Happy to know you are now out of isolation, sis :) The fruit shop looks nice and it's awesome that they do have a snack corner :) Your photos of the food made me crave cold drinks and yes, that cachapas too, lol!

I haven't seen nisperos or might have but didn't know :) We do have tamarillos here.

Cachapas are tasty. Maybe you can try to make them someday ;) as they don't require any special ingredient, hehe

A tasty lunch 😍.

I love the bright colours of the fruit drinks, they look so refreshing.

I haven't seen nisperos before, but I have heard of tamarillos. Good idea to mix them with other fruits.

I like pancakes and cachapas look yum! The mango and tangerine juices look refreshing and sweet. We do have tamarillos here but I know that I like them. I don't remember it being bitter. However, it's been a long time since I have eaten one. I remember I do eat them more when I was younger. I Googled for nispero and it shows me loquat but it has a different color. More orangey and shiny. We do have that in our grandparents home back in the province but I haven't tasted it yet.

Nisperos here are very sweet. When they are ripe is one of the sweetest fruit I've ever tasted.
When I googled it for a name, loquat came up, but it looks a bit different from what we have here ;)

And now that I think about it, I remember when I was little, once one of my uncles who was always giving us to taste unknown fruits, gave us an orange fruit that he called nispero from Japan. They could be the ones you have there ;)

I will move to Venezuela. 😀 I love everything you showed us. Cachapas seem very cool. I love mango juice, tangerine juice, and the most attractive to me is tizana, it looks so refreshing. Ginger is here for about $ 4, I buy it for salad often. I never made ginger tea. I have never tried tamarillos and nispero, I would love to.

Tizana is very refreshing, amiga. And ginger tea with lemon and honey is good for soothing a sore throat.
When you come to visit, I take you to eat cachapas. 😉🤗😘

Hi sis! How are you now? are you tested positive that's why you went on a quarantine or you just had symptoms? I hope you are feeling much better now.

I'm not sure if we have nisperos and tamarillos here but the tamarillos looks like a regular tomato. and the tizana looks so refreshing :). glad you went out and had your cravings satisfied :)

I didn't take the test, sis. I didn't want to spend on it. I have had symptoms, and many of Rodrigo's friends at school have tested positive. Rodrigo only had minor symptoms for a couple of days. I feel fine now. I still have a cough and a little phlegm. And thanks good, the hubby didn't show any symptoms.

The tamarillos look like tomatoes but they are bitter and pulpier.

Thank you Super Ed 💙 Yep, to celebrate that I'm feeling good now. 😊😄

It's not cheap but nowhere here natural juices and smoothies are cheap. The cachapas cost more than the arepas and empanadas but they are much bigger. I can't eat a whole one. But the husband always has room for a bit more 🤣🤣.
