Delicias de España in Miami, Florida

You Know What’s Really Good? La Tortilla Española from Delicias de España.

My Mom makes great breakfast omelets, but it wasn’t until I visited my Dad’s mother (La Gallega) in Glendale, California, that I tried a Spanish Omelette (Tortilla Española) for the first time. Until then, I believed an omelet was an omelet.

She was born & raised in Spain and was a Flamenco dancer by trade (for you nosy types). I remember sitting mesmerized, watching her cut all the potatoes & onions and making one from scratch.

Her garlic mayo, another creation my Dad loved and one that initially creeped me out due to its greenish hue, was excellent.

La Gallega passed away almost 20 years ago. So, whenever I’m in the mood for a Tortilla Española, my first thought is to share it with my father; it is even better if we go together to buy it.

About the Tortilla Española

Please let me tell you about this delicacy found all over Spain. Of course, like most things, there are variations, but potatoes only are the classic version.

The potatoes are cooked in olive oil to a soft consistency in a semi-deep pan. After draining excess fat, eggs are mixed in with your potatoes. Go ahead and add onions, but that’s up to you.

The Spanish Omelette looks like an amped-up version of what you believe an omelet to be. You can eat it cold or warm; it’s up to you.

I prefer mine to have patatas and cebollas (potatoes & onions), but my Pop’s favorite is the chorizo one. However, we agree that eating it cold is best on crusty bread with some great mayo.

Sunday is his only day off, so we’ll likely be on a Tortilla Española adventure. Our favorite spot is the Delicias de España in Kendall, across the street from Dadeland Mall.

It’s a full-fledged restaurant with a small market of products imported from Spain. Their Tortilla Española reminds me of the one La Gallega made us all those years ago.

We like to stand in front of the filled glass display cabinet and make an on-the-spot decision about which lucky fella is coming home with us. This time, my Dad’s favey won out.

Side Note.: My Dad learned how to make a mean Tortilla Española from La Gallega. If I beg him enough, he’ll make it for me.
