There aren’t many foods that fit the bill any time of day, no matter what the need or mood. Enter the long-running “Tortilla Espanola” at Pescadeli, which can be eaten as an appetizer or a snack; for breakfast, lunch or dinner; cold, room temperature or hot; with garlic aioli, ketchup or plain; aside a salad, soup and fruit, or alone. The Bethesda market’s traditional egg and potato omelet is also sold with chorizo, and can be purchased by the pie-shaped round or by the half or quarter. Chock-full of sliced potatoes, it’s comforting, satisfying and easy to eat, any way you slice it.
