Spotted - Paellas in Madrid City, Spain




I spotted this Paella billboard in one of the restaurants in Madrid, Spain.

Being a colony of Spain for more than 300 years, Filipinos have been exposed to Spanish cuisine since time immemorial but I doubt whether typical Filipinos are aware that there are many kinds of Paellas. As for me, I know only Chicken and Seafoods Paella.

Surprisingly, many restaurants we have visited in Madrid offer Paellas only during weekends; we didn't have any slightest idea why is that so. Fortunately, on our way back to our hotel at Plaza Sta. Ana we found one restaurant that offers Paella every day.

If you can easily find Paellas in Madrid, it is the opposite in Barcelona or perhaps we didn't know where to search. Our local hotel staff told us that they eat Paella for lunch but seldom during dinner since it is too heavy for their tummy.

Long story short we're able to have a taste of authentic Spanish Paella. Not once but thrice, lol.
