Food Treats: Delicious Paella Negra

Food Treats: Delicious Paella Negra

Paella Negra

Whenever I go to Barcelona  one of my favorite cities in Europe – a few things make me feel better than eating a delicious Paella Negra on the terrace of one of the restaurants along the seaside of La Barceloneta.

One of my favorite food treats in Barcelona? A Paella Negra in one of the restaurants along the beach

A variation of the traditional Paella Valenciana, one of the most famous Spanish dishes, the Paella Negra – also called arròs negre – is made with cuttlefish or squid, whose ink gives the rice the typical black color as well as a strong seafood flavour.

For those willing to try and cook Paella Negra, and understand a little bit of Spanish, I found a video recipe that seems well done, although I haven’t tried yet to follow it.

    We have great Paellas here in the Philippines, too! There is a Saturday Market here named Salcedo Market that caters savory paella negra. Everybody loves it! For more info, here’s the link: http://whatmichaelikes.blogspot.com/2013/02/pinoy-black-paella-arroz-negra.html

    Yum! Although I couldn’t bring myself to watch the video – I don’t want to know how to make it, I just want to know how long it will take before the waiter brings it to me!! 🙂

      LOL! I never cooked paella. Just prefer eating a good one prepared by a real expert. I reckon we’ll have to meet in Barcelona some time to have a paella negra together, Michael! 🙂
