Paella by the sea

leave a comment »

Paella is not quite the Barcelona thing. Our personal food advisor from Aborigens had steered clear of paella suggestions in Barcelona. However, sea food is so brilliant there that not eating sea food paella would have felt like a gap in the trip.  And give a Bengali a break, how can I say no to fish and rice, my dietary staple! We managed to coax a few recommendations out of our sidecar tour guide and picked one among them, Can Majó by the sea.

The mediterranean sea is so perfectly blue that one could really sit and stare at the sea all day long. But decision to sit outside is  a risk where smoking is allowed. Fortunately or not, they didn’t have seating available inside so paella by the sea it was.  No rice crust at the bottom of the paella pan but otherwise supremely delicious. The rice was just cooked right and the sea food flavor was exceptional. And thankfully, no smokers in the vicinity. We went for a bottle of cava this time instead of our usual glass.
