Fideua - Valencian Seafood Noodle Paella
Want comfort food? Here it is, big time. Especially, eaten on a beach in Valencia. Here's a paella tip from a Valencian native - make sure that the paella is not precooked and microwaved for you... they should make it fresh for you! It is made for a minimum of 2 people and should be cooked on a vine wood brazier. Details here...
Here's an excellent recipe...
The one we had on the beach was of the microwaved variety and was still good. Please go to Fideua de Gandia if you want the real stuff in Valencia.
For amazing rice paella in Barcelona go to Porto del Refugio. Address is Carrer del Judici, 4, 08003 Barcelona, Spain. It's in Barcelonetta
3/5 Valencia... ho hum, this day I didn't go to the right places to eat, but the beach was marvelous, 26 C in November!
