Well, this time I thought I would taste all type of special cuisines in every new country I am visiting. So before leaving Barcelona , we had spanish dinner in Las Ramblas. There are endless restaurants on both sides of Las Ramblas and pretty diner girls inviting to step into one of them.

 Every restaurant has an outside open part specially for smokers . We stepped into one of the restaurant, and sat in the open part, not to smoke, but to have a great view of the busy Las Ramblas, the most famous street of Barcelona. We told our waiter he can serve anything except pork and beef. So we were served tuna -long green bean salad first followed by baby squid. Both of them are types of Tapas .

Then came the main dish, Paella.  Paella  is a Valencian rice dish with ancient roots that originated on the east coast of Spain. The dish is widely regarded as Spain’s national dish, and it has different ingredients  including meat,bean with my particularly favourite sea food Paella . It is cooked in a specialized shallow pan and served hot.

It has become a custom at mass gatherings in the Valencian Community  to prepare enormous paellas. I enjoyed it very much and soon in a plan to prepare at home 🙂
