Paella, paella, paella!
Arguably Spanish cuisine’s most well-known dish, paella is a staple at any Spanish restaurant in Hong Kong and for good reason at that. Originating in Valencia, paella consists of charred rice, vegetables, and meat or seafood seasoned with saffron and rosemary cooked to perfection on an open fire which creates an aromatic smoke that infuses the paella. One of Hong Kong’s best Spanish restaurants for paella is without a doubt, La Paloma. With a live paella station, you can watch the chefs in action as they whip up delicious creations, like their famous paella de Bogavante of lobster and saffron paella which simply must be tried. Or, if you find yourself in Central, Fofo by el Willy boasts an exceptional mixed seafood dish with Boston lobster, while over in Tai Hang, Paella Paella’s Valencian paella for two is packed with chicken, beans and Ibérico pork – so good you’ll be floating out the door.
