The first evening the hosts recommended a traditional tapas-bar-restaurant “Bosque Palermo” where we ordered the famous Paella which originally comes from Valencia. It is a Spanish rice dish which is made in a hot metal pan with lots of olive oil. Therefore, the name is originated by the Latin word patella which means big metal plate or bowl. Traditional and fresh made Paella needs at least 30 minutes to be cooked. In this restaurant they even wrote this fact on the wall. In very touristic areas of the city they will just take the Paella out of the fridge and heat it up. Hence you will always now it is a ready-to-eat meal when they serve it too fast. The ingredients are seafood, meat, green beans, red paprika called “garrofones” , whole and unpeeled cloves of garlic, unpeeled tomatoes and rice. Our hosts said this paella here is the best in town. And I believe him because it was super delicious! I can definitely recommend this place! We actually went there twice during our city trip!
