What is that everyone in associates with Spain besides Sunshine, Salsa and Bulls? Right, it’s the great Mediterranean food! In Spain people are told to become older and live healthier than people in more northern countries and this may very well be linked to their special diet. Healthy meat and fish, natural bread fresh vegetables and everything prepared with domestic olive oil.
The greatest of all Spanish Dishes has to be the great “Paella” though. Paella is a dish that originated in the state of Valencia. It is a dish that consists of yellow rice, meat/fish, saffron and seasoning. It is usually served in a huge pan and shared by a group of at least 4 people.
While Paella is a dish from Valencia and can be enjoyed all over Spain, one thing is sure: Barcelona is the place to be if you want to try the famous “Paella Marisco”. This is a special variation which instead of chicken and lamb is prepared with Prawns, a variety of fish and other delicacies that the sea has to offer. Naturally with its rich sea and beach regions Barcelona has the freshest and tastiest ingredients right available.

The best Paella de Marisco you can find in the idyllic neighborhood of Barceloneta. This is actually a traditional fisherman’s area where you still can see some docks and traditional fisher boats. This is the perfect place to grab one of the many restaurants that specialized on seafood and Paella which literally get their ingredients from the sea fresh within minutes. A candlelight dinner there after sunset and with sea view is a unique experience that you will cherish for a longtime to come
