Yum Paella

According to New York Magazine, Boqueria is supposed to have the best Paella in the city. Gosh I hope they’re wrong. I mean, the paella was good, but if that was the best paella in the city, then the rest of the city must be lacking in some amazing paella. After the hour long wait for a table (we snagged two seats at the bar and had some tapas), it was kind of a let down. I mean, it was alright, the rice was nice…but…it wasn’t really anything special. Nor was the Serrano ham on toast that everyone was ordering (that’s what I get for following the masses), although the toast rubbed with garlic and fresh tomato was a nice touch. The lamb skewers were a nice tasty bite. However, there is one thing that will keep me coming back to Boqueria again and again (and no NY mag, it’s not the paella)…they have this amazing dish…Xipirones Y Xocao…baby squid a la plancha with hazelnut and a cocoa nib vinaigrette…just…YUM…like…v. v. v. delicious. It was so simple and pure, and the it was just oh so good. I still want to try the suckling pig croquette…sooo…next time! hehe. Overall…the paella was good, but I have to believe there’s better in the city because it would be depressing otherswise, but the baby squid a la plancha is a must have…just…soooo goood…

Yummy Fun Tapas

I recently ate at Boqueria. The food was excellent. They had a Cauliflower special that was delicious. Also enjoyed the lamb confit. The service was very nice and the dishes came at a great pace.
