Paella is perhaps the best known example of cross cultural fusion cuisine in the world. Although most “traditional” recipes only go back to the 19th century, paella’s true roots are far more ancient. A fusion of Roman Steel, Moorish Technique and ingredients from both cultures to create a dish which is the perfect combination of function, form and, most importantly, great taste!
Paul’s Paellas, also known as San Diego Rice, takes this tradition to its next logical (and long overdue) step. These Paellas combine traditional techniques and recipes with ingredients made possible by global logistics and unprecedented access to international markets. Each paella is an original artistic creation inspired by the Valencian genius of the very FIRST PAELLAS!
Paul has been making Paella for a quarter century and his motto remains:
EVERY PAELLA BETTER THAN THE LAST
Can you remember what was served at a wedding you attended a decade ago? You will with one of these.
The best way to feed a large group of people spectacularly. Seriously!
APPETIZERS? Not from Paul’s Paellas. Paella is ment to stand alone with all effort going towards making the absolutely best tasting and looking paella possible. Further, our portions are LARGE and there will always be leftovers making appetizers unnecessary. If you feel the need, however, we recommend a light salad or maybe some crusty bread. Not too much though!
THE LOGO? The Maltese Cross (aka Cross of Knights Hospitaller or Saint John). Paul’s Paellas are as much a product of his Maltese Heritage as they are Iberian fusion. They are optional but really add an unique touch.
