    Opened by a former school teacher from Spain, the paellas served could not get more authentic than this. Their signature paellas are their valenciana paella, and squid ink paella. Instead of serving it in a pan, they cook it in a large batch, and serve it on a plate for your enjoyment. There is a see through glass to the kitchen, where you can have a view of the chef preparing your delicious meal! They are also reputable for serving one of the best churros in town, so do give that a try as well! If you do plan to make a visit here, remember to make a reservation as this place is often fully booked.
