For those who have not tried Spanish, the Paella is a M-U-S-T without question however the waiter told us that it would take at least 40 minutes so we therefore decided to order a few extra Tapas/entrees. Apologies in advance for the horrific photos as a camera phone in dim lighting do not go well together.
The Zucchini rebozado (aka Crumbed Zucchini) was a tad oily however it was nice and crunchy. There wasn't 5 tonnes of batter on the zucchini meaning you could still taste the flavours of the zucchini.
The Pincho Moruno (aka Marinated Lamber Skewers) were pretty average. Perhaps it may be my lack of knowledge of the spanish culture however I didn't find them that exciting. They tasted like every other lamb skewers you could find at most restaurants. I would give it an extra bonus point mainly because they didn't over it so it was still juicy and tender.
After our tapas/entrees and many minutes of waiting, our paella FINALLY came out! =D Thanks to TEN's Masterchef, I had a brief idea of what to expect. I had taken my friend's advice which was to stick to seafood and seafood only when it comes to ordering your paella; advice taken.
The only bad thing that I can say is that I wished we had ordered the paella for 4 to share instead of 3 - I wanted more!! The bottom was crispy and you could smell the aroma of the grilled seafood as you scoop up the rice. It was definitely worth the wait and!! I would give them an extra brownie point because they gave us enough wedges of lemon. Unlike most restaurants, I always find it a pain how I have to request to be provided with more lemon wedges.
Overall I would definately go back again, especially since the entertainment card made the bill even sweeter AND!! they didn't scratch the back which means that it can be used again. Between 4 people, the bill came to roughly than $20 per person. Plus, if you were to go on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday night they have live spanish dancers ripping up the dance floor.
