There were several dishes – and one drink – that I missed very much during the confinement when restaurants and bars were closed. One of the dishes was a mixed paella and the drink was a very cold and well-pulled caña.
Since restrictions were lifted I’ve been having a weekly cane (and enjoying it very much) and I also had a very good vegetable paella that was worth a 10-rating.
But good as the veggie paella was (and it had to be excellent to get a 10-rating) it wasn’t quite what I was hankering for. The temptation and desire to order a mixed paella was very much on my mind.
A mixed paella is a mixed paella is a mixed paella, as Gertrude Stein may have said at some point during her stay in El Terreno with Alice B. Toklas, perhaps on their visits to the Santa Catalina market.
