LA Paella


  • 4 (669 reviews)

Specialties: We specialize in Spanish food (from Spain). The "paella" is our signature dish and we do it from scratch. Therefore, it takes about half an hour, and although the prices for the paellas are for one order, it has to be a minimum of two orders of each. Why two orders? Like in Spain or almost anywhere it's done from from scratch and you would need a minimum of ingredients and amounts to get the best flavor. While the paella takes place, it's normal that our guests order some of the "tapas" (small plates) as appetizers. We have mostly some traditional "tapas" and only a few are spicy; contrary to what some unfamiliar people would expect from a Spanish place(not Spain). Spain is not known for its complex cuisine nor spicy foods, but rather for its good quality of natural ingredients. The Mediterranean cuisine. Of course, these days, we're also pioneers in fusion and avantgarde cuisine. Established in 1995. Pasqual the former owner has retired after 23 years. We are so fortunate to be able to take over this long-standing Spanish Restaurant. I have been in the Restaurant business in the Canary Islands (Spain) for the last 20+ years when my friends Dan and Damaris invited me to Los Angeles to open a Spanish restaurant with them. We look forward to continue to serve you the best Spanish Food: Authentic tapas and Paellas in Los Angeles. Tudor B.
