Valencia – El Saler
A very nice spot, sheltering between sand dunes as the name would suggest. All the tables are outside on a large terrace from where you can see the sea. It was completely full at lunch time but I had reserved a table for one as soon as I got there so had no problems getting in.
Having just arrived in Valencia I was eager to try out some local classics. I started with All i Pebre, (garlic and paprika) which is a fish dish, the classic version being made with eels and in this case potatoes. They’ve never been my favourite fish but I like to challenge myself. Sadly I failed miserably again (C).
The result was very disappointing as you can see in the picture. The seafood was ok (prawns, crayfish, langoustines) but the rice was overcooked and darkened (C). Memo to self, you CANNOT have a good paella for one. See the post Valencia – La Xerea for how it should be.
