Paella is really a typical dish from Valencia but the rice dishes prepared in Barcelona are still very good and probably better than in Rochester (and certainly in Taipei, where I am today). A useful list of restaurants from our Top Questions:

My personal choice would be Kaiku for lunch.

Here you have some places you can do that:

http://www.aulagastronomica.com/

http://www.bcnkitchen.com/en/

http://www.barcelonaculinaria.es/

http://www.tallerdecocinasabores.es/

When booking, insist you want a course on Catalan cuisine, because courses are also taught for other world cuisines. Courses are normally taught in Catalan, Spanish or English depending on the course. Some of them even take you, as part of the course, to the food market to get to know where and how many Catalans purchase their fresh food.

By the way, out of curiosity. a few days ago this website was launched by Valencians: http://en.wikipaella.org/

Hi All,

If I can hijack this for a moment, what about the Catalan dish Fideua? Any recommendations for where to go?

Thanks!

Hi deborahcat

... 7 Portes is one of the best (www.spottedbylocals.com/barcelona/7-portes/) Note in the translated menu they use the term "paella made with noodles' instead. Aside the food, the place has history in town:

Hello! Fideua is the most traditionnal in Catalunya, and instead of Paella you can also try the "Arroz negro" (black rice), you have to eat it with Garlic sauce, I love it!
