Yes, Tedbear, I think that was it. I was suprised that it was really paella.
I almost ordered the seafood with green sauce. Do you know what it is? Is it also a paella? I think I will try it next time. I am enjoying my "doggy bag" today.
Yeah, I don't recall the difference between Paella and Mariscada, but they do seem to be fairly similar.
The green sauce is made from (IIRC), parsley, white wine and garlic, and is really yummy. You could put that stuff on a telephone book and the book would taste good. Seafood in Green Sauce is probably a variety of shellfish poached in a pot of the sauce, but without rice as part of the dish. Of course, rice and/or potatoes will come on the side. One of my favorite appetizers is Clams in Green Sauce. And, there is always enough extra sauce for copious dipping with your bread. I wish that I had some right now!
Another good appetizer is Shrimp in Garlic Sauce. This usually comes in a big enough serving for 2 or 3 people to share it. And, of course, remember to dip your bread in that sauce!
If you are offered a choice between the complimentary soup or the salad in one of these places, the soup is invariably the better choice. Usually, it is something like Caldo Gallego, and I have always enjoyed the soups much more than the iceberg lettuce salads.
