savor: Spain/ Valencia

CASA CARMINA
Embarcadero, 4
El Saler
34/961.83.02.45

The “dry” paellas at Casa Carmina are among the best in the region, yet it’s the soupy rices – of lobster, of monkfish and mushrooms, of chicken and artichokes, and, especially, of fesols i naps (white beans and turnips, flavored by various parts of pork) – that are spoken of by even the most demanding local rice aficionados in hushed tones of sheer reverence.
Mythical: arròs caldoso amb fesols i naps / soupy rice with white beans and turnips.
Start with: all i pebre / eels in a tomato sauce rich with garlic and pepper.
End with: arandí de calabaza / sweet baked pumpkin with toasted almonds.
