No trip to Valencia is complete without trying the traditional dish: paella. Although paella has become synonymous with Spanish cuisine, the dish originates from Valencia where the rice is grown. Despite its different variations, the traditional paella valenciana is made with chicken, rabbit, green beans and garrófo (butter beans). Borja Azcutia Not a touristy place but classy, authentic and beloved by locals. They serve a perfectly executed paella Valenciana, also with duck. Arrocería Duna If you want to get back to the roots and eat paella in its birthplace, take a trip to Albufera. A short bus ride out of the city, you will find the wild beach of El Saler and this dreamy restaurant. Restaurante Canela For something reasonably priced located in the city centre try this restaurant right next to the historic Torres de Quart.
