Paella Valencia - rice dish with pork, chicken, seafood and vegetables.Personal Review
After heating mass, my father in law wanted to eat some Paella. We went to one restaurant in Home Depot but it was full. Hubby suggested Casa Armas since he heard they serve great Paella. Casa Armas is located in the Podium Mall and it is conveniently right near the driveway of the mall.
We were greeted by the friendly security and mostly male staff. We were seated at the comfortable couch and given menus. The first thing my father in law ordered was the Paella Valencia
rich Paella with stewed chicken, seafood, vegetables and pork. We also got a platter for an appetizer and some fruit juices for beverages.
We were served a basket of warm bread and butter slices. My daughter mistook the butter for cheese and used her hands to get some
The bread was good, soft on the inside with crusty sides. Staff gave us two baskets
The platter arrived and the tray was loaded with salami, parma ham, cheese, sardines, bacon and asparagus, yum! What a way to start a meal. The sardines were a bit spicy but delicious. The salami was also soicy but not so much. The bacon was my favorite, it was thinly sliced but full of flavors, a bit salty and chewy. My daughter loved it too! The asparagus was boiled so it was soft and easy to slice. Also delicious! Too bad there weren't too much of it.
The Paella came and the serving was huge! There were six of us, five adults and one child yet we still had t struggle to finish it all
The rich tomato based rice was heavy on the stomach. It had loads of seafood, pork and chicken too. The egg slices we gave to my daughter and some rice before we squeezed the lemon lime on the rice. I got several pieces of mussels, clams and a shrimp on my portion. It's funny because my father in law said that the best part of the paella was the crusty and burned rice at the bottom of the metal pan. We scraped some off and tasted it, it was good! Crunchy rice crispies! I mixed it with my cooked rice for an added crunchy experience.
Delicious and heavy lunch, care of Casa Armas!Personal Rating
