after learning of a Paella bar(! i know, it exists!!) called Socarrat, I had to go.
My friend also immediately responded positively to my request to try their squid paella, so it was game on! we reserved a table for 2 hours later and we were there!
very simple squid ink paella, with sea food on top of a gorgeous black rice ocean.
also highly recommended by my friend was the fried artichoke, and boy was she right! spot, on!! :D
will be back for more very soon!
