Can anyone recommend a place that makes good paella??

When I went to Spain, I became very addicted to the paella there! I have frequented a few Spanish restaurants in Toronto only be disappointed. I don't expect the paella here to be as good ofcourse but there has got to be one restaurant that makes something even remotely close to as good. Anyone have any suggestions??

  1. If you don't mind trying a Portuguese version, then I would suggest trying Adega on Elm, or Chiado on College. Not sure if they always have it on the menu -- give them a call to be sure!

      1. Have had both Segovia's spanish paella & Alegre Bar & Grill's Portuguese paella. Both are normally very good, but now & then the cook seems to lose interest and it comes out less than wonderful.

          I am reopening this thread because I am still dreadfully missing some good paella. I am tempted to fly back to Spain just to get a taste again!

        2. What places have you tried already? I know Cambalache on Mount Pleasant has paellas on the menu but haven't tried myself.

          And I've heard that Jamie Kennedy at the Gardiner has paella on the menu sometimes -

          505 Mount Pleasant Rd, Toronto, ON M4S2L9, CA

          1. Ive had a pretty good paella at Embrujo Flamenco...takes a while to prepare (over 50 minutes when I was there), but at least you know it's made to order and not standing around getting mushy.
