The Spanish Paella by Rodrigo de la Calle
A tribute to Joël Robuchon at the Mercado de San Miguel in Madrid
By José Carlos Capel @JCCapel
Whatever the day of the week, the position that the chef Rodrigo de la Calle has just inaugurated at the Mercado de San Miguel in Madrid under the name of “Arroces en paella” usually supports long lines. In a small space and with the help of a young team, he dispatches dozens of tapas and rice rations every day at variable prices, between 8 and 16 euros. On the list, paella valenciana, fideuá and black rice with squid and shrimp, vegetable rice and, among others, a tourist Spanish paella that has become super sales of the house. Paella Power, the name of the stand, is the second brand of the El Invernadero restaurant in whose new location in Madrid Rodrigo de la Calle continues to open roads through the green haute cuisine.
“Secrets? We use good ingredients and we do not skip any steps. We produce the broths daily, and rice grown in the Albufera of Valencia”
