Fine dining with delicious paella? Ness is where you have to be!
If there is something Spain is known for, it’s paella. And I am crazy about it! I even learned how to prepare it myself on a city trip to Valencia at Escuela de Arroces y Paella. But obviously it’s nicer when a chef prepares it for you ;-). That’s why I went for dinner at restaurant Ness in the city centre of Valencia. Because here they know how to make really good paella.
Where our Dutchies can skip a lunch easily, in Valencia it’s a different thing. They take their time for it. Like sitting down on a sunny terrace, with delicious wines. Also, I sat down at Ness around lunch time where we drank a beautiful Cava from Hoya de Cadenas. After that they served a variety of small starters. Carpaccio of beef and a carpaccio of shrimp (surprisingly tasty!), a fresh green salad with cucumber and tomato, cheeses, Spanish chorizo and bread. Tip: don’t eat to much of the starter, because the main is still coming and I’m pretty sure you want to finish it completely!

After the starter it was time for paella. In a massive big pot. Filled with delicious seafood like mussels, shrimps and other shellfish. It looked amazing, smelled gorgeous and tasted delicious! A good paella has to stick a little at the bottom of the pan so you get that light roasted flavour. And let me tell you a secret: this was a very good paella! ;-) Naturally served with a good white wine from winery Vicente Gandìa where we did a wine tasting!
