Paella

Tokyo Metblog
Authentic paella right in the heart of Tokyo!
I was at La Taperia on Monday, enjoying Madrileno tapas, Rioja wine & a great atmosphere conjured up by the Madrileno owner, Carlos.
Highly recommended, though predictably a little pricey compared to Spain.
Monday is Spanish conversation night, great for those like me wanting to practise their castellano.
Anyone know of other good Spanish restaurants in Tokyo?

    looks delicious. I live in Canada but you could try googling something up if you’re looking for Spanish cuisines in Tokyo.

    Thanks Jin,
    I will take a look. I’m sure there must be a few places around.
    How about in Canada? I guess you must get French restaurants there quite a lot?
    Cheers,
    J

    I found this: http://www.bento.com/gmaps/nearest.html (texts are in Japanese though and flash must be enabled)

    don’t know if it would be much help but try it anyway.

    French restaurants would be most found in Montreal; I live in Toronto where demographics are quite diverse.

    yup. I sure do know a good spanish restaurant. My wife and I find it good anyways… It is on the 6th? or 7th? floor of Lumine in Shinjuku (attached to the station). We have been there 4 times now and have never been disappointed. Enjoy

    Thanks Jin. Wow! There are loads in Tokyo; I’ll have to start going through the list one-by-one…

    Sounds delishious. I’m a big fan of Spanish tapas, the small dishes they prepare with bread, olives, vegetables and so on. I remember having that in Madrid once, with red wine. Gooood!

    Tapas, vino tinto, cerveza; Heaven!
    Spain & Japan: the two best countries for food IMHO – not only does their cuisine taste good, but it’s v.good for you as well.
