Paella Now On The Menu

WHAT IS PAELLA?

Paella is a rice dish made with saffron, vegetables, and proteins combined to slow cook in a shallow iron pan. The juices from the proteins and vegetables mix with the saffron during the cooking process which is then absorbed by the rice giving the overall dish a wonderful exotic flavor.

Paella has ancient roots and is believed to have originated in Spain around the mid-19th century. Learn more about the origins of paella here and here.

WHAT MAKES BLUE IGUANA PAELLA UNIQUE?

Our paella is unique because the owners of Blue Iguana bring back key paella ingredients from Mexico. When you try our paella, you are getting a true taste of Mexico prepared by chefs who have had paella in their families for generations.
