While people in Valencia are strict when preparing the real paella, in the hinterland the Costa Blanca freestyle applies. A pleasure trip, where tapas should not be missing and snails sometimes end up in the rice pan.
Through the fronds of the tall palm trees on Alicante’s Esplanada d’Espanya, the sun’s rays find their way onto the wavy mosaic of streets, the tables and chairs of the cafes and restaurants. Do light and shadow irritate the German vacationer? He keeps glancing at the next table, where saffron-yellow rice with fried gambas is delighting the guests in a cast-iron pan. The man keeps flipping back and forth through the menu. Then he calls the waiter over and asks: “Don’t you have any paella?” The waiter smiles. “Oh yes! You can find everything on this page. You need to know: in Alicante we don’t say paella. We say arroces.”
