    Paella is a spanish dish that usually comprimises of rice, peas, peppers, prawns and pretty much anything that's laying around, all cooked in a big pan!

    dunno about via mer, but the one i had in spain was v v yummy.

        I tried this at Andorra El Tesoro (robertson quay) and it was lovely! Problem is, I can't remember how to pronounce it. Anyone knows?

                  Wooo..okay...try to pay attention to the waiter's prounication next time.

                  I tried Olive tree paella before too..prefer Via Mia though. =)

                  I went Olive tree 1 for 1 with UOB debit card (CAmpus card)..if no changes to the terms and conditions...debit cards shouldnt be a problem I hope =)

                    Spanish Paella

                      I know of this place in CHIJMES. It's called Ocho. Not tried the paellas there. They take half an hour each to make. If I remember correctly, it's something like $26 per plate?

                      Sorry I can't be of more help

                        You reminded me of Ocho. Ok, I chanced upon this place at chijmes website. Not sure if it taste good, huh?

                          Ocho at CHIJMES is not bad... with nice live music...
                          There are also 2 other Spanish restaurants
                          1) "Tapas Tree" at Clark Quey
                          2) another 1 near Siglap center....

                          Enjoy..

                            I love the paella at Esmiralda and Via Mar. Both are excellent though the taste is not that similar. Different broth to cook the rice.

                              I tried the seafood paella at Ocho, but quite disappointed with it. It doesn't taste good. My hubby had roasted lamb chop, not bad but the portion is not filling. The environment is good with live music.
