i second la bodega. i've only tried five spanish restaurants in vancouver: el patio on cambie, casa sleigh in steveston (i think they're closed now), marbella's on robson (they're closed now too), la ventana somewhere in gastown, and la bodega - and la bodega is by far the BEST. yum yum!

it is a restless moment. she has kept her head lowered, to give him a chance to come closer. but he could not, for lack of courage. she turns and walks away.

Wow, old thread! Saw some names I haven't seen in forever!

Despite the fact that some may be convinced that La Bodega is the de-facto go-to place for Spanish cuisine (most may not agree however) I have tried paella at Havana on The Drive. I've had a paella in Ibiza, Spain so comparing it to what is served at Havana isn't the world's best but it's easy to get to and the price is right. I cannot compare to La Bodega as I have not been there.

I've had La Bodega and its alright, but I found it a bit dry. Unlike most places around Vancouver, like Locus on Main and Havana on Commercial, La Bodega at least makes the Paella properly in a pan with crusting rice on the bottom.

The best paella I've had was at Taberna del Alabardero in downtown Seattle. Its made in true fashion and takes quite a while to come out after ordering (30 minutes or longer). What comes out is a real treat though.
