Weekend Food Tripping at: Las Paellas Cafe

What is "Paella"?

Paella is a typical Valencian Rice dish from Spain. Paella is usually garnished with vegetables and meat or seafood. The three main ingredients are rice, saffron and olive oil.

Too technical? Well, worry no more, this is how my weekend food tripping went. Lovely Paella meal at Greenhills' Las Paellas Cafe!!!

Note: You have to order 30minutes advance as this really took such a long time to arrive....and it looks like this..who would get angry if it is this cute???? (well, to answer my own question, a Hungry person would....)

This is the famous Valenciana Paella worth Php450.00 (approx $10.00)

Wooohhooooo....this is good for upto 4 servings...yummmmeeeehhhh!
I'm allergic to seafood, but I pop on a pill just to EAT THIS! hahaha

The lovely seafood platter. Sooo worth it!!! Everything is just scrumptious! This is worth Php265.00 (approx $6.50)

The Baby Back Ribs for Php260.00 (approx $6.00)

This is on the house!!! The lovely staff from Las Paellas Cafe gave us a free piece of cake that was made of egg whites (sorry we forgot the name) :P

It was a great dinner, all the food are wonderful and yummy. And most of all ? AFFORDABLE
No complaints on their staffs, all are super friendly and wonderful.
Calls everyone Senor/senora/senorita --- CUTE!
Thanks for the wish everyone, I know I didn't have a good experience on my previous meal, but this one ROCKS!!!!
Sorry if I made you guys hungry, I can't help it! I have to share!
