Driving down San Vicente in Beverly Grove can be a stressful experience involving last-minute lane changes and some very confusing street signs. But if you manage to find your way around without circumnavigating the Beverly Center 30 times, you might notice this place sandwiched between a credit union and a sushi restaurant. La Paella has one of the largest tapas menus we’ve come across and includes popular favorites like silky tortilla española and Madrid specialties like callos a la madrileña - a rich, savory tripe, sausage, and garbanzo bean stew that warms you up for another glass of vino tinto. Their lengthy menu also includes eight different paellas that vary both in toppings and flavors. Try the paella valenciana mixta, aka the O.G. paella, for soft saffron-tinted rice, fresh clams, mussels, shrimp, and some tender chicken and pork. Or go for the paella marinera that nixes the chicken and pork for calamari and king prawns. It's also delicious, nicely cooked, and great for groups looking to add more seafood to their lives.
