Paelladelphia

We just came across three takes on paella courtesy of Philadelphia magazine. They recommend the Portugese-style paella at Taste of Portugal in northeast Philly (“crammed with saffro-infused rice, lobster, shrimp, clams, scallops, squid, chicken and pork cubs, and Portugese chorizon”), the $75 lobster paella at Amada and the deconstructed paella at Restaurant M:

At this Washington Square spot, chef David Katz grills squid bodies stuffed with saffron rice and crumbled chorizo and plates them with braised Cornish hen legs, steamed lobster, cherry tomato confit and parsley gelée, all drizzled with smoked paprika oil.
