El Rincon de Pepe, Sitges SPAIN

This cake was interesting. It was on the dry and crumbly side, and I’m not sure if it was supposed to be. I think it worked out fine because of the bitter orange syrup and ice cream, but it would have been a disappointment on its own.

This is just a small part of a very large individual portion that came in a paella pan. When the paella pan arrived, I couldn’t believe it was for one person! Anyway, this paella was really tasty and I loved all the beautiful seafood in it. More, please!
