Arros QD – Fitzrovia

A world without paella would just be un”saffron”able 🥘 {gifted}

I cannot tell you how much I love @arrosqd ♥️ With a focus on Valencian food in the heart of Fitzrovia, you can expect enough wood-fired paella to feed a small army, exquisite interiors and side dishes you’ll dream about for days 🥰 It’s *NOT* cheap but the food & whole experience is excellent 🙌🏼

Here’s what we ate but see my website (link in bio) for full descriptions as there’s not room here!


🌱⁣⁣⁣⁣Vegetable paella w/ traditional aioli


💭The flavours in this are beautiful! There’s deep smokiness from the rice, sweetness from the veg (and the caramelised rice too), citrus from the squeezes of lemon and bitterness from the way it’s cooked on the pan. The aquafaba aioli is clever and adds a nice creamy element, though it could’ve been a touch more garlicky⁣

❓Order again? Yes
