🥘 Celebrate together at @mercatgastrobar Every September 20, coinciding with the rice harvest, Valencians celebrate International Paella Day, the date on which we praise this delicious dish of Valencian cuisine and share it with the rest of the world. The dish was first created during the 18th century, when at the end of the week the women of the house used to make up a dish mixing leftovers of chicken, rabbit and beans with the locally grown rice. It was few kilometres south of Valencia, where the main rice fields of the region are, that the Paella was invented: the Albufera, this vast freshwater lake is the official birthplace of this world famous dish. After the Civil War the paella was chosen as the culinary emblem of Spain in order to develop tourism. This dish, is inspired by the colours of the Spanish flag: the red peppers, the tomatoes, the vibrant yellow of saffron rice. This dish of modest origins, has evolved and in some restaurants has become a far from modest plate of food. At Mercat choose between vegetarian, chicken&chorizo, squid ink and seafood paellas 🙌 💻Make your reservation through or 📞Call 03-6211 7969 (1 Mont Kiara) . . . #mercatkl #bangsar #1montkiara #kualalumpur #malaysiancafes #eatnowkl #eatdrinkkl #kldining #klfoodie #timeoutkl #mymalaysia #mycafefood #tapaskl
