Valencia in Eastern Spain was founded in 138 BC by the Roman and is the undisputed home of paella, a natural port in the Mediterranean is one of the most important producers of rice in Spain ever since rice was introduced by the Moors centuries ago.
Valencia is also the ancestral home of our Chef Gabriel Flores, founder and executive chef of Top Spanish Cafe located in the Georgia Ave Main Street Corridor in the up and coming Parkview neighborhood in NW Washington DC, two blocks from the Petworth/GA Metro Station served by the Green and Yellow Line. And is without exaggeration, we can say that Paella runs thru our chef's veins
For this simple reason, Paella is Top Spanish Cafe specialty, and our paellas are considered one of the best in Washington DC.
Paellas make a great dish to share on your next dinner party. It makes the perfect main for every occasion, served as a hot main dish or as Tapas style small plates.
White wine is the perfect companion with our Seafood and Vegetarian Paellas and for the Traditional Valencian paella (Paella Valenciana) is better served with a red wine.
Top Spanish Cafe also offers a variety of tapas and a great selection of wines from Spain and other selected areas.
You can enjoy our paellas by visiting our restaurant or to go order, remember we also cater.
