If you’re looking for a delicious food & drink event to check out this spring, look no further than the return of Vancouver’s Patio Paella Series with the Paella Guys, hosted by ¿CóMO? Taperia. The duo is gearing up for a tasty spring and summer filled with fresh paella, patio sips, tapas, and conservas. So if that sounds like your jam, read on!

Last year, Chef Javier Blanc earned fourth place in the coveted World Paella Day Cup competition in Spain. And this year? The legendary chef and his team are back to present Vancouver residents with some of the most flavourful, authentic paella around.

“Chef Javier makes some of the best paella in the world, and we are so lucky to work with their team again for what’s likely going to be another great summer series,” says Shaun Layton, co-owner of ¿CóMO? Taperia. “The paella takes about an hour to prepare and during that time, guests can order from our full tapas and drinks menu, making a full afternoon event out of it.”
