The fishing village of El Saler, seven miles south of the city center, is known among Valencianos for its traditional paella restaurants. The best of these is Casa Carmina, a favorite of local writers like Ferrán Torrent. The decor is nothing special, but the rice, baby eels, anchovies, and cod croquettes prepared by Mari Carmen and Mari José Batlle can't be beat. This is also one of the few places that serve one of the oldest and most authentic paella dishes: arroz con judías y nabos, a soupy concoction of rice, beans, and turnips that is a great winter warmer.

Lunch only. Closed Mondays.
