What’s So Special About Our Paella?
Paella is the national dish of Spain, and beloved the world over. But what makes our paella truly great? Well, for starters we use only the very freshest ingredients, including Calasparra rice, crisp veggies, locally sourced seafood, savory sausage, chicken, and lots of imported saffron.
These delicious ingredients are cooked together in large, traditional paella pans, called paellera. We cook these huge pans of paella on open flames in front of our hungry guests so they can watch and get to experience the magic of observing the best paella in southwest Florida being made.
Not to mention, we at Fire & Rice consider paella to be the ultimate party dish. Whether we’re serving one hundred people or twenty, paella is a crowd pleaser because wherever our food truck appears, you’re sure to get a great show and an unforgettable feast. Make your next food truck meal memorable with Fire and Rice. You and your friends will love our paella, we guarantee it.
