Cocina Genoveva offers classic paella prepared by a Spanish cook, Martin Gonzalez. He grew up surrounded by the women in his family including his mother, aunts, and grandmother who all taught him heirloom recipes, including the paella. According to his wife Marla, Martin doesn't believe in using shortcuts when he cooks, so he refrains from using artificial flavorings and instead makes paella the old-fashioned way: with real paprika and saffron. They serve two kinds of paella: Paella Mixta, with Spanish chorizo, prawns, crab, olives, and bell pepper; and Paella Negra, a dark-colored paella made with squid ink. Both versions are sold at P150 per quarter-kilo and P280 per half-kilo. If you want to try this famous SIDCOR dish, better be at the bazaar early before it runs out.
