Cuisine: Spanish, Tapas
Location: Leederville – Newcastle Street
With a day off work and lovely weather, I took a trip to Pinchos in Leederville to get some paella. On Mondays and Wednesdays they serve up chicken and chorizo paella, and on Fridays they serve up a seafood paella.
If you walk past the front of the restaurant, you will see a table with a large paella dish with the food cooking. It certainly got my attention, and plenty of passer bys too. It’s available for dine in or takeaway.
Pinchos Food Review Summary
Verdict: I came for the paella but the chef was trying to promote another Spanish dish, the name which escapes me and is hard to pronounce. Instead, I settled for this interesting looking dish which I have never eaten. Instead of rice, it uses pasta but looks like chopped up vermicelli. For $12.50, a large pile was heaped into the mini paella dish and served hot with a wedge of lemon and a dollop of optional garlic aioli. At first, it became hard to eat much of it without spilling it and it was piping hot. After things cooled down, I really started to get into this dish. It tastes quite nice, but it has something about it that just keeps you coming back for more. The noodles are cooked well, they aren’t dry, and they are coated in a subtle mix of Spanish flavours and spices which produce an interesting taste. There’s a fair amount of seafood, mainly calamari, but the odd chunk of soft flaky fish is to be found. It’s quite a filling meal and while it might be heating up for summer, it’s a dish that you can’t pass on. And I experienced something new too.
