WE THINK: Traditional rice restaurant in Poble Sec serving paella to soft-spoken and well-behaved locals and us. Delicious black rice with baby squid and artichokes gave us black tongues and happy bellies (and inspired the horrible title of this post). The small grilled squid and fried artichokes were a hit as usual and the other starters, especially the fried spring onions, were yummy too. Desserts were ordered out of pure greed but went down with a smile.
