Two kinds of paellas at Saffron
Saffron offers Spanish cuisine in a homey hutong setting. The brick walls and décorrr give the restaurant an older, Mediterranean feel, especially in the compact seating on the lower floors. If you’re really looking to get away, sit on the patio where nature will transport you away from city life.
For traditional fare, enjoy sangria (¥50/glass, ¥220/jar) or paella, which comes in two versions: Spanish or squid ink (¥299 small, ¥499 large). Each has similar seafood flavors, but the tomatoes give the Spanish paella a sweeter fragrance.
If you can’t commit to one dish, share some tapas with friends. The garlic mushrooms (¥69) is simple but hits the spot. The sweet and salty flavors of the parmesan and balsamic in the beef carpaccio (¥78) are a little strong, but find balance in each bite.
Relax with friends at Saffron as you try and share food in the classic Spanish style.
