Boasting a heavy Spanish influence, the Paella Fideuà comprises a selection of fresh seafood mixed with pasta and cooked together in a homemade lobster broth base. Just one mouthful of the dish will have discerning diners tasting the flavours of delicate Patagonian squid, slow-poached Spanish octopus, white and sweet Spanish prawns and firm Mediterranean Sea bass, all married together with a flowery, earthy saffron emulsion.


On the palate:

The glorious Paella fideuà will forever be etched in your mind, memorable not only for the epicurean experience it offers, but also for its surprisingly light, yet filling palate pleasing bites.

It is indeed a spectacular sharing selection with a tantalising taste sensation and playful and unique dining experience, that will surely impress all gourmands.


What makes it special?

Chef Timothy explains that he picked up the dish during his travels throughout Spain. Paella fideuà is a classic creation in the Southern European country, beloved by everyone for its sublime simplicity and special ability to be cooked with a range of different ingredients to suit specifically what is in season.

Another reason it is a standout dish, is the way it is presented to your table; and the breathtaking dish, that can be enjoyed for lunch or dinner, is indeed a feast to all senses. This exceptional melange of Spanish seafood and pasta is renowned all over the world and Chef Timothy absolutely enjoys serving it to food enthusiasts in Dubai.


Best paired with:

The Paella fideuà is perfectly complemented by the array of delightful dips and sips at Myrra, which can be tailored to your liking. It really is an inimitable dish here in Dubai and there isn’t another you can find like it.
