Love Paella? Come to the Pop Up Paella Patio Every Sunday at Bardon

Are you aware that there’s a Paella Patio popping up every Sunday at MacGregor Terrace in Bardon? If you want to eat or learn to cook this Spanish Valencian dish, a chef will prepare and create the paella right in front of you.

The pop-up paella is open from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Pata Negra Brisbane. The chef will also offer tips and tricks on how to prepare this flavourful rice dish.

The ingredients used in creating the paella, including gluten-free options, are from the Spanish Deli next door. Since the pop-up is at the patio, you may bring your dog for Paella night if you like.

Paella originated from the coastal areas of Spain centuries ago. It is always served in a large but shallow pan and it is the most popular Spanish dish.

This dish is filled with hearty seafood mixed with chorizo and spices like saffron. Some variants, however, may also include chicken.

While you’re at Pata Negra, you may as well order the Spanish wines from the bar to match with the paella or order their other dishes.  You may also brush up on your Spanish language as the staff at Pata Negra are fluent.

Learn a Bit of Spanish

Pata Negra also hosts free Spanish lessons at the restaurant every second Thursday evening of the month. It takes place from 6:30 p.m. to 8:20 p.m.

Teacher Maria’s classes are relaxed since it is not structured. Rather, she’ll teach you common Spanish phrases to use in conversations.

The Spanish language classes are limited to 10 people per session.

Pata Negra supports The Australian Spanish Socio-Cultural Association (TASSCA).
