It was two birthdays ago when my daughter surprised me with a dinner reservation at Telefèric Barcelona in Walnut Creek (CA). I had mentioned to her some weeks earlier that I haven’t had paella, let alone the authentic Spanish dish, in forever. The last time that I remember was that absolutely mouth-watering seafood paella at Dona Nena’s Restaurant in Manila…ages ago.

So, my daughter took me to Telefèric Barcelona, a Spanish tapas restaurant in downtown Walnut Creek, its first U.S. location. It has branched to Palo Alto and Los Gatos, as well. Teleferic, by the way, means a cable railway or a mountain cable car or gondola. Run by the family matriarch, Soledad Urubayen, it initially opened in Barcelona 22 years ago. The Walnut Creek restaurant opening was overseen by her son, Xavi Padrosa.
