Our Cuisine

The chefs behind Ñora are inspired by the old world traditions of Spanish cuisine and the fresh ingredients native to California, creating a style that is delicious and unique. The extensive menu includes traditional and innovative Paella, Tapas, Platters and Desserts.

“Paella, Perfected” – Michael Bauer, SF Chronicle

At Ñora we take a modern approach to making paella. As Chef Monleón would jokingly put it, “my [Valencian] grandmother is probably turning over in her grave with some of the things we do to Paella.” But it’s our approach to Paella that makes us unique. We use ingredients indigenous to California and combinations of flavors that you might never find in Spain. While we have the traditional Valencian Paella recipe on our menu, we’ve also included many unique and innovative creations. As Chef Sarlatte explains, “We don’t necessarily adhere to tradition, rather our goal is to take people on a trip. When people taste our food, they are transported to Spain. It might be because it’s something they had at a tapas bar in Madrid, or it’s something different and unique that still channels the Spanish spirit.”
