Fideuà is a special adaptation of paella in which rice is replaced by noodles. This is one of the signature dishes of Catalonia, and strange as it may seem, there are few restaurants in the Catalan capital which offer a fideuà worthy of recommendation. Although a number of restaurants offer decent quality fideuàs, very few of these could be called excellent.
