‘La plancha’ is a chrome plate grill that we use to sear our dishes.
‘La parilla’ is our char-grill and sits at the heart of the MoVida Aqui kitchen. It is a primal way of cooking and makes for a delicious smoky flavour in our dishes.
When ordering paella or any of the arroz (rice dishes) please allow forty minutes.
