Does anybody have a recipe for El Magueys Spanish rice?
I would like to have the recipe for El Magueys (restaurant) Spanish rice, it is so yummy. I love Spanish rice if it is not too saucy and if it does not have this super strong taste. Does anyone know how to make it?

SPANISH RICE LIKE FROM A RESTAURANT!
1 cup rice
2 cups water
1 tablespoon tomato boullion *
2 tablespoons butter or vegetable oil
This is the way to make Spanish rice just like from a Mexican restaurant. I got this recipe from my latin friend after helping with countless barbecues and parties. This is the way her family has made it for years.
Heat the butter or oil in a skillet on medium heat. When hot, add rice to skillet and let get nice and toasty not burnt, have water ready and just as the rice starts giving off a toasted smell add the water to the pan.
It will sizzle; as it's sizzling, add the tablespoon of tomato bouillon to the skillet and stir. Cover with a lid and let cook just like you would normally, (about 20 minutes).
That is all there is to it, very simple and very easy. You could also add about a 1/4 cup of diced up carrots, corn or green beans if you choose to do so, while the rice is cooking.
*Tomato bouillon can sometimes be found in the ethnic aisle of your local supermarket. If you can't find it there, then try a Mexican market and they should have it.
Anyone know a restaurant in downtown Madrid that will be able to seat a large group?
I need to find a restaurant (preferably Spanish) in Madrid that will be able to accomodate a group of 64 people on 11th December. Does anyone know of one that might be able to help us?
Question answered by Dart
Why not post this in Spain>Madrid? You'd get better answers.
There must be tons of them, but I don't know the names of many restaurants in Madrid.
Try Casa Botín? You'd have the added benefit of eating at the most historic restaurant in the city.
How to get a film sponsorship from walmart?
I am currently working on making a film that shows the struggles of spanish speakers in small town, USA. I plan to visit local stores and restaurants, speak spanish to them, and see whether they are equipped to handle it.
I've been trying to get walmart to sponsor it. I've called my local stores, and if they understand what I'm talking about, they give me the 1800 walmart number. When I call there, i'm told that sponsorships are given directly from local stores.
Can anyone give me the real deal on who i need to talk to?

Wal-Mart is concerned with it's public and corporate image from the word go. Of course you will get the run-around until they figure that you will get tired and quit.
The company is not what it was when Sam and Bud Walton were in at one time they took the forfront in freedom of speach.
Immersing myself in the Spanish community to learn more Spanish?
I have decided to spend the next three months immersing myself in as much Spanish as possible. Striclty listening to Spanish music, watching Spanish televison stations, watching Spanish news, , dining and ordering in Spanish restaurants, reading Spanish news and reading Spanish books. I hope to able to learn enough so that I would be able to build on what I have learned later on. Do you believe that my idea will work. If yes how much Spanish can I expect to speak following the three months.
Not Much Older Than You
Question answered by Lola J
That will definitely help you learn more Spanish, but just the basics. In three months, you will not be fluent. I recommend taking a Spanish class in addition to your idea. But it is a very good idea.

These are a few that I've gone to over the years and have continued to enjoy:
(Jewish Cuisine) Consider:
Canter's Restaurant on Fairfax Blvd.
Art's Deli in Sherman Oaks
Jerry's Famous Deli, Studio City
(Spanish Cuisine) Consider:
Restaurant Spain (Authentic Spanish Cuisine, excellent paella and tapas and Spanish tortilla [not to be confused with mexican corn or flour tortillas in Mex. restaurants).....the restaurant is nothing fancy, however excellent food with high recommendations)
La Serenata de Garibaldi (Boyle Hgts; West Side Pavillion & Santa Monica) (Not spanish, but really trendy Mexican cuisine...unlike the typical Mexican restaurants) Excellent food with high recomendations!
(French Cuisine) Consider:
Michel Richard Bakery & Cafe on Robertson in L.A., near Beverly HIlls (EXCELLENT bakery and cafe. Food is consistently very good & he's a very well known chef)
La Petit Chateau in No. Hollywood
La Parisienne French Restaurant (French) in Monrovia
(near Pasadena & Arcadia)...been there for years and consistently very good)
Hope this helps!....(there are many, but these are just a few that I recall off the top of my head)

My favorite Spanish restaurant in the world!
Get the Paella and the Chicken Villaroy!
How come there are no Spanish (yes, Spanish, not Mexican) restaurants in the US?
It is considered also with the Italian to be the best food in the world!
Is it just because there where no pure Spanish immigrants to the US?
If you know some restaurant that serves Spanish food where you live please tell me!
For those who don't know about Spanish food, here are some examples:
Paella a la Valenciana
Callos a la Madrileña
Pulpo a la Gallega
LOL, what are the "red states"?
Yes, I never found anyone in Iowa!
To J F :
You couldn't be more stupid and ignorant...
First of all, I'm 100% Spanish, not indigenous like you, garbage picker.
All my family lives in Spain.
Spanish food, not Mexican crap, is if not the best, the second best kind of food in the world.
Argentine beef, is by far the best in the world (and all of it is organic FYI). Everybody knows that!
And no, there are almost none Spanish rest. in the US!!!
Just crappy Mexican shit.
You probably just live on tacos and that crap, so you'd never know...
And, at last I have traveled to Spain 6 times, and 11 times to the US, so I'm not a cheap indian like you.
I make more money in a month that you'd ever make in your poor, sorry, obscure, indian, endogamic life...

Top > Food and Dining > Restaurants > Spanish
For a good selection, I'll have to drive to San Francisco.

What's a good slogan for a Mexican restaurant?
