The reaction of a Spaniard when he saw the name they give to paella in the United States

Within Spanish gastronomy, paella is one of the elements that creates the most controversy within the borders. More specifically among the inhabitants of the Valencia Community, a place where it is typical.

There is a lot of debate about the ingredients that a good paella should have: what if vegetables, what if seafood. Every time someone decides to upload a photo of their creation to social networks, criticism rains down.

However, in a restaurant in the United States they have taken things to the limit. A video uploaded to TikTok by user @macarenagterron that has more than a million views says it all.

Based in the United States, she went with her father to a restaurant. Upon seeing the name 'Spanish rice' given to what appears to be a paella, the man's reaction is quite clear: “What a fucking shit” the man blurts out, followed by a big laugh.

Several people in the comments have pointed out that this is the name given to a type of rice in Mexico. Others criticize the mania in the United States for adding the name 'Spanish' to everything that is of Hispanic origin, whether from Spain or Latin America.
