Bulla Gastrobar “serves up some amazing dishes inspired by the gastrobars in Spain,” the website wrote. “The paella de pollo, which features chicken prepared with artichoke hearts, juicy portobello mushrooms, green peas, sofrito, and saffron, is served alongside some other favorites such as chicken pintxos and chicken croquettes.”

Bulla — pronounced boo-yah — serves Spanish-style tapas.

Bulla “literally means ‘noise’ but basically has connotations of fun, excitement, commotion, liveliness,” owner Carlos Centurion told an interviewer at the original location in the Coral Gables neighborhood of Miami.

If chicken isn’t your favorite dish, Bulla has plenty more to offer. Yelp reviewers praised not only the food, but also the drinks.
