La Tortilla Assesina, Inverness's Spanish Restaurant.
The Spanish Restaurant in Inverness, 'La Tortilla Assesina' literally translates in to English as the 'killer omelette', a tongue in cheek joke, connected to a cult Spanish film where a famous Spanish Chef serves a poison omelette. Opened in 2002 and since that time has established itself as one of Inverness's most popular restaurants.
La Tortilla Restaurant offers the very best of Duncan Chisholm's favourite Spanish Tapas Bar culture from right across Spain including its regional variations. Duncan's hobby is motor biking and this took him to the remotest corners of Spain, off the tourist trails to discover some very special tapas bars.

Groups of 10 or more who book in advance at La Tortilla, can have a giant Paella cooked to order at the table. For those who are unfamiliar with what a Paella exactly is - it is a Valencian rice dish that originated in its modern form in the mid-19th century near lake Albufera, a lagoon in Valencia, on the east coast of Spain. Many non-Spaniards view paella as Spain's national dish, but most Spaniards consider it to be a regional Valencian dish. Valencians, in turn, regard paella as one of their identifying symbols.
