As the 18th largest city in the state of California, Valencia enjoys a very diverse food scene with many cuisine options. This includes seafood, Italian and tapas restaurants in casual and upscale settings. Quaint beach cafes offer cast iron shrimp, all-you-can-eat lobster, red ruby trout, barramundi and California halibut. Tapas rooms have extensive wine selections along with corte de falda, a grilled skirt steak. You will also find desserts like flan, banana bread and panna cotta in European-style cafes. If you prefer the familiarity of national chain restaurants, there are plenty to choose from here as well.
