Paella in Madrid or Barcelona?

chinglish | May 3, 200707:18 AM     16

Hello all,

Leaving for Spain next week and we had to cut out Valencia due to time constraints.
My question is which city should I try great authentic paella (the rabbit/snails variety) ?

We wll be hitting:
Madrid - 2 nights
Seville - 1 night
Ronda - 1 night
Granada - 2 nights
Barcelona - 4 nights

So far i'm thinking Madrid or Barcelona is best bet since we have more time there. I read recommendations for El Ventorrillo Murciano in Madrid and that is the sort of place we're looking for - not too touristy or upscale. Also saw Eto's wonderful post on 7 Portes in Barcelona - but wondering if its too touristy?

Any thoughts would be great, thanks!
