I plan to visit Valencia for a few days next month. Unfortunately, the budget here will probably not accommodate Ca'Sento. I would like to sample as much local fare as possible, but will not rule out places specializing in the food of other regions of Spain.
I would like to devote one lunch to paella. These two places are on my list, and one name given to me by a local, and I would love to hear comments about them including what type of rice dish is best to order, and also if there is a way to arrive by public transport. If not, more or less how much would a taxi cost? Is there anything I need to know beforehand about a paella lunch? (I believe I need to order in advance and that the rice dish is served for a minimum of two persons, correct?)
La Matandeta in Alfafar
L'Establiment in El Palmar
I think we will plan a mix of stand-up at the bar and sit-down places for the other meals. This is what I have so far; please comment and add other ideas and recommendations for each place..

Casa Jomi in Natzaret (tapas; is this a shaky neighborhood?) http://www.casajomi.com/
Any good eating inside the food market?
We get along well in Spanish and would prefer to visit places that are not mobbed with tourists...
