Although Seville is beautiful throughout the year, it is true that the end of September is the ideal time for maximum enjoyment and to squeeze out and savour the best of the city. Whether you have been before or not, in the Sevillian capital there is a plan that never expires and is always a success. One of the best options is to follow an Iberian tapas route through the historic centre of Seville. Today, we are going to tell you which places you should visit and relish.
Throughout the province of Seville (and Andalusia in general) gastronomy functions at another level with exquisite dishes for all palates; to taste these delights with historical buildings in the background, in emblematic squares or charming narrow streets, is an extra and turns Seville in to a special place for tapas. The historic centre is the key area of this route, so have no doubts, choose a Petit Palace in Seville so that you are just a few steps from the most outstanding places.
Have you heard of “countryside squid” or “sirloin roque“? We will tell you about them because this is pure Seville… the Seville of Los Coloniales (The Colonials) one of the best places for tapas in the city. If we also add to this the extrovert characters of the waiters, we are talking about one of the perfect places to have a good time with excellent gastronomy. Take note: Plaza del Cristo de Burgos (Christ of Burgos Square) and in the heart of the city. Don’t forget to try the Iberian toast, the Sirloin with Port or the salmorejo (well known Andalusian cold soup). Remember to go early in order to have a table.
A few metres away from this tavern you will find another place of a similar level in Seville: El Rinconcillo, another highly authentic place with totally vintage decoration and an outstanding menu of excellent wines and tapas that delight their faithful clientele. Although at El Rinconcillo the Iberian tapas such as those with sirloin or game are great favourites, you really have to try their Russian salad because it is unique in the world. A good wine to accompany and voila, the perfect plan.
If you would like to get to know the local atmosphere, so typical in Seville is to take your “third of a bottle of beer” in the street and the ideal place is in the Plaza del Salvador (Salvador square). In this beautiful enclave of Seville at lunch time, is where hundreds of locals take their below zero beers and their extra large olives (the most tasty in the world). In any of the small bars you will find Iberian tapas or typical ham and cheese tapas, all types in abundance, but La Bodequita is the most authentic.
During the day or at night and along almost any street, square or alley, tapas in Seville are much more than an excuse to go out with friends, they are a tradition. So, if you want to live city life to the maximum and enjoy it like never before, do not hesitate to let yourself go, tasting and savouring every bite and every delicacy.
