What to Eat in Seville

It may seem like you can find tapas — or traditional dishes served in small, shareable portions — in just about every major city these days, but the tapas options in Seville are the tried-and-true originals. Plan to try two or three of these varied small plates per meal. Taste favorites like tortilla de patatas (a quiche-like potato dish) or venture for more daring options like rabo el toro (bull's tail). Some places will have menus in English, but it will be helpful to learn Spanish words like plancha (grilled) and frito (fried) to make sure you're ordering something suitable for your taste. For some of the best takes on classic tapas, try the restaurant Tabernera Los Coloniales or the oldest tapas bar in Seville, El Rinconcillo (both spots can be found in the El Centro neighborhood). If you're looking for a more modern twist on the signature dishes, head to upscale restaurants like Vinería San Telmo (located in Barrio Santa Cruz) or Restuarante Egaña-Oriza (in El Centro near the Universidad de Sevilla). Regardless of where you dine, you'll likely taste lots of olive oil; Andalusia is the top exporter of olive oil in the world, and it's frequently showcased in the region's cuisine.

Don't forget to save room for dessert: Try arroz con leche (rice pudding), torta de aciete (sweet, crispy flatbread) or churros y chocolate (long pieces of sugary fried dough and rich hot chocolate for dipping). And if your guilty pleasures lean more toward booze than sweets, be sure to order a Cruzcampo — the hometown beer brewed right in Seville. And vino del verano is a blend of red wine, Sprite and a twist of lemon that is particularly popular among Sevillanos on the hottest summer days.

Meal times may come as a surprise to those not accustomed to Andalusian culture. Sevillanos enjoy late lunches that usually start around 1:30 p.m. and flow into the 2 to 5 p.m. siesta time frame. Dinners are also traditionally late (think 9 to 11 p.m.) and nightlife continues into the wee hours of the morning.
