Papas aliñás (dressed potatoes)
Papas aliñás is one of the most ordered tapas in the city. Although they have a very simple elaboration, they are extremely appetizing and they have a very surprising taste. In my opinion, this is the first tapa you should order because they are quite light.
Despite the fact that the recipe may slightly vary from establishment to establishment, they all have something in common… vinegar! If you like it, then you’re going to love this tapa.
We have tried them at Bodeguita Romero, a restaurant with more than 70 years of history.
Mantecaíto is a little sandwich made with glass bread of sirloin with whiskey sauce and chips. Although we have not found it in too many restaurants, it is a highly recommended tapa. On one hand, the sirloin with whiskey sauce is one of the most traditional dishes of Seville. On the other hand, the city is quite known by its great variety of these small snacks.
Also, as you can see, it looks quite appetizing… It’s a delight! If you find it, don’t miss the chance to eat it. We’re sure you’ll love it. If you want to try this one, you should go to Quoore.
Spinach with chickpeas
Spinach with chickpeas is one of the most traditional dishes in Seville, especially during Lent and Easter. Since it’s very tasty, it has become one of the most requested tapas in the city.
In my opinion, you will find one of the best spinach with chickpeas tapas of the city at Típico Bar de Tapas.
Even though it had too much paprika, the dish was exquisite. If you’re near Triana, you should try it.
Originally, the pringá was made with the leftovers of the meat that was shredded by cooking a pout or Andalusian stew. Today it’s one of the star dishes of Seville. You can find it almost in any bar or restaurant.
Although the recipe admits certain variations, my favorite pringá has shredded meat, black pudding and a little of lard. Perfect for dieters!
If you want to try it, you should go to Bodeguita Romero as it’s their specialty.
It’s a very tasty stew with a gelatinous texture. If the meat is of good quality and it’s well cooked, you’ll notice how you practically don’t need a knife to cut it or separate it from the bone.
As it’s one of our favorite dishes, whenever we see it on a menu, we order it. In Bar Salomón, Rey de los Pinchitos you can find a rather generous and very very nice oxtail tapa.
Possibly, we are in front of the most traditional recipe in Seville. It is a pork loin sandwich with Serrano ham, tomato slices and a fried green pepper. Don’t be fooled by the messy look of the dish. Once all the ingredients are inside the bread and you try them, you’ll notice that you have a delicacy in your hands.
Although it may look like a tapa… It’s a huge dish! We share one in Mesones del Serranito and we ended up more than satisfied. Totally recommendable!
Although it is a very simple recipe and it’s widespread by the rest of Spain, these skewers of marinated meat are a delight. It is a series of meat cubes skewered on a metal stick and preferably grilled.
If you want to try the best in Seville, no matter who you ask, everyone will answer the same… You have to go to Bar Salomón, Rey de los Pinchitos! Even though it’s not in the city center, it’s worth getting close just to try their star dish… the brochettes!
As you can see, the gastronomy of Seville is very varied and although, in this post, I have showed you many traditional dishes, there are still many to name. There are so many that it is very difficult to taste them all in a few days. Therefore, trying them all is always a good excuse to come back to the city. If you’re still wondering… what to eat in Seville? These are the dishes you can’t miss… But you should keep in mind that there are many more!
