Food in Seville

As in the rest of Spain, when it comes to experiencing food in Seville, the best way to sample some the city’s southern Spanish flavors is by going out for tapas. Hopping from one bar to the next, you can try different plates, sharing them among your group, and all while drinking local libations. Here are some of the region’s most popular dishes worth sipping or sinking your teeth into.

Gazpacho is indisputably the south’s most well known dish, and likely doesn't resemble anything you've tried back home. Liquid-y smooth, the tomato-based soup is so beverage-like that it is often served in a glass over ice. That said, if you’re into the cold-soup concept, but looking for something a little more substantial, you might want to try salmorejo, gazpacho’s thicker, hardier cousin. Made with more bread, the creamy textured concoction is often topped with a sprinkle of jamón and hard-boiled egg.

After you've warmed up (or rather cooled down) your appetite with some gazpacho, go for one of the region’s more filling dishes, like pescaito frito. The famously southern delicacy consists of small fish, like anchovy or mullet, fried and served with slices of lemon. Still hungry? Give the ultra-Sevillano huevos a la flamenca a try. These eggs served with jamón, tomato, potatoes, onions, sausage, sherry and more, are not for those with a small appetite.

Complement your meals with southern sweets like tortas de aceite, essentially large crispy crackers made with olive oil and covered in a bath of sugar and anise. Or try yemas de San Leandro, egg-yolk-based sweets that indeed taste a lot better than they sound.

Wash down all these zesty Seville flavors with a local beverage like Jerez (AKA sherry). Or, get a taste of Morocco’s ever-present influence in southern Spain by visiting a Moroccan tearoom, where you can sample the neighboring country’s sugary mint tea.
