Seville is home to 3000 eateries. So where do you even start?
I believe that all food should be comfort food — a delight to the senses, sustaining to the system, and served in a congenial atmosphere. For those who have the pleasure of discovering Seville for the first time, or are arriving again after an absence, I offer this list of my favorite cafés, restaurants, bars, bakeries, and ice cream parlors to help you get started on your culinary tour of the city.
Out to Lunch
My current project, “Out to Lunch,” involves visiting offbeat places in the city and province of Seville, seeking cultural curiosities and great midday meals. Often I hop on a train to visit nearby towns, which have turned out to be even quirkier, friendlier, and richer with scandals (ancient and modern) than I could have imagined. And the food? Absolutely mouthwatering.
