Must Eat Places in Sevilla, Spain

My short stay here in Sevilla was spent eating well at these few places:

1. Bocata’s Manolo: You can find this little sandwich spot on a neighborhood corner in the southern part of the city. The place inside is small with just enough space for 4-5 people to wait at a time. Looking at the menu, you’ll find a long list of tasty sandwiches to choose from, all at a very affordable price. I picked up a delicious Grana y Oro bocata (Spanish tortilla and ham sandwich) and a drink for only 3 EUR.

Manolo’s sandwiches are sure to keep your belly full and wallet happy for the rest of your afternoon. It’s no wonder this place is a hotspot.

2. Cerveceria La Grande: This local cerveceria is located right across the Puente de Isabel II (Isabel Bridge) and serves fresh seafood tapas and beer. We ordered a few plates of gambas (prawns) scattered with big sea salt chunks. It’s a nice place to hang out in between meals to eat and watch the people walk by. No trip to the cerveceria is complete without a ‘few’ glasses of beer. You’ll most likely be served Cruzcampo, a beer originating in Sevilla and extremely popular throughout Spain. They’re open during lunchtime until around 4:00pm and then again in the evening for dinner. Make sure to get there before everyone closes down shop for ‘siesta.’

3. Mamarracha Tapas y Brasas: La Mamarracha is a contemporary tapas bar located just a few blocks from the famous La Giralda (Cathedral of Sevilla). The staff is laid back and the selection of tapas here are excellent. We spent a few hours for dinner here on our final night in Sevilla. Since I wasn’t familiar with the menu, I just sat back and let the others order for the table. Each dish that came out was better than the previous one.

Must Haves:

  • Ensaladilla rusa (Russian Salad-trust me, just order it)
  • Solomillo de buey (Beef Tenderloin)
  • Burrata de mozzarella (Mozzarella Burrata)
