Seville is a carnivore’s paradise, a city full of exquisitely prepared dishes that are heavy on meat and heavier on taste. The masterful hands in the kitchen here know exactly what they are doing, so don’t be put off by the experimental nature of some of the dishes ― just sit back and enjoy them. These are the must-try traditional dishes of Seville, a collection perfect for social evenings and no small amount of red wine.
Pork doesn’t get much better than this, does it? This secret cut of perfect pork practically melts in your mouth, but not before giving you a soft kiss on the lips and a knowing wink.
Solomillo al Whiskey
We’re not entirely sure what the story is behind the city’s whiskey sauce, but then we’re not exactly going to pry. We heard the words ‘whiskey’ and ‘sauce’ and involuntarily licked our collective lips. Add an expertly grilled pork loin to the equation, and you’re onto something truly special.
Carillada de Cerdo
Sticking with the magnificent pig, you’ll see plenty of pig cheeks on the menus of Seville. Don’t think about it too much, although you’ll struggle to think of anything as these tender beauties come apart in your mouth. Absolute magic.
Serranito de Lomo
We are well and truly onboard with the hot sandwich for breakfast thing that Andalusia has going on, and it doesn’t get any more ‘Seville’ than the Serranito de Lomo. Seared pork loin, salty Serrano ham, a little bit of cheese and pepper, and some truly magnificent bread. 11 out of 10.
Espinacas con Garbanzos
We’re going to go ahead and throw a bone to the vegetarians out there. Now, Seville is carnivore city, but that isn’t to say there isn’t anything for herbivores to enjoy either. Espinacas con Garbanzos is out favourite, a marvellous mixture of spinach and chickpeas that has been prepared in these parts for centuries, primarily by the Jewish and Moorish communities of Seville. You’ll likely get a massive crouton in the middle of it all, which is alright by us.
