The Room Art Cuisine
The Room is the perfect spot to get your international fix when you’re craving something different. They offer delicious Thai options as well as incredible fusion Spanish tapas. It’s centrally located right in the heart of the city and has a great, modern atmosphere.
La cacharreria is one of the best breakfast spots in Sevilla, hands down. The space is small and quaint with an exposed brick wall displaying coins from all over the world. The cafe boasts a laid-back atmosphere, an excellent selection of tostadas with a variety of toppings, great coffee, and unforgettable cakes. You’ll find yourself wanting to go back multiple times a week to try them all.
For a break from traditional Spanish tapas, head to Bar Alfalfa. A small, authentic corner bar located right in the center, Bar Alfalfa has delicious tapas with a Mediterranean/Middle Eastern twist. Don’t be deterred if there is little space to move around; just push your way to the bar, and be sure to try all the bruschetta varieties!
Excellent classic tapas in an authentic setting. Taberna Coloniales will almost certainly be crowded when you arrive; don’t give up, it’ll be worth the wait. Make sure you order the solomillo al whisky (pork loin with whiskey sauce) and pollo con almendras (chicken with almond sauce), along with their many other fantastic tapas offerings.
The equivalent of Spanish “fast food,” Cien Montaditos is the perfect place for students on a budget. Their menu has a huge selection of mini sandwiches and on certain days of the week you can get them for only 1€ each! A great place to have a quick snack and enjoy a jarra of sangria or cerveza with friends.
The Good Burger
The Good Burger is a relatively recent addition to Sevilla. The atmosphere is similar to that of Shake Shack in the US, and their weekly specials on certain days of the week are an excellent deal. Make sure to try the Eco Burger on a pretzel bun!
Cervecería La Sureña
A popular Spanish chain offering great deals and typical Spanish tapas. La Sureña is the perfect place to go with a big group because of their cheap drinks and lively atmosphere.
A Turkish wrap sandwich containing either chicken or lamb, shaved from a vertical rotisserie which has been rotating over a flame for hours, and tomato, onion, lettuce, and a few types of sauce. Absolutely addictive and truly delicious. Generally served with fries. Kebap/kebab/shawarma/etc.
When you’re in the mood to try something new and a bit more upscale, Eslava is the spot to go. Make sure to get there early and put your name on the list, because Eslava always fills up. It offers exceptional tapas from “carrillada de cerdo guisadas,” traditional, tender pork cheeks to a delicious “cigarro para Becque,” a crispy, fried mixture of brie, octopus, and squid ink (pictured below).
