Moreover, all the history that this city has lived is also reflected in its delicacies. We will tell you about it below:
In Seville, and in general in Andalusia, it is very typical to go out for tapas, and to order several dishes to share, with a good wine or a very fresh beer. Although you can also try these same recipes in individual dishes.
Ideal for ordering in the summer! It is a cold soup of tomato, pepper, garlic, cucumber, oil, vinegar and salt. A real Andalusian delicacy. Accompany it with diced ham and hard-boiled egg.

If you want to feel like a good Sevillian, you have to try the serranitos or the montaditos. At first glance they may look the same, but they are not. Serranitos are chicken or beef sandwiches with pepper, tomato and ham. Accompany them with aioli.

Add the fried tomato and when everything is ready, fry an egg and enjoy! It is recommended to take a lot of bread to flock the dish.
One of the easiest recipes if you know how to cook them. And in Seville, they know how do it very well. They’re cut squid and made on a griddle or in a frying pan. They are served with a green sauce that gives them even more flavour.
This recipe is very typical to prepare at Easter above all. It consists of a dish of chickpeas and spinach cooked individually, and then joined together in a pan with different spices. It is possible that this is one of the most typical dishes in Seville.
