"A curated list through Seville's many miracles."
Pizza in Napoli, Ramen in Tokyo, Braai in Cape Town, all of us have our bucket lists when it comes to food. A tapas bar-hopping expedition in Seville has to be near the top of most food adorer's itinerary. Being an international asshole, I had the luxury of getting my tips directly from a chef who lived and worked in Seville and therefore had connections and insider information to divulge.
I booked five nights in the beautiful Andalucian city and went about planning my days according to the locations of the restaurants on google maps. Tackling certain neighbourhoods or streets in order so as not to backtrack, I managed to eat at every place on my list, and it was worth every single step and calorie. The restaurants were nicely split up into "must-see" spots which are on many tourist lists, simply because they are legendary or historical, along with some "hidden gems" that would take a more discerning hunt to find.
Below are the Tapas spots I visited with a special mention of the "Must Eat" in each place according to my informant. Much, much love and thanks to Irene Vinyoles for this amazing info.

These recommendations are just personal opinions based on my palate, things change, chefs get fired or replaced, places open-close, relocate, so take it all with a pinch of MSG and discover your own gems too. But please do try a few of these, they have been researched exhaustively.
