Las Tapas

Sevilla food represents the cuisine of the South of Spain; which to the contrary of Northern cuisine, is lighter because southern people eat less (they eat a few tapas or small rations) because their rhythm of life is more relaxed; the eating schedule for lunch is from 14:00 to 15:00 or later and for dinner it’s from 21:30 on.

Las Tapas de Sevilla According to the legend, the tapas (las tapas sevillanas) were created by the king of Castile, Alfonso X; he had to drink wine and small rations of food between meals in order to recover from an illness; then the king decreed that all taverns couldn’t serve wine to customers unless it was served with a small snack or “tapa” (the word Tapa derives from the Spanish word “tapar” that means “to cover”).

Las tapas, as traditional dishes, are the greatest Spanish meal invention and have evolved through history with new ingredients and styles which are the influence of other countries and cultures. Some of the most preferred tapas are: Foie Toast with Jamon Ibérico, Shrimp Fritters, Spicy Sausage and Cheese Tortilla, Fried Black Pudding (Morcilla Frita), Stuffed Tomatoes tapas, Prawn croquettes, Artichokes with clams, empanadas, Spanish Ham Croquettes, Asparagus Omelet, and more.

Tapas sevillanas Sevillians serve tapas as small quantities of any type of typical Andalusia food accompanied by a drink; the prices of tapas range from 1.50 to 3 Euros and about 1 Euro for the drink; it’s possible to find places that offer free tapas.

Tapas are an important part of life for Sevillians. You’ll find tapas bars in almost every corner in the city, in the streets, near schools, restaurants, bars, in the city centre and surrounding places so you’ll have a lot of opportunities to taste this typical dish.
