Back in 2008 when we last visited Seville we were given a tip about a newish tapas place from our hotelier (and fellow foodie) Francisco manager of the Alminar. It was a revelation then, our first 'modern' tapas bar, uncluttered with clichés and simply wonderful, unpretentious food with a twist. We were in a group of nine people then and we all remember the trip very fondly, especially the food here. Since then we've visited many similar 'gastro' bars all over Spain, so what would it be like returning to Vineria San Telmo? Thankfully it was as good as we remembered it.
We had as follows.
King prawn carpaccio with toasted sesame seeds and soy sauce.
Vineria San Telmo has now become a tapas institution in Seville. We really hit the jackpot in this city. Four great tapas bars out of four. We decided to quit whilst we were ahead, Vineria San Telmo ended a memorable day of eating in some style. We bumped into tapas queen Shawn Hennessey and joined her for a last drink at Las Teresas....
