Seville, Spain: Food Worth Dreaming of
After dancing so much, there is always space for a food dish, something that was always present when I visited Seville .
For breakfast, we would have toast with red butter to recharge our energies for the day. For lunch, one day we would eat, fried breaded camembert cheese with raspberry sauce and eggplant musaka at the terrace of Plaza de Los Terceros. Another day we would have “pulpo a la gallega” or some pinchitos (meat on a stick) at Betis Street.
At night we would delight ourselves with more exquisites like: the typical fried fish (pescaito frito, as people from Seville call "fried fish"), chicken with mushroom sauce, cod with asparagus sauce or tender pork with whisky sauce….
One delicious dish after another, in company of good friends, a cold "tinto de verano" (red wine mixed with orange soda or fresh fruit) or a "rebujito" (local spirit drink), a lot of dancing and nice views, were the perfect ingredients to live Seville’s slogan : “the construction of a dream.”
