Tapas, Tapas, Tapas
Today was all about food.
The morning began with a walk across the Puente De Isabel Bridge to a local food market, selling fresh fruit and meat.
Walking through the crowded market and watching the stall owners barter with such vigour really made me feel like we had found a pocket of Spanish culture and had embedded ourselves in it.
On every corner you are enticed by a number of tapas restaurants each serving a delicious array of Sevilla style tapas at very affordable prices, so it is easy to eat to your hearts content on a budget. After drooling at several menus we chose a little tapas place on the corner called 'Bars Gonzalo', which had a great menu and offered a lovely view of the main street near the main attractions. We eventually settled for five tapas, beer and wine which only came to 18 euros.
I think that something about the Spanish Sun makes you crave siestas. Being an avid napper myself this is the only place where I can indulge in my usual afternoon nap without feeling guilty as, the whole town falls into a slumber between 3pm to 5pm. Considering my unconditional love for naps, I embraced with my arms wide open and woke up in time to enjoy some sangria in a local bar near our apartment.
Once again we took to wandering the streets in search of a restaurant for dinner. After about 40 minutes we discovered it, the best tapas restaurant I been to since arriving in Seville, Bar Estrella.
Bar Estrella is tucked away on a little street near the Museo del bail Flamenco, not only does it serves the best food ever but it possibly one of the cutest restaurants I have ever seen.
The food was too good to resist and we spent the evening stuffing ourselves to brim before the waddle home.
