Markets, Seville, To See & Do,

Thursday Feria Flea Market

Every Thursday morning, the early bird catches the………. useless piece of junk. That’s not why we come here though. Atmosphere is king, as locals, gypsies and society’s eccentrics gather to shout at each other, over-do the early morning beers and try and off-load their worthless crap on to other people. It’s an all round good time, lashings of banter, beers and bargain hunters. Come here for an off the tourist trail, locals experience. Maybe, just maybe, if you’re lucky, you might even pick up an old dusty lampshade.

El Pinton

El Pinton aka Mr Paint. These guys have a shmorgeous board of wonders for your mouth. Start by getting stuck in to the cocktail menu and once you’re suitably sloshed, roll your way on to the a la carte tapas. We like the ceviche and we think they are kings of arroz. If nothing more the interior design is airy, fresh and mega trendy so it’s a great place to come and relax while you whittle down that travel fund.

Homu

A trendy sushi place with nice outdoor terrace in a cracking location. The sushi isn’t groundbreaking but it certainly hits the spot. Truth be told though, we always come for the yaki udon noodles coz we’re suckers for those big old wormy worm style noods layered with goodies. Also whatever you do don’t miss the gyozas – some damn tasty shizzle.

Breakfast & Coffee, Food and Drink, Seville,

La Cacharreria

“ The Catch” as we at La Banda have fondly named it, is cute, quirky, homely. It is also very small. Run by a team of chicas, you can notice the womans touch. They’ve got speciality coffees, homemade smoothies and freshly baked cakes among many great breakfast items. Come and get settled in to the curious café, but bring some patience with you because their organization is poor at the best of times.

Bar El Comercio

Come and dive deep in to the world of Seville breakfasts. Slices of jamon fly through the air, olive oil rains down on a bed of toasted rolls and hungry breakfast munchers dodge slices of fresh Andaluz tomatoes as they sail across the bar. Old gruff waiters churn through breakfast orders with ease until the 12 o’clock bell chimes. Then. Silence…………….. a stream of coffee winds it’s way out of the door and Seville’s locals disperse, satisfied once more.

Mamarracha

Mamaracha is a La Banda fave. An all round delicious menu keeps us coming back and begging for more. Maybe it’s those paparracha creamy potatoes, maybe it’s that fine grilled steak, or the cheeky cheese cake that we definitely didn’t need…… whatever it is, Mamarracha you impress us! Trendy, classy, modern and great for small groups or couples. P.s. Love that plant wall.

Ovejas Negras

Ovejas Negras is a slice of Argentian concept-dining in the heart of Seville. Minimalist, artsy décor with high ceilings and vintage light bulbs set the scene. An addictive menu of goodies with a gourmet edge keeps your taste buds tingling. Vibes are slick, modern and trendy. You could as easily prop the bar up whilst you share a bottle of wine as you could settle in for evening of fine dining with your lover.

Food and Drink, Seville, Traditional,

Bar Alfalfa

Bar Alfafa is an uber charming corner of the road bar. Chef’s work up simple & rustic wonders from the world’s smallest kitchen. Crowds pack in to enjoy cheap beers, wine and tasty all day food! Great for stopping by at any time, whether its Andalucian breakfasts, healthier than normal tapas or evening drinks. Casual vibes all round.
