Dnoll is in Spain News

Nothing rivals Rome itself, but if any city in the world were to stake a claim as the mini-Rome, Mérida would be the leading candidate, possibly a runaway winner, with so many Roman gems packed in such a small area. Mérida is a city with only 59,000 inhabitants, located in the southwestern province of Extremadura, but its history dates back to when it was named Augusta Emerita and an important part of the vast Roman empire. That importance can be seen all over the city today.

Sevilla is a city made for your five senses. It smells like heaven here when the orange trees are in bloom, the sights are as good as they are in any city in the world, the cacophony of people enjoying their night out is as much a part of the city scene as anything, and the flavors at the tapas bars and restaurants around town are delectable. There are places in the city where all those four senses can be satisfied at once and that are at the city’s amazing markets. But what about touch? Nope, not here. You can’t touch anything, the vendors do it all for you. But don’t worry. They know what they’re doing. Let me take you through three of the city’s best places to shop for food.

When we truly discover something we didn’t know existed or is such a great find as to not be missed, I’m writing about it as a discovery of the week. I used to do this every week, but since we know Sevilla quite well, I haven’t really gotten the chance. That changed when we visited La Vermutera de Sevilla.

I’ll admit that I was a bit taken aback by the amount of tourists that descend upon Málaga. And I’ll freely concede that I really wasn’t ready for the ridiculous amount of British tourists and expats there. It took a bit of getting used to since our lives in Sevilla stay amazingly tourist free, notable exceptions not withstanding. But after shirking the tourist masses (almost) and eating some truly exceptional food, we made our way to Málaga’s most famous attraction, the Alcazaba, on our second day there.

It’s time for some old favorites. Yep, this edition of the tapas chronicles is going to give us a fresh take on some places that we really enjoyed in our time in Sevilla back in 2014. I’m pleased to report that the quality is still very high at these three places.

The city of Sevilla is full of world class tourist attractions. If you come and visit for a long weekend or spend a small chunk of your tour of Spain here, you have to cram a lot of amazing things into a short period of time. Luckily, we’re not in that predicament. We’re here for a while, so we’ve got time. And even though we’ve spent a lot of time here in the past and seen all the major attractions at least once, we’re taking them in again. We’re even hitting up some that we somehow never got a chance to see last time. And what’s even better is that we’re going to the majority of them for free.

Meet the Chef: Watson Taylor and Jordan Smith of Atomic Tacos - Flathead Beacon
But one can always stray a bit further from the traditional with something like the chili lime-roasted cauliflower tacos, or even float away on a carnivore’s daydream with a plate of Korean barbecue tacos loaded with crispy, and yet still succulent cuts of pork belly in a sweet, savory sauce and topped with apple cabbage slaw. Beef and lamb gyros served on naan are also offered by the taco truck. There’s only one quesadilla option but it’s a serious one—the birria quesadilla. The slow-braised beef has an almost pot-roast-like flavor and tenderness, and before it’s melted into a quesadilla, Taylor adds cilantro, onion, salsa Roja and cheese to the equation. It comes with a side of rich beef broth, known as beef consommé, for dipping.
