Vineria San Telmo, Seville

I love Spain! The weather, the country, the people and of course the foods! I share the love for the country with my better half, FF.  Although we do try to visit places and countries we haven't been to before, we don't really mind coming back to this country again and again.

Last December,  when weather in Germany drastically drops below zero, we found ourselves boarding the plane to Andalusia, the south of Spain, with the bitter cold of Germany hot on our heels. We fled hoping for a warm, sunny welcome.

Alas, we were met by strong gush of wind and pouring rain. For 3 days, the sun was swallowed by thick clouds,  only to sneak quick peek  before hiding  and getting us all drench up again in the unforgiving rain. It was depressing. 

So we stayed indoors, most of the time. Literally going in one tapas bar and restaurant to the other. Eating our way through the streets of Seville certainly lifted our drowning spirits. 

This particular restaurant made our stay in Seville enjoyable and forgot the sloppy weather . With thousands of competition in the city, this relatively new establishment  was able to garner a place among the solid rank of well visited places in Seville. The delicious foods, fabulous wines, cool ambiance and friendly staff made us come back here 4 nights in a row.  

  Vineria San Telmo gives classic  Andalusian dishes a modern and innovative twist. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals in this place. Here are just few of the treats they offer. 

Housemade Chicken Liver Pate with Tomatoe Jam and Melted Castuera Cheese with Caramelised Onions.

Homemade Foie Gras M Cuit with Vanilla Oil and Caramelised Peanuts.

Squid Ink Spagetti with Garlic, Pesto  and Grilled Scallops

Grilled Beef Carpacio Rolls filled with Brie and served with Mango Chutney and Candied Angel Hair squash

Argentinian Beef Fillet with Sweet Mustard Sauce

Roasted Leg of Lamb with Basil and Tarragon, served with Couscous

Grilled Foie Gras with Apple Compote

Crispy Prawn in Panco with Soy Mayonnaise  served with Zucchini

Stewed Oxtail in Crispy Filo Pastry. My favourite dish!

Pan Fried Octopus with Garlic and Onion

Salmon Tatami with Leeks

The wife of the owner of Vineria San Telmo is a pastry chef and owns her own bakeshop, so we were told. Her creations are displayed in a cart  beside the door for everyone to ogle . We were blown away the each of the sweet treat we've tried. 

The cloud of Meringues on top of the tangy Lemon  Pie is a delight to the palate. 
 Seriously addictive !

FF on the other hand, loved this apple pie served with ice cream.

The Cheesecake is not overly sweet and was served with berry sauce. So yummy!

Finally, one of the best flans I had. So silky, no eggy after taste and simply delicious!

If you happen to be in Seville and wants to try some delicious, modern day tapas, check this place out! You won't regret it.
