La Taberna Del Rey was close to our hotel down one of the countless winding streets in Seville. It is a really tiny place that had only been open 9 months but it belongs to a family with another place in town that has been around 9 years. It was very neat with a few small tables and several stools at a counter. They serve enough food to get a reasonable snack and have a huge array of beverages. The owner was behind the counter and he couldn’t have been friendlier. It is an incredibly cozy place with classical music in the background, low lights where all feel welcome.
Some large seasoned olives are at the bar for snacking and we also tried the Serranto sandwich which is pork, ham and green pepper on a fresh roll. The bun was nicely toasted and was a chewy, crisp roll with good texture. The ingredients blended well and were all slightly heated. It was a tasty snack, but mostly I’d come back just to chat with the owner – he was so nice.
