As in all of Spain, dining hours are later in Seville – lunch, the day’s main meal, typically begins at 1:30 or 2:00pm. Afternoon tea breaks, around 5 are called merienda and are crucial for those traveling with kids, because dinner is typically composed more of drinks and tapas grazing than a real meal, and doesn’t begin until around 9pm. Seville claims to have invented tapas, and favorite orders include jamon Iberico, olives, meatballs, chorizo and small pieces of seafood, either grilled or lightly fried. The tapas experience can be intimidating for a non-local, but it shouldn’t be. Simply find a tapas bar that is full of locals. Stand at the bar and order a drink and a couple plates of tapa. Carry your drink and snacks to a table outside and sit and eat while listening to conversations around you, footsteps on the cobblestones and the day’s final church bells.
