Bodeguita Romero

Updated March 2017

bodeguita_romeroBodeguita Romero is famous for its award-winning pringá montaditos – the best in Sevilla (and according to FoodieHub, in the world). Pringá is typically a mixture of pork, chorizo and black pudding, served on bread as a sort of paté or paste in most other tapas bars. But here it’s very meaty and chunky; just tender slow-cooked pork and black pudding (with a dollop of manteca) in a perfectly toasted hot bun – pure porky heaven. Other favourites include the melt-in-your-mouth carrillada (pig cheeks), grilled salt cod, and the house marinated potatoes, prepared daily by Pedro Romero himself. And for a bar that is so well-known for its meat dishes, it also has a great selection of vegetarian options, including their fabulous cuminy spinach with garbanzos and braised artichokes. Be sure to also check the daily specials board. The owners and staff here are friendly and welcoming and even when the place is heaving (which is often) the service is fast and efficient.

Check out the wine list for a terrific selection of wines by the glass, including some top sherries – Alejandro Romero has created a very interesting sherry list, which you can see below. There’s a small chalkboard on the bar with weekly wine recommendations, and Alejandro is always happy to suggest pairings.

But what makes Bodeguita Romero so especially special is how you feel so at home – I’ve been coming here for over 20 years so the Romeros and their staff are like family to me (this also explains why SO many photos…). Going strong for close to 80 years now, and into its third generation, Pedro and Angela still run the show here along with their son Alejandro, and you can feel the heart they put into it. Great home-style cooking, lovingly prepared from old family recipes, professionally presented, all in a cosy family-style atmosphere where you get superb value for money. One of the very best traditional tapas bars in town.

  1. A La Atencion Del Sr. Pedro Romero

    Favor de dejar ese mensaje para Pedro. Hace mucho tiempo que la ultima vez estuve en Sevilla. Viajaba a menudo a Seville y siempre comia a su resturante. Ademas soy un amigo de Pedro de Todopan. Agradeceia si puedes mandarme su direcion completa de su returante y a la vez mandarme mis mejores recuerdos a Pedro y a Fermin. Si es posible, me gustaria obtener su direccion de e-mail.

    Te conoci hace mucho tiempo cuando trabajaba con Rich Products Corp. de Buffalo de Nueva York.

    Espero oirte pronto.


    Un abrazo,

  2. I’ve been here twice now and absolutely love the place. Everything you suggested I’ve tried and I especially love the Pringa, the trumpets and the house potatoes. Yum yum yum. Thanks so much for letting us in on this little gem ; )
