Cruo is the latest project of Cayetano Gómez, co-owner of the fabulous Puratasca (just around the corner from Cruo), and also of La Cayejera, Sevilla’s first ever food truck. It’s a tiny “vermutería”, created in homage to the typical vermouth bars of the early 20th century, a place to go for an aperitif before the main meal.
There are a number of different vermouths on offer, such as Miró (the vermú de la casa) Lustau, Yzaguirre and Ricard, as well as a selection of wines and sherries (great to find Gutiérrez Colosía amontillado) and Estrella Damm beer. The name derives from the fact that all the food is raw (“crudo” in Spanish, but pronounced “cruo” in Andaluz). We had some tasty gildas and an excellent sea bass & prawn ceviche that went very nicely with our vermouth. There is also a steak tartare on the short menu, along with oysters and a good selection of charcuterie.
