Café Sevilla brings authentic Spanish culture to the San Diego food scene. With executive chef Paul Bauer cooking up new and exciting ways for his guests to truly enjoy Spanish food, its no wonder this place is always crowded. Regardless, Café Sevilla offers the tastiest dishes for each customer to feel as though they are eating in the heart of Spain.
Café Sevilla's extensive menu options are definitely worth trying. Some favorite dishes include many paella variations, like traditional valenciana with mussels, clams, calamari, shrimp, scallops, chicken and grilled sausage; or entrees like chicken soaked in brandy with dates, raisins and goat cheese, or a saffron infused sea bass. However, more diners are starting to enjoy tapas (small plates) instead of full dinner meals, with choices like dates wrapped in blue cheese, shrimp in a garlic-aioli sauce, or tuna tartare with avocado and mango with an orange tarragon sauce. If you’re more interested in other Spansh traditions, empanadas and brochetas are available as well. --Dana Kaufman
