A Paraguayan and a Russian run one of the best tapas bars in the city. It sounds like a bad joke, but it is TRUE. However, it will all sound more plausible once we reveal their names and surnames. Ever Cubilla, former chef of the honored Espai Kru, and Olesya Kuznetsova, a former Hoffman trainee and Andalusia lover, a region where she grew up professionally. Ever and Olesya joined forces to honor their love for everything Andalusian, and the result is Señorito.
Ever Cubilla, former chef of Espai Kru, and Olesya Kuznetsova, a former Hoffman trainee and Andalusia lover, are in charge of Señorito
Located in Sant Antoni, Señorito recreates an Andalusian patio, geraniums included. Señorito is the perfect place to enjoy original recipes from the South made with top-class Andalusian raw materials. The authenticity of the menu is revealed in dishes such as Cadiz chicharrones, choco croquettes, Cordoba salmorejo (with quail egg and ham), goat’s eggs with the pisto and ham, and the always infallible potatoes aliñás.
At Señorito there is no shortage of sea fritters, such as the classy shrimp omelette or the colorful anchovies in lime juice. There’s also seafood, either grilled or boiled, as well as Sanlúcar prawns and the unusual canaíllas, which some love and other hate (we love them!).
The wine list includes mainly Jerez wines –fino, manzanilla, and palo cortado, to be tasted among tiles and forged iron chairs
The icing on the cake comes with molletes, the Andalusian pseudo sandwiches that so many joys has given us in recent years. There are of all kinds –classics such as Pringá (Andalusian stew) and chicharrones, to other more sophisticated ones like Iberian rib with whiskey sauce or bird with pepper and payoyo cheese – a real discovery you should try! Señorito also serves tapas of the day, including chanquetes and japutas. As for desserts, don’t leave without trying torrija with rice ice cream and candied egg. The wine list includes mainly Jerez wines –fino, manzanilla, and palo cortado, to be tasted among tiles and forged iron chairs.
The best thing is that the place still has more aces up its sleeve –British cocktails served at the back of the patio, a space señoritos would claim their own.
A meal at Señorito is between 20-25 €. Olé!
