Seville – Gazuza

Easily one of my favourite places to eat GF food not only in Seville but anywhere.  Rarely busy which is a shame but that is down to location rather than the food.  What that means is you will be eating where the locals eat, always a nice touch.
 

Tucked away down a side-street about a 10 to 15 minute walk from the main bussle of Seville it doesn’t get a huge amount of walk-in traffic.  You can sit outside by a quiet road when the weather allows which seems to be most of the year in Seville.

Gazuza offers a huge tapas menu clearly detailing the dishes that are GF.  They also offer lactose free dishes and again these are clearly marked on the menu.   The staff here are lovely and will happily talk you through the menu as best they can even if you don’t speak Spanish and they don’t speak English.

Nice and simple and decent sized tapas

We had a couple of rounds of the following – patatas bravas with 3 different dips, one of which was so garlicky I felt like I was offending people from about 50 yds for 3 days, tastes great though.  Chickpea falafel with garlic mayonaise alongside a few dishes of the chicken in breadcrumbs which also comes with a garlic mayonaise to dip.  The battered courgette is also very nice and comes with salad.  If you eat red meat they also have mini-burgers which arrive pretty rare as standard so if you like your burger cooked through, best to let them know.  Most bars in Seville have at least one type of GF beer, Gazuza has Daura.

I had to stop myself ordering more of this....

I’ve eaten here I think six times in the past year and a half and have never had any problems.  The food is simple tapas and so far, risk-free from being glutened.  My wife who isn’t a celiac is always happy to eat here and doesn’t feel like she is missing out.  There are plenty of dishes on the menu that arent GF although she pretty much sticks with the GF dishes because they are just as good.

I’m not much of a photographer but hopefully this will improve over time,  I also feel a bit of a numpty taking pictures of food in a restaurant.
