Seville Tapas - Half Moon Bay

Earlier today, we had lunch at Seville Tapas in Half Moon Bay, California, about 30 minutes south of San Francisco.

I chose Seville Tapas after reading restaurant reviews on the Find Me Gluten Free app.

Gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, and vegan options are noted on their menu, which you can view here.

My husband ordered a sangria for me, but it was not as sweet and fruity as I like my sangria to be.  Keep in mind, I am not a huge fan of red wine or alcohol in general.

I started my meal with a small bowl of lentil soup with vegetables and Spanish chorizo sausage.  I ordered my soup with gluten free bread, which is $2.00 for each piece.  I enjoyed the lentil soup, but I would not have known there was chorizo in it if not for the menu.  I was hoping for more of a chorizo taste.

I ate my two rolls with my second dish, a small portion of shrimp sauteed in olive oil and garlic with guindilla pepper.

This dish tasted exactly like the spicy garlic shrimp small plate they serve at Spice Road Table in the Morocco Pavilion at Epcot.  They even look like they are served in the same bowl.  I loved the spicy kick of the shrimp, and my bread was amazing dipped in the olive oil and garlic the shrimp were sauteed in.

For dessert, I had a slice of flourless almond torte, which is gluten and dairy free.  The cake was moist, not overly sweet, and had that almond taste I so love.  I am not sure what was drizzled on the plate, but it tasted a little bit like maraschino cherries.

My gluten-eating family loved the empanadas and pepitos they ordered.  Pepitos are small sandwiches, and they can be made on gluten free bread.  My husband and daughters especially loved their Spanish Serrano ham pepitos with Manchego cheese and EVOO.

We would definitely eat at Seville Tapas again the next time we are in Half Moon Bay.
