…the prodigal returns

Back where we came from, reluctant returnees.

Fancy a bite to eat in Seville? Call Shawn!


I never, ever advertise in my blogs. Not for my own businesses (lujos.co.uk, yunqueragold.com) or others. Oops, now I’ve gone and dunnit (sic) – I’ve advertised!

Do you like food and wine? Do you live in Andalucia? Are you planning a trip to Andalucia? Well, if you fit into any of those categories, I just have to tell you about the business of a friend of mine, Shawn Hennessey.

She is known as the “Queen of tapas” for good reason. She has lived in Seviila for over 20 years, and knows everything about the great little foodie hot spots in the city. Sure, you can ‘go independent’ and meander down the alleyways of Sevilla, until you spot a likely-looking restaurant. In fact, you probably won’t go too far wrong doing this, as the food in Andalucia is mostly really good.

Thanks for the photo, Shawn!

But there are soooo many interesting barrios (neighbourhoods) in Sevilla, each with great places to eat! So it would be so much easier to take advice from an expert, and to try several places over the course of an evening (or afternoon).

She offers loads of choices, too. Care to try the latest food trends? Shawn can arrange it. Prefer traditional food? She can do that, too. She can also add in trips to the great food market in Sevilla, or include a stirring flamenco show. Her knowledge of the city, and her enthusiasm in sharing, is truly awesome.

So talk to her, and tell her what rocks your boat – she will give you an experience to remember! Check her reviews on TripAdvisor, too. 

(Note to readers: these comments were not solicited by Shawn. I just felt inspired to write about her today!)
