Crispy Croquetas are a big favorite in Seville. You can find just about everything coated in the crispy outer shell. Croquetas de cola de toro, and Bull Tale Croquetes are as you can imagine something that can easily be characterized as uniquely Andalusian.

Croquettes of Andalusian Stew (Croquetas de Puchero) are another hit that combines two traditional recipes.
However, the best-sellers are definitely the crispy croquetas de jamón, croquettes of Spanish ham. Sevillanos swear on the croquettes of Ricardo’s Casa. This is a place with a history that starts in 1915 as a grocery store. In 1985 the place was transferred to the current owner Ricardo Núñez Dorado, with which the establishment was renamed Casa Ricardo, no longer a grocery store, entirely dedicated to wines and beverages. , and with a decided orientation towards what are the classic tapas, cold cuts, and cuisine of the Sevillian tradition.
