El Abanico tavern – Review
This Tavern is located next to Calleja de las Flores, onem if not the most, touristic street in Cordoba. El Abanico is a tavern where you can enjoy tapas and wines with no risk. This is not a tourist trap. That is for sure!
El Abanico is one of the best tapas options you will find to eat before or after your visit to The Great Mosque of Cordoba.
El Abanico stands out due to its original decoration. The ceiling is covered with elements that, shaped as carnations and hanging butterflies, make us think of flamenco fans. Flamenco culture is present in El Abanico, as well as Bullfighting culture, with prints of famous bullfighting events hang on its walls.
El Abanico can be described as a small, traditional Cordobés tavern. They specialize in homemade Andalusian-style tapas. The interior is slightly modernized, bright and youthful. The food is tasty and very reasonably priced. It’s the type of place friends go for a bite to eat before the game of the local soccer team.
Good examples of the most famous Cordovan dishes are prepared here with care. Salmorejo soup, oxtail or oxtail croquettes, or flamenquines are amongst the most obvious dishes served. They also prepare fried and grilled fish, and pay attention to its freshness and texture. Worth trying for sure.
Tapas taverns are not particularly well-respected for the quality of their desserts, but at El Abanico you could give a try to their chocolate specialties.
El Abanico is not a place to enjoy fine dining, but a friendly tavern with quality and popular cordovan dishes at a good value. It is an updated version of the traditional tavern or bar in Cordoba. A good place to enjoy local food and a friendly atmosphere.
