Am planning a week or so in Southern Spain in early October, can anyone help out with recommendations for fine food in Jejez de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa Maria, and/or Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Also seeking worthy vineyards (extra credit for notable Amontillado sherry).
Would also appreciate any hotel recs your can offer. Price IS an object - for the hotel anyway. Am willing to sell my cat to finance a good meal or two.
I went to Sanlucar a few years ago for a flamenco workshop and remember eating incredible tapas in a rather large bar on the main plaza. There were small very sweet shrimp that were boiled and are eaten whole. There are other larger shrimp that are incredible too. I ate here several times. You can get great young manzanilla anywhere in Sanlucar as well as in the bodegas. There is a cultural center near some old ruins and nearby (sorry no specifics) is a little cafe that serves huge meatballs (albondigas). Very, very good food overall.
