This centrally located Valencia eatery has been offering its special brand of Mediterranean-based fusion cuisine since the mid ‘90s, to the delight of the local and tourist crowd who return time and time again to satisfy their cravings. The food is creative and fun with mouth-watering combinations of flavours, which sits comfortably alongside good prices and a buzzing, laidback ambience. It’s also super-modern, with detailed information on allergens for those with food intolerance as well as a real focus on healthy produce.
At the helm of it all is Steve Anderson, an Anglo-Burmese native who has been living in Valencia since 1991. His background has significantly influenced the cuisine with a distinct Asian theme at the heart of the menu along side typical Valencia flourishes.
The suquet de peix, a fish and seafood stew traditionally eaten by local fishermen, has proved to be one of the most popular dishes. The innovative cooking style is demonstrated with the traditional Vietnamese dish of pho – a broth with chicken (or beef) and rice noodles, which the restaurant serves with Iberian ham to create a surprisingly delicious fusion dish. The tasting menu has been named as one the top 10 in Valencia and offers the best of all worlds. Burmese-style suckling pig sits alongside Valencia oysters with gin fizz, all washed down with four or five accompanying wines.
Alternatively you can peruse the tapas menu where dishes focus on the traditional, local and seasonal fare such as broiled mussels with yuzu mayonnaise or a range of rice options created using Valencia’s famous rice crop. The a la carte menu also has an equally imaginative range of fusion dishes.
Seu Xerea boasts a great location right in the centre of the city. It also features an outdoor terrace that is a lovely place to dine and soak up the surroundings in the warmer months.
