‘Tapas’ are a popular tradition. Tapas are appetizers that can be taken whilst drinking beer or wine. Tapas means sociability, friends and family. The Spanish in general won't drink without eating something as well. Often, ‘to go for tapas’ is the perfect excuse to meet friends.
Spanish tapas is at the very heart of Spanish lifestyle and culture. Everywhere you go in Spain you will find lively and noisy bars serving small plates of superb flavours and local delicacies.
In some tapas bars, everything is served on toasted bread. In others, everything is served pincho or on a toothpick; the empty toothpicks are used to tally the bill.
Wherever you live, Spanish tapas will give you a tasty little mouthful of the real Spain. This week Spanish tapas can bring a little Spanish sunshine into our supper club!
