So what exactly is a Tapa?
In short, it is a snack. they are served both hot and cold and are available throughout all the regions of Spain.
Stories of old tell of beer glasses getting covered by a small plate in order to keep the flies out of the drink. Some bartenders offered a little tasty bite on top of this plate to keep their customers happy. Over time however the whole concept of a tapa has grown and while it continues to be a small snack, the humble tapa has evolved into a much more sophisticated & category of gourmet cuisine in some parts of Spain. Nowadays Tapas can be combined to make a full sharing meal and get the attention of real foodies.
