History of Tapas
There are many stories about the origins of the Tapas. Most consider that Andalusia can lay claim to being the birthplace of tapas. In this famous wine-making region, it became customary to serve wine in a glass covered by either a slice of bread with ham or cheese, or a saucer containing some other food. This “tapa,” a word which means a “cover” or “lid,” acted as a barrier to prevent flies or other impurities from contaminating the wine, and it was not long before the dish itself began to be known as a “tapa.” From this starting point, tapas spread throughout Spain, and beyond.....
Tapas dining is more than just eating....it’s an experience. With friends, family or your special someone you can enjoy a glass of wine & relax while sharing a variety of tapas.
”Tapas is not”
- Tapas is not a starter. If you start eating tapas, you finish eating tapas & you don't stop until you're full.
- Tapas is not a collection of small dishes brought out on a platter and eaten as a main course.
- Tapas is not a particular type of food. Anything can be tapas - paella, croquettes, ham & cheese on toast, truly anything served in a small portion.
