DE TAPAS EXPERIENCE
Tapas originated in Andalucia, a Southern province of Spain. The word "Tapa" translates as "cover". Tapas traditionally may have been a complementary piece of sliced ham served on top of a glass of wine. Tapas can be as simple as a bowl of olives or a more hearty encounter, such as slices of Serrano ham.
The Tapa was born when, due to an illness, the Spanish King Alfonso 10th, the Wise, had to take small bites of food with some wine between meals. Once recovered, the King decreed that no wine was to be served in any of the inns in the land of Castile, unless accompanied by something to eat. This was a wise precaution to counteract the adverse effects of alcohol on those people who, through lack of money to buy a nourishing meal, drank alcohol on an empty stomach.
Our Tapas offers a wide variety of appetizers in keeping with this traditional Spanish cuisine. From cold foods such as mixed olives and cheese, to hot foods such as Chorizo. In Spain, tapas has evolved into a sophisticated cuisine. These tasty dishes are created so that you can choose to eat several variations as a meal.
