are Spain's legendary "little dishes". In Spain,
tapas bars serve as living rooms: places to eat, relax, share
the events of the day, meet friends, listen to music, have
a quiet drink, chat with the owner, make acquaintances. The
unhurried tasting and sipping, mixed with good conversation,
speaks of a pure appreciation of time and pleasure, one of
the quintessential characteristics of life in Spain.
the southern region of Andalusia, where tapas originated,
the most popular way to eat is "ir de tapeo," or
tapas-bar stroll. Most weekend nights groups of friends
make a meal of tapas by strolling from place to place and
sharing food. The tapeo is a movable party at which everyone
is welcome. It is as much about sociability as it is about
food and drink. The tapeo creates itself as it goes along:
conversations with new acquaintances, spontaneous meetings,
the unexpected appearance of other friends.
in the tapeo, in large cities and small villages alike, is
part of the Spanish saber vivir - knowing how to live.
