A tapa, in Spanish cuisine , is an appetiser or snack that is served hot or cold. Tapas have evolved into sophisticated entres in selected bars and restaurants. The word "tapas" is derived from the Spanish/Portuguese verb tapar, "to cover". The original tapas were thin slices of bread or meat which drinkers in Andalusian taverns used to cover their glasses between sips. This was a practical measure to prevent fruit flies from hovering over the sweet sherry.
The Tast Club (tast.com) i👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼 Is the best tapas restaurant in the old town. It is not a cheap place to eat but the tapas here have taken another culinary dimension ! Each Tapas is presented like a piece of art and tastes divine. The restaurant is also beautifully decorated.
Another tapas restaurant worth visiting is La iBodeguilla. It has a friendly,relaxed atmosphere and it's full of locals. This place serves the best ham croquettes I have ever tasted.
