Spanish Tapas, is the idea of having 3-5 smaller dishes rather than one big meal. Every time I’ve been to a tapas restaurant (not that I’ve been to that many…yet) I’ve left feeling full having enjoyed a variety of flavours. Being able to mix and match your dishes gives you so many options but if you’re new to tapas, the menu can be overwhelming.
Here’s what I’d recommend for your first tapas meal; patatas bravas – fried potato squares in a spicy tomato sauce are a safe bet, olives, chorizo, paella – there’ll typically be a few to pick from, or the chef’s special, then perhaps some chicken or prawns too. Jamón croquettes are wonderful breadcrumb coated parcels filled with ham and cheese, I’d highly recommend them too, if you’re maybe not a fan of prawns or olives and want an extra dish.
Are you a fan of Spanish food? Let me know what you’d typically order if you’re having tapas or any recipes you’d recommend trying?
