A tapa, the miniature cuisine from Spain, is a finger food eaten between the meals. In Spanish, tapa means “cover or appetizer”. The Real Academia Española de la Lengua defines a tapa as “any portion of solid food able to accompany a drink”. You can choose from four types of tapas: cold, fried, sauce based and warm. The fried tapas, such as boquerones, calamaries, croquets, fritters, sausages and torreznos, are the most popular.

Location doesn’t help and some feel they can tick the Spain box with Barcelona, considered more in tune with the international music “vibe”. To an extent true, but these days the Spanish-European link is stretching further than the Catalan capital and Madrid is mixing more European live music into its already well developed and certainly well appreciated local and national scene.
