Juicy olives, garlic shrimp hot off the grill, a tasty piece of manchego cheese… these are just some of the classic dishes in the famous Spanish tapas tradition. Connoisseurs can take a tapeo in Barcelona, an evening tour past various excellent tapas bars. The best places are the old, dark bars where smoked hams hang from the ceiling.
At around 21:00, the tapas bars in Barcelona start to fill up with locals who come to meet neighbours, family and friends. Time is not of the essence here, and it’s a great feeling to experience that in reality. With a glass of white wine in hand, choose your tapas selection – from simple dishes to miniature works of art on a plate. Try some patatas bravas, bread with allioli, or spicy meat balls. Too difficult to choose? Ask the waiters or bartenders for the best and freshest dishes on the menu.
