Before taking your first bite, let’s dive back into the origins of tapas! Originally, tapas were a free but small portion of food which was usually served with any drink ordered, as a cover for these drinks. Actually, “tapa” in Spanish can be translated by “cover” or “lid” in English. This makes sense because of the numerous rumors about the origins of tapas: rumors say that bartenders used to cover customers’ drinks with these little pieces of food (like bread for example). So they would put tapas on the top of the drink in order to protect the drinks from the flies flying around, from the sand, or whatever, and then, over time, it became a habit. Some rumors also say that tapas were used to help mask the taste of bad wine, so bartenders started serving cheese tapas with cheap wine. Nowadays, tapas have greatly evolved!

They use pretty old recipes as well as new ones created by them for more elaborated tapas because they like to experiment with food and also they enjoy surprising their customers.
