What began as a historical event with the visit of Alfonso XIII to Cádiz and the glass of Jerez that he drank with his entourage, has now become one of the classic nights out around the world.
According to the Royal Spanish Academy, tapa is defined as a “small portion of food that is served as an accompaniment to a drink.” In many municipalities, it is traditional to automatically receive the tapa with the accompanying drink, creating the custom of “tapear”.
Another of the acts this tradition carries with it is “going out for tapas”. This means touring various establishments in town to try the various tapas.
It usually takes place at the bar counter, standing and not sitting. But, little by little, this has been changed, and now there are bars with all sorts of tables or arrangements.
In many spaces, even the restaurant menu differs from the bar menu. The latter is usually a bit more informal, as is the case at Lobito de Mar, both in Madrid and Marbella. The food normally consists of cold dishes such as Russian salad or montaditos that are eaten in one or two bites in order to be quick and without the risk of staining, accompanied by a small beer, a soda or a glass of wine.
A gastronomic tradition initiated in Spain, which enchants everyone who visits us and allows them to taste the greatest number of dishes and flavors in the country.
