Fiesta – Real Spanish Style 2

In Spain, the main courses always come in very big bowls or plates, like Paella (seafood with rice), Arròs Negre (squid sauce with rice), and boiled lamb chops. Two or three people can never finish one. If it doesn’t taste good, it will be a waste too. That is why I like Tapas much more!

Tapas means cover. Legend says originally it was a piece of bread covering a glass of sherry wine to avoid flies from falling into it. Later on, people add cheese, olive, tomato, or ham; and Tapas is created. When I had Spanish food back in Norway or Hong Kong or even Iceland, we liked to order a whole table of this kind of quick bites as main courses. Now, in Spain, I can really taste the real “Ir de Tapas”. Like bar hopping, we go from bar to bar, trying each one’s tapas, from around 4 or 5 in the afternoon up to 7 or 8 at night. There are fried mini-octopus, deep-fried squid-rings, cheese balls, hot shrimps, spicy sausages, beefball, chicken on a stick, omelets. Simple food with a portion size of dim sum or sushi. Each dish comes with a stick for paying bill easier. Each costs one Euro only, not bad at all.

We cherish the taste as well as the environment. When I try to post some pictures on line, I find out that I didn’t take any as I am too happy at that time. I am very sorry! But I do like Tapas, and very like “Ir de Tapas”.

    Believe it or not, when I was in Spain I was able to finish one by myself. 😉
    Luckily I did stay just one week, or now I won’t be 50 kilos anymore.. :))
