What are Tapas?
Tapas (not Tappas) is one of the most essential parts of the Spanish cuisine. The word Tapas derives from the verb tapar, which means to cover. Centuries ago, customers used to get small slices of meat or bread to cover their drinks to prevent flies from getting in the glass. The meat or bread was served to accompany the drinks, free of charge. Over time, these small plates became more elaborate and indispensable, as they also increased in price.
Tapas is not a specific meal or recipe. Instead, it refers to a way of eating. To put it simply, tapas means a small plate of something. There are endless variations of tapas, from simple olives to more fancy, intricate creations. Regardless of what it is, tapas is meant to be shared with loved ones.
While anything can be served as tapas food. Varieties of fried fish, Gambas al Pil Pil, Porra Antequerana, Ensalada Malagueña, Fritura Malagueña, and Pan con Tomate are among the popular tapas dishes.
However, traditional tapas dishes are very distinct from the modern recipes new restaurants serve as tapas. At the Malaga Food Tour, you will only taste the most authentic and traditional tapas dishes to get a sense of the history of Malagueñan cuisine.
