- The maximum number of persons in a tapas tour is six. More it´s too much.
- Tapas should be taken standing at the bar top.
- Don’t eat more than two tapas at any one place. The idea is to eat a little and move on to the next bar.
- Practice what the Sevillians call “convidá” (convidada means invitation)… whereby everybody pays for a round.
- When you go for tapas you shouldn’t have unpleasant conversations. Go for tapas is a way to having fun.
- Learn to combine the right tapas and try to each of each group of foods. Try with vegetables, meats and fish.
- If you’re not sure what something is, just ask. The Spaniards take great pride in the creativity of their tapas, and will be happy to share it with you.
- Make it clear if it’s a “tapa” you’ve order (mini portion) or a “ración” (a meal sized serving) or you’ll end up paying more than you expected.
- The traditional drink with the tapa is beer or wine. All around Spain you will have nice wines (ask the waiter). Is a good opportunity to try different types of wine, one with each tapa.
And myself experience 😉
