What is Tapas?
Legend has it that tapas originated when King Alfonzo of Castille Spain visited a tavern in the windy coastal region of Spain. The bartender, knowing that the King had just recovered from an illness caused by a bug, thoughtfully covered the King’s glass of sherry with a piece of ham so that no bugs would get into it. The King, thinking it was a novel idea, continued to order his glass with the top (tapas) and decreed that all drinks in Castille be served in this manner. The Castille region expanded and the tapas tradition grew and has now landed in Laconia.
Tapas has evolved into an entire, and sometimes sophisticated, cuisine consisting of little plates of food with flavors from around the world. The style of dining encourages conversation amongst friends while enjoying and sharing a variety of palate pleasing dishes that everyone can enjoy.
