Spain Local Customs: 295 reviews and 268 photos
Tapas- a light appetizer type of meal served in half or full rations. Usually enjoyed for dinner or a quick bite. Often served with bread. Many tapas are meant to be placed on top of the bread. Traditionally, tapas were free with a drink and served (literally) on top of the drink. Today, very few places remain that serve tapas for free. Tapas may be fish, pork, cheese, olives, sausage, or seafood. It is wise to become familiar with the Spanish names of certain foods- otherwise you'll do what I did and order achovies when you thought it was something else ;-)
Sangria- a sweet punch made by combining wine, juice, and fruit. Usually served by the liter and meant for more than one.
