Tapas in Madrid

Going for tapas, one of Madrid's favorite gastronomic activities, consists of visiting bars and taverns tasting small portions of culinary specialties, hot or cold, accompanied by beer, wine, soft drinks or vermouth. The older sisters of tapas are the portions. They say that its origin is in a slice of bread that was placed on the glass of wine to cover it. In Madrid it is very common to have a tapas lunch or dinner in one of the many restaurants, bars or taverns in the city. Patatas bravas, Spanish omelette, garlic prawns, fried eggs or croquettes are some of the many tapas to savor. They can be taken throughout the city, but the most typical areas are around Plaza de Santa Ana, Plaza Mayor, Cava Baja and Cava Alta, and the Lavapiés neighborhood.
