Legend has it that Castilian King Alfonso the Tenth (circa late 13th century) had once been stricken with a serious illness which only allowed him to consume small portions of food with small amounts of wine. (Perhaps he just got too hungry between lunch and dinner.) The U.S. has adopted this cuisine through tapas restaurants, wine bars and some micro breweries, as opposed to Spain, where it’s usually served up in simple tapas bars. Popular dishes include many traditional Spanish delicacies that are worth trying (be very brave, now):

  • Albóndigas – your basic meatballs
  • Aceitunas – assorted olives (no meal is complete without them)
  • Bacalao – salt cod, breaded and fried or stewed in tomato sauce
  • Boquerones – anchovies, marinated
