Tapas Time!

In Spain, the Tapeo is a nice way to prepare yourself for lunch or dinner.

While many tapas bars and restaurants in the tourist areas of Spain will serve tapas throughout the day, there are many places which will have tapas on the counter only at particular hours, which will typically be from twelve to two in the afternoon, and between five and ten in the evening.

Tapas l'Escala (Catalunya)

l'Escala is an old fishing harbour at the northern edge of the Bay of Roses, at the Costa Brava, rather close to the big campgrounds of Sant Pere Pescador.

It is one of those places of which the touristic value is hopelessly overestimated. At the seaside, which used to harbour an interesting fishing industry, there are now only souvenir shops sellings all kinds of knick knacks that one doesn't need, and a bunch of restaurants which mostly have hamburgers and bratwurst on the menu, and all that crowded by people interested in things one doesn't need and who came to Spain to eat hamburgers and bratwurst...

You get the picture? A place you actually might try to avoid...

However, if you have been dragged into this place by your travelling companions, no need for despair, there is hope! The thing is that the inside of the village of l'Escala is populated by real people, ordinary Spaniards, who like to dance the Sardana, and who like to go for a drink in the local watering hole. With a nice little tapa, of course!

If you are looking for tapas bars or restaurants in l'Escala, we can report as follows:

El Yate, c/ La Torre 59, (972) 77 49 93

Anthea About Tapas in Vigo

"If you ever make it to Vigo, you must visit a bar called La Porchaba (it gets fairly frequent mention in my AVJ blog) on Calle Rosalia de Castro. I think it's run by Basques and it certainly has a Basque style range of tapas. If you go at the right time of the evening you get free ones as well.

In fact many bars around here give free tapas with the evening drink, a custom that seems to have died out on many parts of Spain. There's a very friendly bar round the corner from the chess club where my husband goes to get thrashed by the local chess wizard. On many an evening we stop for a beer on the way home and receive such copious tapas that we don't need any supper when we get in..."
