Tapas usually include items like croquettes, olives, meatballs, chorizo, octopus, and salt cod. Explaining Spanish cuisine is a bit complicated, as there are more than a dozen regions each with a different cuisine. Although this may be the case, it is fairly common throughout Spain to find tapas, or small plates meant for sharing. As you can tell, the cuisine relies heavily on coastal and regional ingredients in order to portray its culture through food. Tapas are usually consumed with some sort of alcoholic drink, beer or wine being the main choices. This experience leads to a communal sense of dining, making for a fun atmosphere to spend with friends and family.
