fancy a tapa?


Click on image to enlarge it!
So here it is an spectacular and tempting shop window from a bar in Plaza Mayor. As Oya from Istambul asked me many days ago, here you can see some typical "raciones" or "tapas"... let's try to find out how you named it in english: queso (cheese), boquerones en vinagre (vinegar anchovy), pulpo a la gallega (galician octopus, yummmy!), pimientos de Padrón (green pepper of Padrón) , morcilla (blood sausage), calamares rebozados (brolied calamari), and more... Oh, I feel really hungry right now! And don't forget to drink a beer (caña) or a glass of wine while! ;)

En fin, a buen entendedor pocas palabras bastan... Es un escaparate de un bar en plena Plaza Mayor donde muestran sus mejores platos... ¡Buen provecho!

Listening to Spin Doctors Have you ever seen the rain?

My favorite tapas (all vegetarian) are spinach with apples, raisins and pine nuts and patata bravas with aioli sauce. There's a restaurant called Jaleo in the Washington DC area that I went to often when I lived there. The owner opened a tapas themed Turkish/Greek place called Zaytinya and that soon became another love of mine. Oh, you've made me so hungry now!

It looks really very good. And I like the Spanish names. "pulpo a la gallega" ..souncs like a soft poem:) Wonderful

Isabella, Green peppers of Padrón, some of then are hot, some not. There's a quote about it... "Pimientos de Padrón, unos pican y otros non" (some of them are spicy some of them not, but you have to try) ;)

I think my favourite are boquerones en viangre (vinegar anchovy) y pulpo a la gallega (galician octopus)
I also love patatas alioli :)

Carraol, Coronita and Desperado are very popular beers here.

I'm happy you like the photo!

Que delicia!! Acabo de almorzar e igual esta foto me da hambre! Un amigo aqui en Omaha tiene un restaurante donde sirven paella y tapas. Se llama Espana! Hace rato que no como alli y a ya me diste ganas de regresar.

Unas tapas antes de disfrutar de una completa paella es un buen plan... Curioso nombre para un restaurante! ;)

Thank u guys for all your comments and suggestions, let's go to take some tapas to celebrate! :)

I can see by the amount of comments that everyone wants to come eat tapas with you. Wouldn't it be fun to meet all the daily and city photobloggers someday in one place? If we met in Madrid, we could gorge on yummy tapas! You're making me hungry with this photo. :-)

 
At 21/2/07 10:10, Blogger Keropok Man said...

yes, it would be so interesting if everyone orders different tapas and we take a bite from each. we get to taste everything there!

Yummy!!! I enlarged the photo to appreciate all the delicious looking food.

I think between all of us DP bloggers who commented here we'll be buying the whole shop window and then we can have a giant party and try all the tapas!
