COME SHARE SOME TAPAS

After another long lunch in Southern Spain we decided to bring a taste of Spain to the North Coast. We have chosen some of our favourite Spanish dishes to offer a taste of sunshine. Spanish Tapas had a humble beginning as barmen used to place a piece of bread on the wine glass to keep it cool and fresh.  Today it is one of the most inventive ways to enjoy a selection of food. We have chosen a selection to suit all tastes. 
 

Join us for a glass of wine and a tapa and bring a little sunshine to your day.

History of Tapas


History of Tapas


A BRIEF HISTORY OF TAPAS

The word Tapa means Lid in Spanish, it is thought that this originally referred to a piece of bread that was placed on top of a glass of sherry to keep the flies away.
This was often served with a slice of cheese or ham and so the tradition began.Today the range of Tapas dishes are astounding and reflects the diversity of ingredients in Spain. At Ocho we source most of our raw ingredients locally but some ingredients such as Morcilla, Jamon Serrano and Padron Peppers can only be sourced in southern Spain and Sobrasada which is from Mallorca.

 WHAT ARE TAPAS?

In select bars in Spain, tapas have evolved into an entire, and sometimes sophisticated cuisine. Patrons of tapas can order many different tapas and combine them to make a full meal, we recommend 3 or 4 per person. The dishes will not arrive to the table at the same time to give you time to share, talk and relax. If you would like your Tapas to arrive at the same time please advise us and we will be glad to accommodate you.
