Tapas

What’s Barcelona without tapas and pintxos? Tapas bars abound here, and you can walk into virtually any place to grab a platter of tapas that is best washed down with good local beer. Pintxos, on the other hand, are bite-sized snacks served on top of a bread, for a more filling culinary experience.
