Hello, and warm greetings from Almeria, Spain!
Here in Andalusia tapas are not just a way to eat, but rather a way of life. For those of you who don't know how it works... here's the lowdown:
When you go into a tapas bar you order an alcoholic beverage (this is important because if you order a coke or something you have to pay full price for the tapa, however non-alcoholic beer counts). So let's say the beer you order costs 2 euros, but then for an extra .30 euro cents you get your choice of a delicious aperitif which is well worth it... So after a couple of beers, your mood is right and your belly is full.
Below is a picture of Casa Puga. This is by far one of the most traditional tapas bars in Almeria. It's famous all over the world and throughout Spain. If you're ever in the area, it's definitely worth the effort of the visit.
