Celebrate the World Tapas Day!

The 2nd edition of the World Tapas Day is coming to Manila! Mark your calendar on the 16th of June and celebrate with us as it takes place simultaneously around the world in more than 20 countries.


Tapas are miniature culinary delights that are usually taken with beer, wine or cider. It can be served hot or cold, some are served on toast, in terrines, and many locals have their own “house specialties”. They are served in a wide variety of presentations, ranging from the most basic with a cocktail stick or to the most sophisticated presentations with several garnishes and sauces to give character. These include potato omelettes, Iberian ham on top of a bread, chorizo or sausages, black pudding, assorted smoked foods, cheeses, croquettes and other hundred varieties to choose from.

Eating tapas enables you to sample different selections of local dishes in each region of Spain. It is a way for everyone to experience Spanish culture and savor the charms of each of its cities.
