Tapas in Spain

I love appetizers. As a child every once in a while we would have "horse doovers". We were just so cosmopolitan.

In Spain it is typically difficult to find a restaurant open before about 8pm. It isn't difficult to find an appetizer to help tide you over or to complete the meal. Just find a tapas bar and dig in. No not a topless bar! Get your mind out of the gutter!
This particular place charges you by the toothpick. You select what you want and pull it's toothpick but save them. At 2 euro a pick each be selective it can add up.
These mushrooms were absolutely wonderful. A much higher class place where each selection came from a menu. The waiter delivered them to the table.
These squid were also so good cooked to perfection. A far cry from my child hood memories of a can of smoked oysters and sardines. A few club crackers. Sliced cheese, summer sausage, and olives were part of that fare. All the same those are great memories.
