All Cuban menus come with a pinch of flavor of Africa, France and the Caribbean but, most importantly, they are all about sharing good times. And that’s where our Fusion Tapas comes in. In Spain the tapas style of serving was designed to encourage conversation and allow people to focus on the fiesta as well as the food. And as Cuban's you know we are all Party and Conversation Queens and Kings. So here is some facts (or myths) about the small plates. Best read over some Ropa Vieja Tacos, Empanadas and Chorizo y Garbanzo (just sayin’).
The word “tapas” is derived from the Spanish verb Tapar, meaning “to cover”. This is probably because the original tapas were slices of bread or meat which sherry drinkers in Andalusia taverns used to cover their glasses between sips to prevent fruit flies getting in.
In traditional Spanish tapas bars where appetizers and would be consumed standing up, the mini tapas plates were placed on top of drinks, making it easier to hold as you moved about.
Another tapas legend surrounds Felipe III, King of Spain from 1598 to 1621. Such was the drunken rowdiness of soldiers and sailors at the time that he passed a law stating that, when anyone purchased a drink, the bartender should place a small plate of food on top as a lid. The idea being that the food would slow the effects of alcohol and stop people getting so drunk. Good thinking Felipe, you LAD.
In Spain, dinner is usually served pretty late, between 9 and 11pm. Which means people had a long time between finishing work and eating a full meal. So, of course, they would spend it constructively: Barhopping. That’s why Spanish bars would always provide small tapas dishes to keep their customers going, without filling them up.
