When it comes to Spain, everybody will say Tapas is a must try. So Mum and I did some research beforehand we found out that this Tapa Tapa Tapas Bar is quite popular and it was very near to the hotel we are staying at. Therefore we decided to go there and grab something to fill up our stomachs after a long flight from Hong Kong.

In Tapa Tapa, all the dishes are fairly reasonably priced. The prices range from 2 euros to 10 euros, while they also serve regular (R) size other than just Tapas (T) size for certain popular dishes. As we all know, Spanish People have their dinner comparably late in the Evening. Some restaurants open at 20:30 in the evening to serve dinner, but most of the time tapas bars open all day, especially the ones in central Barcelona. For Hong-Kongers like us, we went to Tapas bar at 6ish in the evening which finding seats was easypeacy.

As both of us were not really alcoholic, we ordered a regular glass of Sangria to share which costed us 5 euros. This glass is so huge, and to my surprise, it is very YUM! It tasted more like a mocktail and you may not even notice how amount of alcohol in it. You can go seriourly tipsy on that. Anyway it was of great value and we both enjoyed it very much.

Like the practices in many other European countries, they don't serve free water in the restuarants. If you want to order water, you normally have two choices: Agua con gas (frizzy water) or Agua sin gas/Agua Mineral (mineral bottled water without CO2). They serve Vichy Catalan frizzy water here which is about 1.25 euro for 250ml. Vichy Catalan Water is a renowned brand in Barcelona but I must say French Perrier or Italian S. Pellegrino is so much nicer because Vichy Catalan Water has a slight salty taste which after a while you will be feeling like drinking sea water that makes you even crave more beverage to drink.

Each of these Canapés cost 2 euros each to order, but for a combo like this one, it only costed us a little more that 8 euros. On the plate, they have  with Spanish Tortilla (the famous Spanish Potato Omelette), Brie and Truffle, Jamon Iberico (Spanish Iberico Ham), Russian Salad with Prawn, and Crab Salad.

My favourite one is the Brie and Truffle. Not only that I am obsessed with cheese, the brie was of great quality. It's rich but never too salty, with its smooth and indulging texture that melt on the tongue. The truffle essence was slightly vague but it was not disappointing at all.

The canap with the Iberico Ham was not bad neither. The meatly flavour was stronger Italian parma ham and it was very thinly sliced.

The Russian Salad tasted just like the ones from Pizza Hut but the one served here has its potato pieces mashed into mayo which I prefer as it was easier to eat.

The one crab salad was out of expectation since only artificial crab meat. But of course, what's more can you ask for at this price?

We also shared those Fish Fritters which costed around 4 euro, but it was no surprise at all. The fritters are served cold which is disappointing enough. There is no seasoning what so ever but there is no taste to the fish neither. I must admit that the ones you find Tai O are so much better than this. Don't Try.

(< 6 euros) were very delicious. At first I thought, how good can it be? I mean it's just battered squid rings, isn't it? Why is everyone all crazy about it? But It proved me wrong. The batter coating is very light and the squid was so much tenderer than I expected. It was slightly seasoned with salt but the flavour of the squid was outstanding.

The tapa size Paella was very cute. This was actually the first time I tasted proper Paella other than the ones with only chicken that you can get in Camden Town in London. Although the portion is very petite, they have several kinds of seafood in there including fish, prawns, squid and mussels, but no chorizos. The rice is slightly chewy than oriental long grain rice, and it is slightly crispy at the edge like the "Rice in Pots - BO CHAI FAN" we get in Hong Kong. For only around 5 euros, this is way above expectation.

Afterwards, I came here again in early september with other exchange students and we tried their croquettes. Croquetas de Jamon Iberico (Croquettes with Iberico Ham) and Croquetas de fromage (Croquettes with cheese) were both very tasty. Croquettes are like potatos balls with a creamy, mushy texture inside. The croquettes here are served pipping hot and it is a must try.
