My Top Tapas

I´ve been asked several times lately what my favourite tapas is I say, yes I know it´s shallow and evasive, but I don´t have one particular favourite. So I thought it might be fun to do a post on my favourites, giving me time to think, which is another reason for the evasiveness, being put on the spot like that makes me panic.

Panic goes something like - Tapas? Favourite? Do I have one? Which is it? What´s it called? Is it that stuffed red one? Or that one that´s thicker than Gazpacho and orangey-er, whatever its name? No it´s that fried little something or other, isn´t it?

So denying a favourite helps me breathe and think. This post´ll probably take me days!

Of course these are from the commonly found tapas, not the posh or local or leftover variety.
