Icelandic Restaurant Organizes Tapas Evenings

Tapas are now available to the people of Reykjavik, Iceland, thanks to a new initiative from chefs Esteban Morales and Ernesto Moré. Tapas are currently on the menu at Bjórgarðurinn, a popular beer garden that serves beer from all over the world and some good food to go with it.

Tapas evenings aim to “showcase the diversity of regional Spanish food,” according to grapevine.is, and show the locals some of the highlights from Catalonia, Galicia and Valencia, among other regions. Customers can tuck into classics, from gazpacho to Spanish omelet, and even a selection of pintxos, paying homage to the Basque Country. The dishes are made for sharing and reasonably priced, and can be paired with a tinto de verano.

As tapas are considered a cornerstone of Spanish cuisine, the chefs aim to educate consumers about Spain’s extensive culinary repertoire, all against the backdrop of flamenco dancers and Spanish music.
