Barcelona Spain – Tapas at Txapela

The Spaniards know how to eat. Tapas, tapas, and more tapas. Nothing is better than going out and sampling these bite size morsels and washing them down with a cold Spanish beer or a sparkling Spanish cava.
This was my second visit to Barcelona and I had made it a point to head right to Txapela for Spanish tapas. Txapela is a well known tapas bar and restaurant with 51 different tapas dishes on the menu.
The menu is a pictorial eye chart of every dish and it’s corresponding number. Ordering in English or Spanish is as easy as knowing how to count. I wanted to try all 51!
Txapela has indoor and outdoor seating but my preference is sitting at the bar. It’s a great way to experience the bar and meet people from all over Spain and the rest of the world.
