This year in Tenerife, a special World Tapas Day called Dia de la Tapa in Spanish takes place on June 15th, 2017 in El Sauzal.
In fact, this day of the Spanish mini food cuisine is to be honored worldwide on every third Thursday in June every year.
This has been introduced in 2017.
Spain is proud of its unique Tapas. It wanted the entire world to join its celebrations.
Reason being is also that more and more Spanish wines including those from Tenerife are exported all over the globe.
And having a Tapa is a must together with a wine from any part of Spain.
Tapas Routes have been traditions for many years. There, eating establishments volunteer to take part in a Tapas competition. Each bar, restaurant, bodega, Tasca, you name it, is free to take part with one small dish of Tenerife cuisine. It's to be valuated by the public. Tapa lovers can buy a voucher that entitles them to sample each and every Tapa during the concourse. The route happens during a given period off time which may be two weeks. Prices are usually about &euro 2,50 per Tapa.
Expect Taperias in New York and many international or Spanish restaurants to celebrate this special day. Look out for events and the like wherever, you are.
