When you feel in the mood for a fiesta, only a tapas feast will do. Those moreish little morsels that make up a classic tapas spread might come in bite-sized servings, but they sure do pack a lot of punch. If you're looking to mix and match the flavours at your next mealtime, choose a traditional or new-take tapas joint and let your palate pick out the plates.
