Socarrat Spanish Restaurant in NYC is proud to offer some of the best tapas in the city. Tapas is a Spanish term for an appetizer or snack of traditional Spanish dishes. In Spanish, the word “tapas” translates to “top,” which is why they are considered appetizers to be served at the beginning of a meal. Socarrat’s extensive offerings of tapas are the best in New York City.
Cheese is an integral part of Spanish gastronomy. It goes perfectly with tapas, on its own or on a crusted bread with some olive oil. Of course, our hearts melt for it in various dishes.
The Fallas de Valencia is a traditional fire festival and the most flamboyant celebration of Spain. Throughout the festival, there are citywide pyrotechnic displays starting at the beginning of March, although most of them occur from March 15 to 19.
Have you ever heard the Spanish word aperitivo? You can see it is close to the English word aperitive, so you can imagine it is somewhat related, but do you know the cultural difference behind that similar word?
As we know, exploring the gastronomy is a great way to know a culture. Looking at the popular expressions, proverbs and sayings in a culture is a great way to understand the mentality of its people.
