Two weeks of tasty tapas and drinks at special prices throughout the neighbourhood of Sant Antoni
Tapantoni, the tapas route through the Barcelona neighbourhood of Sant Antoni, is back for its autumn edition. Tapear is the Spanish verb for having some tapas. The tapa is an appetiser (not a snack, not quite a meal, although it can become one) that involves ordering a parade of little dishes to share over a drink, making it a very social think to do while in Barcelona.
Two times a year it is Tapantoni time
Tapantoni takes place during three weeks in spring and autumn and started out as a gastronomic initiative to suit every budget. In this sixth edition of Tapantoni 39 establishments invite you into their world of tapas offering a tapa and a drink for only €2.50, or, a special Tapantoni menu priced at €25. A word of advice though. At the start of your Tapantoni first decide what kind of role tapas are going to play on your menu. Some tapas can be very delicious and you can easily get carried away eating too many. Are you going to tapear for a pre-dinner drink, eat no more than three tapas. If the tapas are going to replace dinner at least five or six tapas are needed, or ask for bigger portions.
Besides eating, Tapantoni also invites you to take a walk through the San Antonio neighbourhood. I can assure you that it will be interesting experience as Sant Antoni often slips under the tourist radar, despite the fact that for the Barcelonese Sant Antoni is home to some of most popular local eating establishments. Prepare yourself for both hole-in-the-wall places, as well as more chic restaurants in the neighbourhood.
