Pata Negra in Nedlands is an experience, especially if you are brave enough to let the chef choose your dishes for you.

The picture in the areticle below represents what would be referred to as Pinchos.. regional to basque contry (im guessing san sebastian or pamplona)

Pinchos are typically served with a skewer in the item, 'pinching" the food to eat.. U will usual always pay for pinchos separately. Tapas on the other hand came about after the King of Spain noted the benefit of a small snack/meal when drinking (better health, sex, social behaviour etc) and enacted a law that a small accompaniment should be served with the Cerveza, Vino and Sangria (at no additional cost to the patron)....The lines have become blurred over the years,. If your thinking of tackling a tapas night out, it should start with drinks and then something to eat from the selection available (be it pinchos or tapas) I personally prefer pinchos for the flavour combinations and variety..

If your after awesome small portions of good foor - Andalus and Pata Negra, no different from sharing entrees etc at another restaurant..

For a night out, start with the refrescos, (free tapas if your in catalan region, a long way away) and then graze on a colourful selection of pinchos throughout the evening (Leederville) - helps if you know soeone that has been to spain to help make sense of it as thy dont displaty their pinchos like the do in the north!
