Brisbane, born and bred.

Tapas is one of those styles of eating that I can really get behind: it has turned snacking into an art form and a legitimate meal choice. The concept of the single dinner plate is non-existent in the indulgent and delicious world of tapas. Instead, dinner is transformed into a steady stream of plates carrying such delights as patatas bravas (spicy fried potatoes), empanadas (which I have heard described as bread pies hello carbs) and croquettes (a cylindrical fried roll containing any number of mouth-watering fillings).

So, the question that remains is where in Brisbane can we stuff ourselves with these things?

I recently ate at Ortiga, and while the food was amazing, it was quite expensive so not exactly the kind of place for regular tapas fulfilment. I am also a bit wary of Pintxo in New Farm (and not just because I have no idea how to pronounce their name); I have heard mixed reviews.

But there must be heaps of Spanish restaurants in Brisbane, so if you know of somewhere that is worth a try, leave a comment (or we can just follow the trail of drool).

Peasant at Barracks - a bit pricey but the best tapas I've had in Bris. Also, London Club at Teneriffe does pretty good tapas too.

Never been, but I hear Peasant at The Barracks is excellent, and then you can tie it in with a trip to the cinema!
