By Chef H. Delgado

April 6, 2021

Hi Everyone!

This week most Spanish chefs are backing to work. Many of the bars and restaurants that closed due to the pandemic restrictions are reopening. It seems that little by little, we are returning to normality.

Bar "El Pimpi"

The first visitors of the year have arrived with a negative PCR to enjoy their holidays in this beautiful land in southern Spain.

But we must not relax; we must comply with covid measures to avoid a possible new wave of infections. I hope we will travel again to discover other cultures and gastronomies of the world.

For all these reason and in support of the Spanish hospitality industry's reactivation, I have selected the most emblematic tapas bars in Andalusia . And of course, I also bring you their most representative Tapas dish.

This selection is a mix of first-person dining experiences, entrepreneurial friends who are doing very well, and some information that I have collected from the internet.
