Arguably the greatest thing the Spanish invented was siesta. Since we’re unable to integrate that practise into our Australian lifestyles (!!!), we’re glorifying in their second greatest invention: tapas.

It’s the Spanish art of grazing, and often includes small, share-worthy dishes of patatas bravas (fried potatoes), chorizo, meatballs, jamon (cured ham), tortillas de patatas (Spanish omelette), and olives. Do it right and order a beer, wine or sangria to complement your meal. Then polish it all off with a Spanish dessert churros, dipped in chocolate sauce.

Alternatively, you could be selfish and order something larger, like paella, for yourself. But with so many worthy tapas hot spots about, and the chance to sample its cultural fare, why would you?
