How do you know if the tapas are authentic and going to be good BEFORE you even go in? Look at the floor. It's counter intuitive to our Western sensibilities, but if the floor is littered with lots of paper napkins, that's a sure sign that you've got a good tapas place on your hands that is enjoyed by locals. They tend to throw their paper napkins on the floor as they finish with them. The bar staff is too busy serving out their popular tapas to keep up with the napkin litter, so it accumulates a bit during the busy times. An immaculate floor might look good from the outside, but it means the staff has too much time on their hands. I learned this from Spaniards when I went to school in Salamanca. report a problem
