A piece of Spain in Puerto Vallarta

Pincho & Tapas Puerto Vallarta

Pinchos, or tapas, are one of Spain´s greatest traditions. Although the origins are not too clear, a few theories can bring light to its creation.

It is said that upon King Alphonse XIII´s visit to the province of Cadiz, he stopped at an inn and asked for a glass of sherry. The bartender covered it with a slice of ham to prevent any sand from getting in. Both the King and his court asked for another sherry, this time with the tapa (or lid) of ham.

Another story goes that another Alphonse, King Alphonse X, passed a law by which all inn keepers in Castille should provide something to eat when serving wine to prevent any drunkenness.

Whereas tapas are served in the South of Spain and usually are larger portions, pinchos originate from the North, specially San Sebastian in the Basque Country, and can be served in a wide range of shapes and sizes.

Pincho & Olé tries to summarize in the best possible way the variety being served all over Spain.
