The word 'tapas' is synonymous with Latin cuisine.
Latin tapas are usually deemed as a wide variety of small plates whether
delicious snacks, finger foods, appetizers, or just a small portion of a
special dish in Latin cuisine. Tapas have evolved through Latin history in
Harlem by incorporating ingredients and influences from many different cultures
and countries. Most of the Iberian Peninsula was invaded by the Romans, who
introduced the olive and irrigation methods. The invasion of the North African
Moors in the 8th century brought almonds, citrus fruits and fragrant spices.
The influence of their 700-year presence remains today, especially in
Andalusia. The discovery of the New World brought the introduction of tomatoes,
sweet and chili peppers, maize (corn) and potatoes to euro returning to the
Americas as tapas, Now’s days These were readily accepted in New York and
