The format was the same as last year. Each bar creates its own tapa which you can buy for 1 Euro. They are an absolute bargain as many of them are gastronomic delights. You can go out, eat three or four of them, and that is lunch or dinner. There is a competition between the bars and this years winner was called Solana in the port area of Ribadeo. It also has a fantstic restaurant.
The public can also enter a draw for a prize, but to qualify this year you needed to taste a least 25 tapas during the 8 days. We managed 35!!! Each bar gives you a stamp to verify that you have bought a tapa!!!
Last year, it was the last week in May. This year was from 30th April until 8th May. It would be worth coming for a holiday in Granero del burro during this week - it would save on the cooking!!
