For tapas in Frankfurt, it doesn’t get better than La Trinca. This Spanish restaurant has locations both on Schweizerstrasse and in the Kleinmarkthalle, and is always good for a small dinner party. The hot and cold varieties of tapas are perfect for sharing, so bring a friend or make it a date!
My personal favorite: the tortilla de espinacas y chistorra, a potato-spinach omelette served with red sauce for a spicy twist. Second-favorite: the pinchitos de pollo, grilled chicken drizzled with a rich cherry sauce. If I’m feeling extremely decadent, I’ll go for the datiles con jamón (dates wrapped in bacon) for a bit of heaven on earth. Most tapas cost between € 3 – 6, and if you’re hungry and eating with one other person, plan on ordering at least 3-4 plates to share.
La Trinca offers larger main meals as well, but half the fun of a tapas restaurant is to go for a bunch of smaller dishes, mix it up, and share the fun! Make sure to order a glass of red from the Spanish wine selection to sip with your dishes…¡buen provecho!
