Tapas are a very important part of the Spanish cuisine. They come in small portions and all possible combinations: cold, warm and they satisfy all taste requirements.
El Teatro is a pure tapas bar like the ones you can find in Spain. Expect for the photos of the flamenco dancers and several landscapes from Spain projected on the wall: they’re beautiful photos but the whole concept looks a bit like brochure photos promoting tourism in Spain. It seems that a touch of clichés for tourists cannot be avoided, nevertheless it is not the most important in the end.
Like in all tapas bars, there is no menu, all you need to do is choose from the tapas available in the bar and write down the one you like on a piece of paper taken from the pile on the bar.
Although in Spain one simply needs to scream out the names of the tapas to the barman, this would presuppose knowledge of the Spanish language, which is not always the case in Germany. Therefore each tapas is numbered: all you need to do is write down the number. Fast and (German) efficient! The note needs to be handed to the waiter and your order will arrive at your table in a few minutes.
My favourite tapas – by far – are the zucchini flowers filled with goat cheese and the dates rolled with bacon: a masterpiece!
