The word tapas comes from the Spanish verb 'tapar' (which means to cover)
A tapa was meant as a free snack to be placed on top of a drink to keep flies away. Going out for tapas implies ordering a plate of food called a ración, if it is to be shared among a few people, or a 1/2 ración if alone or two. Also common in tapas bars and restaurants are bocadillos (or bocatas) which are sandwiches made with a bread roll or baguette.
