MoVida Bar de Tapas menu

The menus at MoVida are made up of a selection of various tapas and raciones, all of which are designed to share. A ‘tapa’ literally meaning ‘lid’, refers to the covering of bread that bartenders once placed on top of drinks in Spain to keep away the dust and flies. The meaning has since evolved to refer to hundreds of different bar snacks. A tapa is a single serve, a bit like a canapé. Raciones are plates to share amongst two or more people, or a larger dish for one. Your waiter will advise you of an appropriate number of dishes to order.
‘La plancha’ is a chrome plate grill that we use to sear our dishes.
