Tapas en el globo - Bilbao

Tapas are as most foodies know small bites or dishes served typically at the bar, to snack between drinks and conversation. In the northern part of spain pintxos (pinchos) and tapas have evolved from the simpe skewer and meat on bread to "tapas compuestas" where the tapa takes on a culinary mantle, elaborated for multiple levels of taste and texture. These are the types of tapas popular in the middle of the old section of Bilbao at El Globo
the tapas are elaborate, tasty and avantgarde with the likes of mousse de pescado con algas (fish mouse covered in algae)

mousse de pescado con algas


morcilla, queso y mariscos

salmon and anchovies

salmon y boquerones

and some more basic ham and bread...

jamon, y pan con jamon

melted cheese

queso fundido

Either way the choices where awesome, avantgarde and very tasty
