The Spanish restaurant Amalia Café, situated in the heart of Charlotte Amalia, St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands, has become the most dependable dining spots on St. Thomas and known for culinary excellence.
One of the world's most beloved food treats, tapas rank with mezza and dim sum as delicious tastes that can be enjoyed for their own sake or as a appetizing starter to a larger meal.
However, tapas represent a style of eating and a way of life that's entirely Spanish. They are always served quickly in small portions and are intended to be shared.
The Spanish verb 'tapar' means 'to cover', and originally a tapa was a slice of cured ham or chorizo served atop a glass of wine to encourage thirst, and thereby wine sales.
Today these highly flavorful little portions come in hundreds of varieties and vary by region and season. Enjoy Meson Amalia's tapas with Sangria or a good rioja.
