Inspired by many trips all over Spain, ¿CóMO? Taperia is a tapas bar and restaurant in Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant neighbourhood – a nod to the classic, centuries-old, standing room-only tapas bars in Barcelona’s Poble Sec or Madrid’s La Latina quarters with a cheeky, modern, fun twist.

Small tapas are served directly from the custom tapas cases imported from Barcelona. Classic dishes like tortilla española are made to order, while dishes like Spanish Octopus and the finest Torreznos come up hot from the open kitchen.

Alongside the tapas, the bar keeps a sharp focus on everything Spanish – premium gins with unique tonics, all the sherry we can get our hands on, and an always-changing wine list. Alongside Spanish beer on tap, we also feature a local craft beer, cocktails on tap, and Spanish vermut on tap!

Beverage pairings for $65 a person will be available, these will be regional pairings such as Vermut, Sherry, and wines from the south of Spain.

menu

Taste Our Travels Menu for 2 $130 for two; Add beverage pairing $50 per person. Como Taperia came from our deep love and passion for all things Spain, particularly, Barcelona and Madrid. Our latest travels in November took us to Madrid, then down south to Andalusia. The team spent a week eating and drinking in some of the best tapas bars in the region. From Sala de Despiece in Madrid, Bodegas Santa Cruz in Sevilla, the legendary El Faro in Cádiz, and La Tranca in Málaga. This very special menu is inspired by our favourite spots, and the dishes we enjoyed. Each Dish is for 2 and ment to be shared, just like in Spain!

                    We did the taste our travels prix fixe. The amount of food was quite small, so if you're hungry I wouldn't say this would be enough food for two people. If the price were lower it wouldn't really bother me, but this wasn't a good value for money by any means. By way of example, one of the courses was five tiny slices of cheese and a dollop of jelly the size of a penny - the cheese was tasty but that's certainly not a dish on its own, even by tapas standards (and I've been to Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Granada, etc.). The cheese and ham dishes were both good, but I'd have preferred (and expected with the price) to have a couple types of ham/cheese, especially because variety is what makes tapas so fun, and Spain has so many amazing charcuterie and cheese options. The other issue we had with the meal was there were way too many items that were unnecessarily fried. The bacalao, which is a traditional tapas in Spain, was sort of indistinguishable from a fried fish and chips that you can get anywhere - just a little saltier. The octopus absolutely should not have been fried - the batter was thick and unpleasant, and the octopus would have been way more delicious without it (we actually tried to peel it off). The Romesco sauce was pretty unbalanced (mostly just bitter and smoky), and the black garlic sauce was pretty good but couldn't overcome the rest of the dish in our opinion. The clams were solid but nothing special. The fried eggplant was actually a really interesting dish - it's sweet and and salty, which was unexpected, and I really enjoyed that. The pork al whisky had a delicious mustard sauce, but the pork itself was fine - it just didn't come close to other really great restaurants we've been trying and the price point made me think it would be high quality. 10/10 for the queso sorbeto dessert - that was fabulous. We can't comment on beverages as we didn't have any. The service was slower than you'd get in Europe, and the place was way too loud.
