We've spent days labouring over the list of all the tapas on offer during Tapapiés 2014. Madrid's multicultural tapas route is back for another year full of gastronomic temptations that represent every continent on the planet. From Thai chicken to octopus carpaccio, including the traditional Spanish pickled anchovies, you'll find all these gastronomic delights and more for just €1 each, from October 16 to 26. Add a glass or small bottle of Estrella Damm for another euro, and once you've had your fill, get out into the squares and streets of Lavapiés to sing and dance along with the 60 free concerts organised for the occasion. Choosing from among 90 tapas hasn't been easy, but we finally narrowed it down and now present our favourites for you to be sure to sample.
