Pass from one bar in Madrid to another, order in each of them a beer or a glass of wine and try the traditional snack tapas.
Tapas as a snack with beer or wine is popular in Madrid for a relatively long time. Long time ago, a snack was a slice of jamon, which, like a lid, was covered a drink, to protect it from flies. Now, tapas became more refined and more like a dish from a wide variety of appetizers, including stew, ham, grilled pork, salads and seafood.
In Madrid there is a tradition - in the evening go to the city's bars, drinking one glass there, try the traditional for this bar tapas, and move on to the next bar.
In some bars to drink necessarily includes tapas, but a portion of it is very small.
