The term tapas may no longer be exclusive to Spanish plates (you'll find everything from Peruvian to Mexican below), but it's still wholly defined by its gorgeous flavours and broad ingredients. For small plate fun in the city? We're bringing you croquetas in Shoreditch, slinky wine-led tapas bars in central London and padron peppers in Brixton.
