Luckee Tapas Journey | View the VIBE Toronto

Aside from the serene beaches, breathtaking views and beautiful people, Spain is known for their food. Especially their culture of eating tapas. A tapa is an appetizer or snack famous in Spanish cuisine and basically means a “small portion of a Spanish dish”. They can be eaten hot or cold and as you can imagine, in very high quantities.

This year you can experience this Mediterranean style of dining at 39 restaurants in Toronto with the Tapas Journey. This 10-day event runs from August 10-19th and offers up a selection of three curated tapas from Toronto’s top restaurants with a cold, refreshing glass of Estrella Damm lager beer all for $20. The event is now in its 4th year and will be headed to Ottawa (Sept 14-23) and Hamilton (Sept 21-30) in September.
