(Last UPDATED 12/27/21) Description and review of Tapa the World, a popular Spanish restaurant located in Midtown Sacramento.
Tapa the World is a great place to dine alfresco. However, on my most recent visit prior to attending a play at Music Circus it was a triple-digit day and the outside patio was empty.
My dining companion was already seated in the restaurant when I arrived. I had at the last minute decided to park close to the theatre as opposed to the restaurant. This worked out well because after the play I drove her back to her car near the restaurant on my way home.
Having walked at a brisk pace I was definitely what I would call “overheated”, and entering the dim and cool dining room was a relief.

The first tapa dish and a pitcher of sangria were already on the table when I arrived. I poured myself a glass of sangria and we enjoyed the Berenjenas (eggplant, breaded and fried, topped with a cool tomato, garlic and herb compote and shredded Parmesan) tapa dish while we looked over the menu to decide what else to order.
A cold gazpacho soup for my friend and a heirloom tomato salad for me was followed by the empanadas. We had debated having one more tapa, but decided to wait before we ordered an additional dish – which was a wise decision.
Leftovers + hot car = not a good idea.
Tapa the World has, Wednesday through Sunday nights, Spanish Classical and Flamenco Guitar music from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. I find that the music really adds a special something to the dining experience.
