    I've been going out a lot lately to restaurants, and the big thing now is "small plates" and tapas.

    I like it.

    You get to taste lots of different things, and they still make good money.

    tonight we had peppered candied bacon, coconut shrimp with mango dipping sauce, sliders, and something amazing.

    see.. since i was little (and that was a LONG time ago) we grew up on something called Tree Tavern Pizza. It was a frozen pizza.

    I just recently found out that the original Tree Tavern Pizza place is literally 2 miles from my current home.

    they have a restaurant/wine bar and it was awesome. Live music, great atmosphere and the stupid frozen pizza is FRESH!!!

    Dim sum /ˈdɪmˈsʌm/ (simplified Chinese: 点心; traditional Chinese: 點心; pinyin: Diǎnxīn) is a style of Cantonese food prepared as small bite-sized or individual portions of food traditionally served in small steamer baskets or on small plates. Dim sum is also well known for the unique way it is served in some restaurants, whereby fully cooked and ready-to-serve dim sum dishes are carted around the restaurant for customers to choose their orders while seated at their tables.

    the trendy thing was calling it tapas for about 5 minutes, and now the real snobs turn their noses at that term and are calling it small plates.

    it's a whole thing.
