Random Topic Tuesday: Tapas

Don't like 'em. And frankly, I don't see what the point is.

Okay, I do see what the point is. It's like tapas are the prostitutes of the food world: Everyone gets a taste. Great. But I don't want a taste, I want a mofo plate of mofo food. If someone wants a bite they can have one. ONE. It's like the episode of Friends when Joey is out with a girl and she takes fries off his plate.


Tapas and their various other ethnic incarnations are the restaurant industry's way of raping the American public. There, I said it. What? They can make tiny little plates of food and charge you $7 for it. You obviously can't have just one. If you try to order just one, the waiter will make you feel like Tiny Tim. So you each order a couple plates, and then before you know it you're paying $25-35 bones for what will probably amount to an appetizer.

The reason I bring this up is that I was walking through Pentagon Row, and two new tapas places have moved in. TWO. Next to each other. And I can't blame them because they can buy very little food (and by very little I mean in terms of quantity, not that the food is miniature...though actually I guess it is) and charge you like you actually had a real meal. That's a business plan I can understand.

People always give me crap when I say I don't like Tapas. "How can you not like them, they're just food." Poop is just food (to some people's dogs). Well, I don't like poop (to eat...I like it for pretty much everything else) and I don't like tapas. Deal with it.

Thank you. That needed to be said. The same goes for sushi, which, while tasty, is wholly unsatisfying compared to, say, a broiled piece of salmon.

I really think people are starting to eat like they dress - it's image management. And needs to stop.
