Life List Day 57 - Tapas
I love eating lots of little different somethings vs. one big everything.
Tonight, I met my friend Janice and her friend, Deena, at a tapas restaurant, Mediterraneo, in Hermosa Beach. I Wikipediaed "tapas" to find out what the difference was between them and appetizers - and the answer is, not much, other than, 1) tapas are of Spanish origin and 2) the waiter is less likely to sneer at you if you attempt to make a meal out of them.
We ordered a table-full of dishes. Hummus. Spanakopita. Shrimp. Babaganush. Baked goat cheese. Roasted veggies. On and on and on.
We chose the tapas restaurant because I said, "suggest somewhere I haven't been before."
Of course, being the queen of ruts, now that I've tried this new place, I can't wait to go back again and again.
