Tapas ... hit or hype?

FrustratedChef | Mar 9, 2008 09:51 PM

I'm looking for some feedback here because I can't believe I'm the only person that cringes when I hear a restaurant's menu described as tapas style. It's been around for a number of years but I've yet to be impressed. Disappointed describes my feelings better. The prices are the same but the plates just got smaller. I feel that it's a clever way for the restaurants to increase their profit margin. Come on! If your are going to serve sampler plates, they should not be at lower prices. For some reason, people think they are getting better food when the portions are smaller. Tell me what you think. I don't mind being proved wrong .. but I doubt I will.
