Continuing the culinary adventures of London, I’ve decided small plates are the best thing since sliced bread.
Or peanut butter and dill pickles together.
I know small plates aren’t a new trend, but this trip was the first time I’d had them several times and it confirmed my love for them.
If you’re anything like me, you look at a menu and can never decide what to order.
“Hmm…I feel like fish but that steak sounds so good. No, wait. I want that salad. Maybe the salad and the steak. What are you having? What do you recommend?”
The best part of having a few small plates is getting to try and sample so much.
That sounds good. So does that. Oh, that too. You can order it all and try it!
*Now would be a good time to mention all these stops did not occur in one day. Someone would have had to roll me onto the airplane home.*
The first small plate excursion was to The Real Greek where the small plates are know as meze.
It was so good I wanted to start smashing plates and shout “Opa!” The only way to top that meal would have been to have some Bonk cake. If you’ve seen My Big Fat Greek Wedding you understood that.
Next stop on the international small plates tour was Tapas Revolution.
Therefore I have radar precision when it comes to spotting lime and mint together, especially on a drink menu. Since it was 11am in London and only 5am in the US when we ate at Wahaca, I went for the the citrus fizz which was crushed lime, mint leaves, and sparkling water.
So there you have it. All those flavors and dishes with little bites along the way. I think it’s a really refreshing and casual way to eat a meal as opposed to a large, over sized portion!
Now if I could just find chorizo, grilled Mexican corn, and revithia in one place…
