Meze (pl. Mezethes) is the Eastern Mediterranean version of Spanish tapas.

Mezethes are little dishes designed to complement a beverage, tease the tastebuds and encourage diners to linger around a table for good conversation. In Greece, they are served in a tsipouradiko or ouzeri, (café-like establishments that serve tsipouro or ouzo respectively).
