Meze, the Persian word for appetizer, is being regularly used in the countries surrounding the Mediterranean basin and includes all these small dishes that we eat before the main course. Every country has its own meze dishes and they sometimes vary from place to place. They are served in small portions and a good collection of them may easily replace a main course. In Greece and Naxos, there are several taverns that serve meze only and they are called "mezedopolia".
