Tastet is a word of Catalan origin meaning 'a small taste of food'. The tastet is a variation of the tapas serving style; larger and more complex than tapas but smaller than a plate. Emphasis is placed on taste and presentation. The tastet can be served as an appetizer or as a small collection for a complete meal. The tastet serving style allows for the appreciation of several flavours within a single meal.
Restaurants may favour the tastet as a specialised menu format, and may offer all their tastets at a uniform price. One such restaurant is "El Jardi Del Tastets" in Palamos, Spain.
