Looking for a new small plates experience? Bites Asian Tapas in Lakeview offers a fresh take on the tapas trend. Favorites from Asian cuisine are presented in fun and flavorful ways with plenty of options for vegetarians and meat lovers alike. Take a look at some of the dishes from Chef Marita Tantivirasut; you'll be inspired to add some spice to your next night out!

The butternut squash soup is a great way to begin. A hint of peanut and a dash of spice make this traditional soup exciting and delicious.

Pig in the Garden gives you seasoned pork, tomatoes, cilantro and crispy noodles centered on a crisp lettuce wrap.

The spicy miso ramen is a hearty and satisfying dish. There is a definite kick to the broth, pairing well with the rich pork and noodles. It is also available with tofu.

Vegatable samosas are a must order. A crispy crust holds a medley of vegetables, and the cilantro yogurt dipping sauce does a perfect job of balancing the curry flavor.

A variety of interesting cocktails are available to add to the experience. Try the Hot Geisha, a refreshing shochu concoction which you can spice up to your liking.

Take advantage of the small plate format to try the many well-crafted options at Bites Asian Tapas. With such an array of flavors, you won't want to miss out on a single dish.
