Venice's fun food : cicchetti

Venice fun food : 
Pronounced “chee-KET-eeh,” cicchetti are Venice’s answer to Spain’s tapas. They’re small plates of food, usually nibbled among friends in the evening or at lunchtime. Served at bàcari (“BAH-car-eeh”), small, local bars hidden all over Venice, they’re also cheap, ranging from about €1 to €3. What’s on offer depends on the place; some bàcari lean toward fried offerings, while others specialize in fresh fish, meats, cheeses… the list goes on. Cicchetti are usually accompanied by a small glass of local white wine, which the locals refer to as an "ombra" (shadow).
