English term or phrase: dip
Even my local supermarket (in Athens) is selling a recipe book called "DIPS" (written in the Latin alphabet). But my question is for a restaurant menu and I'd like to use Greek if possible. The restaurant is here in Athens, and it needs a Greek translation of the menu because it has Greek customers, so I feel very uncomfortable using "dips" in a 'translation'!!

The menu includes two types of "dip", which may make a difference in translation.

Firstly there's the widely known 'dip' which is part of the ορεκτικά e.g. "Hot nibbles....served with blue-cheese, garlic mayo and chilli dips"

Then there's the 'dip' that's a sauce served with a main meal, but not poured over it e.g. "Succulent chicken pieces...with a honey mustard dip".

agree  GeoS: Σωστά το έθεσες. Αλλά σε τέτοιους δύσκολους καιρούς το "για βούτηγμα" μπορεί να ερμηνευτεί και αλλιώς... :D Φοβερή η εκδοχή με την εμβάπτιση. Την χρειαζόμουνα την κρίση γέλωτος με το ξενύχτι που με περιμένει...Καλό υπόλοιπο.
