I’d like to say that’s the way food is served in small amounts. I have seen tapas being served in Japanese restaurants and none of them have any Spanish fusion into their menus.

Tapas are Spanish.  If a Japanese restaurant is serving tapas, they are actually serving appetizers.

OP, this website may help you a bit more.

Tapas is not a particular type of food. Anything can be tapas – paella, croquettes, ham and cheese on toast, truly anything. As long as it is small and served with your drink (either free or at a surcharge), it is tapas. Read more about free tapas in Spain It doesn’t even have to be Spanish – in Granada there are a number of Morrocan bars that offer cous cous, falafel and kebabs as tapas.

You can totally serve non-Spanish food and call it a tapas bar.  Tapas is more of a style than a type of food.  Tapas also frequently includes small portions of side dishes and entrees.  You can call it tapas or you can call it an appetizer buffet–it does not matter.

And last night, I catered at a wedding that had 3 apps buffets.  They did not listen to us when we said to over order and they ran out of food.  OVER ORDER IF IT’S APPS ONLY!  People eat way more if it’s apps only because they graze on it.  Same for cakeballs and those tiny cupcakes–you always have to over order on those because people just see a tiny bit and are like Oh I could totally eat another it was so good.

Tapas can really be anything I believe – but is just “small plates.”  I have been to Spanish tapas restaurants and that seems to be the most popular, but it is also pretty popular with Mediterranean food, as well. At least where I am from.
