comment Food with a bite that's referring to texture?
"Texture" is too generic. I had tuna with pickle today and the tuna was chewy while the pickle was crunchy, so I probably confused those two while thinking of smooth, non-chunky salad.

comment Is there a word that means “multiply by ten”?
That's only an adjective, though, and "denarize" might be confused with "binarize" (make binary) as in make base 10 instead of multiply by 10.

comment Is there a word that means “multiply by ten”?
From Late Latin decuplus (“tenfold”), from Latin decem (“ten”), and plico (“fold”). English is flexible, so it could be verbed; +1.
