Food / La comida
We are certain that at some moment during your stay in Spain, you will want to jot down some of our most famous recipes to take back home with you, as you are sure to fall in love with the traditional cuisine which is on offer in many of the restaurants here. Do you know which ingredients you should ask for when you go to the market if you are going to buy items to cook for yourself? If you do not know how to ask yet then that is not a problem; in this page, you will find the main fruits, vegetables and even drinks from our country so that you are ready to order them whenever you like after revising the terms we have here.
These terms will be of great help to you when you are doing even simple daily or weekly chores like shopping. Going to food shops will open your eyes to the great variety of products which we sell, and you will be able to go along and see which of the products you can name in Spanish. Of course it is also very important to know about certain words and phrases when you go to a restaurant or cafe too: you need to know that the menus which are marked with “la comida” are only available at lunch time, and of course if there is any time of food which you are allergic to or which you do not eat then you need to be able to point out to the waiter or waitress that you cannot have it on your food – and to make special checks that it will not be an ingredient which is used. If you are not certain then try to keep our list close at hand when you enter a restaurant in order to check back on any terms that you do not recognise!
