Understanding the customs and food of a country helps travelers understand the people who live in the country. Even people who speak passable Spanish can have trouble reading a menu. Although you may know the word for meat in Spanish is 'carne', you may be surprised to discover 'ropa vieja' on a menu. It means 'old clothes' but in fact, is shredded beef. Can you imagine a foreign traveler who speaks basic English understanding what Prime Rib is? Buffalo Wings? Veggie Platter anyone? This guide takes the mystery out of a menu written in Spanish and makes dining in 19 Spanish speaking countries easy and enjoyable. The guide also includes: Dining specialties and customs in 19 Spanish speaking countries (including advice on tipping, mealtimes and the safety of drinking water). Pronunciation guide. English to Spanish words and phrases. Spanish to English guide of over 2500 words and phrases in an illustrated, easy-to-use format.
