Eating out- comer fuera

I am so excited to try new foods and eat real Puerto Rican cuisine!

Eating out (fuera comer)  is a way to experience the culture of a foreign country. It is important to know what all menu items mean and to order something that will be enjoyed. If someone has an allergy, it is crucial that he/she knows what those words are in Spanish to avoid an allergic reaction. I have included vocabulary and phrases that are the most used when eating out. I also added common allergies.

Allergies-  Las allergias

seafood– el marisco

peanuts– el cacahuete, almonds- la almendra, pine nut- el piñon, cashew nut- la nuez de la India, macadamia- la macadamia, coconut- el coco (NOT cocoa)

wheat– el trigo, grains- los granos

dairy products– los productos lácteos,  cheese- el queso, milk- la leche, eggs- los huevos

breads and flours– el pan y las harinas

meat– la carne, bacon- tocino, sausage- las salchichas, pork- el cerdo, beef- la vaca, turkey- el pavo, chicken- pollo

  • Some words are masculine when one would think that they were feminine and vice versa. It takes patience and lots of practice.

Foods that are cognates! Going to a restaurant in a foreign speaking country can be overwhelming. To be safe, I have listed my go to option for going out!
