‘Desayuno’

In Food, helpful phrases, helpful words on July 6, 2010 at 7:00 pm

The menu at our restaurant is VERY limited when it comes to breakfast during the week.  Brunch is a whole ‘nother story.  During the week though, guests often ask what we DO have for breakfast and while it’s only two items, I try and sell the hell out of them!  Today’s word of the día is DESAYUNO. (pronounced day-cy-YOU-no) It means BREAKFAST.

With your customers:

“Para el desayuno, tenemos solamente…”

“For breakfast, we only have…”

‘Huevos’

In Food on April 20, 2010 at 12:21 am

Yesterday we were serving our brunch menu and we offer eggs in as many ways as the guests can come up with.  The spanish word for EGGS is HUEVOS (pronounced: WHEY-vos).

Here are a few ways that eggs can be ordered from your guest, ideas you can suggest to them or things you can  tell the kitchen that you still need to finish your ticket:

Huevos Revueltos (ray-WELL-toes) = Scrambled Eggs

Huevos Escalfados (es-cal-FAH-tho) = Poached Eggs

Huevos Fritos (frrrEE-toes) = Sunny Side Up

Huevo Duro (DO-rrrro) = Hard-Boiled Egg

Huevos Fritos bien cocinados = Over Hard
