Talking about meals and food
¿Qué tomas para el desayuno?
What do you have for breakfast?
A veces tomo un vaso de jugo y un poco de pan. ¡No me gusta el cereal
para nada! I don’t like cereal at all!
¿Qué tomas para el almuerzo?
What do you have for lunch?
Por lo general tomo un sándwich, una manzana y un vaso de leche.
Generally I have a sandwich, an apple, and a glass of milk.
Tengo sed. ¿Qué hay para tomar?
I’m thirsty. What’s there to drink?
Hay jugo, refrescos y agua. ¿Qué prefieres?
What do you prefer?
The verb encantar and indirect object pronouns
1.The verb encantar (to really like; to love) works just like the verb gustar.
Me gusta la leche, pero me encanta el jugo de naranja.
Nos encantan los plátanos.
A Juan y Sara les encantan los sándwiches.
2.The pronouns me, te, le, nos, les in front of the verbs above are called
indirect object pronouns, which generally tell to whom or for whom. In this
case, they tell to whom something is pleasing.
Te gusta la leche, ¿verdad?
Milk is pleasing to you, right?
3.Remember to use the definite article with encantar or gustar when saying
that you like something in general.
Me encanta el jugo de naranja.
I love orange juice.
o → ue stem-changing verbs
1.You’ve already learned about e→ ie stem-changing verbs
such as querer.
2.Another type of stem change is o → ue. Almorzar (to eat
lunch) is an example; all forms have a stem-change except
nosotros and vosotros.
3. Another o → ue stem-changing verb is poder (can; to
be able to).
No puedo estudiar contigo esta noche porque tengo que trabajar.
Nota cultural
1. Breakfast in Spanish-speaking countries is usually eaten around 7 or 8
A.M. People often eat un panecillo (a plain or sweet roll) and a piece of
fresh fruit, such as papaya or piña. Café con leche or chocolate are
served for breakfast.
2. The main meal (called simply la comida) is usually eaten around two
o’clock. It is typically a heavier meal than lunch in the U.S.
3. La comida consists of soup, meat, or fish with rice and vegetables,
followed by dessert and coffee.
4. A typical Ecuadorean dish is cazuela de mariscos, a casserole prepared
in a clay pot with seafood and maní.
5. For many people, it is traditional to have a rest, or siesta, after the
comida, and then go back to work until late evening.

1. Comment on food using the verbs ser
and estar plus adjectives.
Commenting on food
How something tastes…
¿Cómo está la sopa?
How is … ?
Está deliciosa. … delicious.
Está fría y salada. … cold … salty.
¡Está caliente! … hot.
¿Y cómo están los frijoles?
And how do the beans taste?
Están muy picantes pero están ricos.
… spicy … delicious.
¿Y cómo está el postre?
And how’s the dessert?
¡Está muy dulce!
It’s very sweet!
You’ve already learned that estar and ser mean to be.
Estar is often used to talk about how specific things taste, look,
or feel.
Ser is used to tell what something is like, or to talk about the
general nature of things.
Look at the two sentences below. Which one is a general
statement, and which one is a comment about a particular dish?
Los camarones son ricos.
Shrimp are delicious.
Los camarones están ricos.
The shrimp are (taste) delicious.
You’ve learned that tener means to have or to be.
In the following situations it means to be:
Tener hambre (to be hungry)
Tener sed (to be thirsty)
These are often used when talking about meals. Use the
feminine form mucha with these expressions to mean very.
Tengo mucha sed, pero no tengo mucha hambre.

Describing a restaurant
Nota cultural
Two common dishes in the Andes
mountains are sancocho ( thick stewlike soup made of green plantains and
corn) and carne colorada, (beef that
has been prepared with achiote, or
annatto, which gives it a characteristic
red color).
These dishes, like most Ecuadorean
cuisine, are not spicy. Ají, a spicy
condiment made of tomatoes, onions,
and hot, red chili peppers, is placed on
most tables at mealtime for added flavor.

Nota cultural
In Spain, a tortilla is a kind of omelet.
The tortilla española, made of eggs,
potatoes, onions, salt, and olive oil, is
a popular dish for a light evening meal.
In Mexico and Central America, a
tortilla is made from cornmeal or flour,
pressed into a flat round shape, and
cooked on a griddle. These tortillas are
the bread that goes with almost all
meals. They are especially good when
they’re hot and fresh off the griddle.
