Food Glossary: Almuerzo

If you travel in South America, then a common meal to see on boards outside restaurants is the 'almuerzo'.  Translated it means lunch and that's exactly what it is...a set lunch!  This really is a great way to eat as its cheap, usually good and tasty food.  You always have a soup first (which are ALWAYS good), then a main meal which usually consists of a meat or fish, rice and salad or veg, then a small dessert.  Sometimes you get a juice included also.  The most we paid for an almuerzo on the trip was $3.50 and the least was $1.50 so you can see they really are great value.
