"Dee Chocolatay" is how you pronounce what I wrote in the title. I called room service and ordered a salad and a chicken dish and a dessert. The dessert was chocolate cake.
If you're in a spanish speaking country and you call for room service, they expect you to speak spanish, so the first thing I say is "Ingles?" This is to signal that I am english speaking, so if you can speak english that would be great. However, I still try to express myself in spanish as much as possible. The man on the other end of the line was SO nice! The menu has a spanish section and an english section so I could figure out what I wanted to order, but still read from the spanish.
- Salade de Tomate (The english says that is a tomato and mozzarella and basil salad - Caprese?)
- Milanesa de Pollo (the english says that is chicken milanese with cheese sauce, mashed potatoes and vegetables.)
OK - chocolatay
He said, Si!
