"La Gran Muralla" (The Great Wall) Chinese Restaurant Menu in Spanish.
This menu can be used in dialogues, skits, and assessments. My kids get a kick out of talking about Chinese food in Spanish. Most students are already familiar with the dishes and many of the items are cognates spelled phonetically so students pick up on the meaning right away (ex. rangún de cangrejo). The menu also uses many familiar vocabulary words taught in a normal lesson on food.
The menu includes hours of operation, a telephone number for delivery, and authentic address in Buenos Aires, Argentina. All prices are in Argentine Pesos (~10 to 1 US dollar).
Menu sections are appetizers, soups, rice dishes, main dishes, beverages, and dessert.
The items use normal food vocabulary (pollo, carne, frito, dulce, picante, etc) as well as advanced vocabulary specific to (Westernized) Chinese food (acajú, Sichuan, wantán, etc). All of the items are typical of a normal Chinese restaurant.
This menu can also serve as a jumping off point for cultural discussions about Chinese migration to Latin America starting in the 17th century through today.
