Tienes razón, Sosia. No quería recordar que el dólar se puso debil ya no es la baratilla que era antes.
No obstante, el menú del día parece una buena idea y lamento que no
lo tenemos aquí en Nueva York donde un almuerzo comparable costaría $25.00 +. Por eso, salgo ahora a comprar una rebanada de pizza con agua mineral.

Grácias amigos por el consejo y las correcciones!

Se me olvidé a mencionarles que viviré con una familia hispana, así no debe costarme demasiado.

Me gusta eso de antojito para el primer plato. ¿Se dice en Sudamérica o es de tu propia cosecha?

No es mi invento, pero gracias por el complimento. Se oye esa palabra en latinoamerica. No se cual pais en particular, pero hasta en algunos restaurantes en Nueva York se la ve en el menu.

Maybe the word complimento is South American, over here it doesn't exist.

Antojito es una palabra que procede de México. Me encanta lo que encontré en internet mientras buscaba información sobre su uso:

Antojitos son aquellos alimentos ricos en vitamina T (sí, vitamina T):
Tamales
Tacos
Tlacoyos
Tortas
Todo lo que engorda con maiz y grasa

Gracias por la información, Rusty. Aquí en España, cuando los niños se tiran al suelo algunas personas mayores dicen: No importa, le viene bien la vitamina M. No es muy educado, pero...

Complimento is certainly Spanglish, and probably not used in South America. Piropo, however, isn't a good choice in Latinamerica, because
the term is used (to my knowledge) exclusively for flirtations. Piropos
are sometimes clever rhymes men use to catch the ear of women they
are attracted to almost like a serenade. It would be fun to read some. Is there anyone in the forums who can come up with an example? Are piropos, in this form used in Spain by people other than immigrants?
Ecuadorians and Peruvians make use of piropos.

I have to ask around to find out a commonly used term for compliment--
maybe halago.
