Mealtimes in Latin based cultures differ from those in the U.S. Most notably, they eat dinner much later. You won't see many diners in restaurants before 9:00 in the evening. Here's a typical Spanish (Spain) daily eating schedule:
8:00 - 9:30 Breakfast A cup of coffee and a pastry
10:30 - 12:30 Snack A pioece of toast and another cup of coffee.
1:00-2:00 Appetizers A variety of different tapas or small appetizer dishes.
2:00 - 3:00 Lunch This is the big meal of the day. It includes a soup or a salad, main course, a dessert or fruit and usually, a cup of coffee.
5:00 - 7:00 Afternoon Snack For children, cookies and a glass of chocolate milk. Adults enjoy yet another cup of coffee....
8:30-11:00 Dinner Much lighter than lunch - usually an omelet or a sandwich and a fruit or dessert. No coffee this time!
