Restaurant in Camagüey: The waitress hands us menus.

The menu is full of interesting items, but before we order the waitress says they have no pizza, no fish, and no salad. The menu is in Spanish and English. They only have sandwiches:


Ham and cheese

Large ham

Small ham


Cheese and ham

It's all true. Every word.

Well.... which did you order? I hope one of you ordered the “ham and cheese” and the the other the “cheese and ham.”

There was also rice and beans, bean and rice, rice of the day (white rice), and rice “pilaf” which was also plain white rice. Rice and beans is also called “Muslims and Christians” on the menu. Except in Spanish.
