            Second the tomato rice soup. I like to get extra bread, thickly butter it, and dip. Also, the spanish latte. Tastes a bit like those "Nips" candies, they were individually wrapped and came in a box, they were sort of hard caramels that had a chocolate center. That's what the Spanish Lattes taste like.

                    Actually, it _was_ the coconut custard pie I was thinking of. I wonder where they get if from.
