parrilla, noun:

If you’re eating out in Spanish-speaking countries, you will probably come across this word on menus:

pollo a la parrilla
grilled chicken

verduras a la parrilla
grilled vegetables

If you want a simple, healthy dish, without any sauces, or if you’re watching your waistline, a la parrilla is a useful phrase to get to know. Meat cooked in this way will generally come with a slice of lemon or lime. Fish might come with a mayonnaise.

¡ñam, ñam!
yum, yum!
