Spanish Restaurant Sounds

On January 6th, Three King's Day, we were out for dinner along with many families here, since a holiday, or fiesta day is often celebrated by the whole family going out to a restaurant. This day there were many large tables filled with groups of friends as well as families with small children. I love these days!
The noise level and laughter gradually increases in proportion to how much wine has been consumed, and as the day wears on, through one dinner course after another.

Just for fun I put my camera on out table and set it to video, but being careful not to record faces of the folks as they were dining. I just wanted to catch the sounds.
So here it is....only a few seconds long.

Sounds just like lunch time in Ybor City. This Spanish community has some of my most favorite restaurants.

Thanks for sharing.

It sounds busy and lively.

Are there any special foods associated with Three Kings Day?

RE: Spanish Restaurant Sounds

Petaloid...nothing special that I have seen, other than a day out with the family and a good meal, perhaps of fish or roast beef or pork. The sort of meal where kids and grandparents all go along, everyone dresses up a bit and they're generous with what they order, including desserts and drinks.

There is a special round pastry called "Roscn de Reyes" which I believe is known as "King's Cake" in USA. It's a round light pastry decorated with sweets and a golden crown.
Here is a photo of one, cut through the middle and stuffed with whipped cream. This is usually eaten at home with coffee or breakfast.
