Spanish term or phrase: comida de encanto
one item in a list of things one gets when one purchases a ski package at a ski resort; looks to me like it means snack(s) since one can get this at the "restaurante de pista" on the ski slopes.

suprise snack


Explanation:
You reasoning for "snack" seems to be solid. In addition, though, we have "encanto" which can be translated as "magic" or, I believe, in combination with "snack" a "surprise."

a fabulous/superb meal


Explanation:
"enhanting" and "meal" also don't really collocate to my ears, even for tourism blurb.

or "an excellent meal"

Didn't realise I'd clicked the button!

Was going to say "delightful meal" perhaps captures the other sense of "encanto", but I feel this is marginally weaker in English as part of a publicity campaign

fine dining


Explanation:
OK, given the lack of further context (and for that reason conf. level is only 4), and in a total departure from the "snack" idea, how about considering the opposite?
Following are a number of ref pages so you can "see" what I mean and so that you can compare usage patterns and context to your own doc.

mouthwatering meal


Explanation:
I'm going for a more creative kind of answer, given that there's so little context and more literal versions of encanto have been offered ...

or as an alternative -- mouthwatering munchies -- 24,400 Google entries for that one -- & 'mouthwatering' can also be 'mouth-watering'

mere suggestions -- and hope they help --

charming food


Explanation:
No creo que se trate de snacks. Y sí, suena extraño en castellano, debe de ser una versión traducida de lo que propongo arriba o del francés "de charme"....
