Spanish term or phrase: chiringuita
In an e-mail to a friend after finding out he has just broken up with his girlfriend:

ya deja de lamentarte Polo, que al fin y al cabo Chana no es mas que la *chiringuita* del barrio. ya te llegara una que valga la pena. Paso por ti esta noche y nos vamos a quemar el pueblo.

No se de que pais viene.
