Spanish term or phrase: 'bañeras'
Hello,

The term 'bañeras' appears in the description of a restaurant for a tour guide of Pamplona and I'm looking for the British English equivalent please. Here's the whole sentence:

Las presentaciones en el xxx son tan insólitas como asombrosas: aquí encontrarás el 'USB marino' (vieira a la plancha con espárrago y perretxicos crudos y verduras), 'bañeras', 'hueveras' y todo tipo de recipientes curiosos donde degustar sus especialidades dignas de concurso, incluidas deliciosas hamburguesas y raciones.

bathtubs / baths
Explanation:
Well, that's what the word means. Or "baths", of course, but that has other meanings apart from the container. I don't think there's any other relevant meaning of "bañera". They must presumably be miniature versions of baths or bathtubs.

As with "hueveras", the inverted commas could indicate that they are using the name to refer to something different. Again, if so, there's no hope of guessing what it is without seeing a picture.

A bath or bathtub is called just a tub in American English.

agree  Yvonne Gallagher: just "tubs"

  -> Thanks, gallagy :). Just tubs for American English, but for British (and Irish?) readers "tubs" could mean all sorts of things, so I think the word "bath" has got to be in there.

agree  Jenni Lukac: I'd say "tiny plastic bathtubs."
