Explanation:
Dear Ailish,

Arroz caldoso is Soggy Rice (rice with soup) - in this case, Soggy Rice with Seafood

Arroz a Banda is a wonderful sort of rice which is served in a large plate. Please do not translate it since it has no exact translation: Arroz a Banda with Lobsters

The same for Arroz Ciego, leave it as it is since there\'s no way to translate it :) ---> Arroz Ciego with Crustaceans

Hope it helped a bit!!!

Best wishes, Flavio

agree  Worklog: These dishes are difficult to translate, better taste them, I'm sure hungry now!

agree  Marcus Malabad: with the non-translation but disagree with 'soggy rice' (bad connotations in an English menu)

  -> Thanks Marcus - I should have said "Rice Soup" but "soggy rice" is what I found in the Collins Dictionary... cheers, F.
