Spanish term or phrase: Rúcula, carpaccio con rúcula
Food & Dining Term for a Menu. Rúcula is a green vegetable
Virginia
English translation:arrugula; carpaccio
Explanation:
This isn't exactly Spanish here! ;-))

Rather, it's a regional Italian dialect. The "garden" name for the plant is *rocket* or *rocket cress*, but stores and restaurants prefer to call it *arrugula* (also Italian). I grow it every year: it is a tangy, slightly peppery green. Definitely an acquired taste, but once you've learned to like, wow!

And here is the explanation of *carpaccio*--which you *don't*, of course, translate!!!:

Carpaccio - An Italian dish made of paper thin slices of beef dressed with olive oil and parmesan cheese. Slices of raw white truffles are an excellent partner to this dish.

I've only ever had this dish once, in a very exclusive resort in Mexico (one of the Cortez haciendas)--and even there, it didn't come with white truffles.
