Food abbreviations in non-English speaking countries?

The thread about "sammies" make me realize I know what people are talking about when they abbreviate most English words. But, what foods in other countries are abbreviated, eg. do Italians eat pannie? Do the French have coqcog for dinner? It must be difficult for non-native speakers to pick up the colloquial terms.
