If you order salchicha in Latin America, don’t expect something exotic; what you’ll get is a hot dog.
In Latin America, you’ll find dogs in rice, sandwiches, and omelets. laylag has ordered papas fritas (french fries) and got french fries topped with hot dog. anonimo contributes this photo of fries, with sliced hot dogs in a bowl, in the background.
This is good info to have when traveling with the kiddies!
