In Spanish we have two words: pastel and tarta. There is not an exact correspondence between the English words pie and cake and these two. For instance, an apple pie would be tarta de manzana, but a meat pie would be pastel de carne. So your translation might be correct or not depending on the kind of pie.

Usually, kid's meal is translated as menú infantil. @c.p. answers are ok. In Spain, you should always say sándwich, because emparedado sounds a bit old-fashioned.

In Spanish, at least, you can see it in the definition for a (from the DRAE): a2. (Del lat. ad) 21. prep. según. A fuero de Aragón. A lo que parece. A la moda. Interestingly notice the last one there, a la moda. Generally with foods, you'll notice that that regional styles are always specified in the feminine. Because when you say callos a la madrileña, ...

The word a in these examples is used to talk about a style or way to do/prepare some food. But a is also used to express the way to do other things.

There is no implied noun, other than possibly the ambiguous "one" or "thing," as in: Breaded one or Breaded thing The exact same thing happens in English (and probably every other language) when we use an adjective form in the place of a noun to describe something by its primary characteristic.

I am from Nicaragua. Let me explain you. There are two kinds of repochetas, both of them are made up of fried tortilla (corn tortilla). The difference is that one of them is first fried without folding, when it is fried you put on it crushed red beans on one side of the tortilla, then add cabbage salad mixed with tomatoes slices and vinegar, add sour cream ...

I do not think there is an strict etimology for this. "Alipus" was just a very popular liquor trademark and therefore it is now used to refer to any type of alcoholic drink. It is something like the word aspirin.

Depends on the shape of the cake. Seriously! A "rodaja" is usually round in shape, like a wheel ("rodaja" is related to "rueda"). A "rebanada" is literally a "slice"; i.e., similar to a "rodaja", but not necessarily round, like a slice of bread. A "pedazo" or "trozo" (they're basically synonyms) can be of any shape. It's just a part of something. A ...

I am Nicaraguan. A repocheta is a torilla filled with queso fresco and deep fried. All the beans and other stuff are just how they're served.

"A" means here either "cooked using", "cooked with" or "cooked a specific way": a la parilla -> cooked using a grill al ajo -> cooked with garlic à la bourguignonne -> cooked the burgundian way alla carbonara -> cooked the charcoal-burners way This usage is not specific to the cuisine domain. It can mean either "with" or "a la manera de", "a la moda ...
