comment “Empanada”, “Emparedado”, and their genders
Thanks for the answer. I think you used "genre" (a group of things of similar style) instead of "gender" (male or female).

comment When should we use articles before nouns and when are articles not required?
El before a place name seems to be in common use for football teams. e.g El Valencia, El Dénia. Probably shorthand for El club Valencia etc.
