I had a Spanish lesson today and I came across a good descriptive word relating to my previous posts about food, so I thought I’d share it with you.

amargo – bitter/tart

Amargo can be used to describe how something tastes. For example,

Este pomelo es muy amargo. – This grapefruit is very bitter.

The noun would be amargor, meaning bitterness or tartness:

Necesito añadir azúcar, el amargor es demasiado. – I need to add sugar, the bitterness is too much.
