Bananoit, here are some more words which also includes the English definition of Gonnara... I also like it very much. Especially the ones which are crusty and well roasted under the sun...

Thank you Insan, very interesting indeed. There is also an expresion we use in cypriot greek "we are not eating gonnara" which means, I know the score, you cannot fool me.
