Mussels in Spanish anyone?

Am about to go to Galacia in Spain for a field trip and have hears that sea food is a speciality here - am allergic to mussels and would like to ask - "Does this contain mussels" so that I don`t get sick after enjoying all the lovely food I am expecting!
Any ideas?

Remember that mussel also translates as: almeja (apart from clam)

Look, which of the two are you allergic to:

To ask whether a dish contains any particular type of food, just ask:

¿Tiene esto [name of the food here]'

Go to the main page (or click on "dictionary" at the top of this page) and type in "mussel" in the word look-up box.
