    Hi Moira, I guess it would depend on the context, but one of the options could be "tomar un bocado" Hope it helps

    Hi Moira,

    As Hebe say depend on the context,because bite is translated
    "mordedura" o "mordisco" too,then would be "darme un modisco" maybe
    in near human relations context or "lograr u obtener una mordedura" in
    the animal or zoo context by example.

    hope its help

    "To get a bite" suele significar salir a comer algo. Generalmente se usa para la merienda o almuerzo.

    Justin tiene razón.
    To grab a bite or to get a bite implica salir a comer algo o "ir a comprar algo para comer". Nada más corto que eso, hasta donde yo sé!

    Hebe, "tomar un bocado" no suena muy natural en Argentina, de hecho "en el resto de latinoamérica sí?

    Exactamente así lo decimos en Argentina... si eso es lo que necesitás.

    Tomar un bocado también se puede decir en España, sin embargo es más corriente oír:

    Tomar algo. (esto es en general para bebida o comida)

    También: tomar un tentempié, tomar un piscolabis (solo comida)
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."


    El Corán (libro sagrado de los musulmanes, recitado por Alá a Maomé en el siglo VI)

    Moira,
    In the UK, I am going "to get a bite", means I am going to "get something to eat"
