I previously learned this word as order/plate/dish. I think order is synonomous. "Quiero un plato de la especialidad de la casa" = I would like one order/plate of the house special.

plato is really not translated as order. Plate and dish are all right.

You may say simply as in English: one nº 41, un nº 41 and that's it there is no "order".

The "order" in a restaurant or bar is called "comanda" only when it goes into the kitchen and the client does not use it often. You can say something like: Qué pasa con mi comanda, when it's been long and you're still waiting but you don't say: Estoy listo para la comanda as I am ready to order, you simple say: Ya estoy listo para pedir or ya sé lo que quiero.

I think "comanda" must be a regional word because I have never used it. I use "plato" as order if I am in a restaurant like jbokhari wrote.

As I said, the client does not usually use that word because normally refers to what he or she (the client) orders, but "the order" in a restaurant is called comanda.

It might be used only in Spain, I can't tell from somewhere else, but I doubt it as I have seen references in Latin America too, so I believe it's quite extended

Sjdps: I have never heard or seen "comanda" in Mexico or Honduras, two places I spend a lot of time.

nope, they aren't synonymous (order and plate). But plate and dish, yes they are.

This isn't really about this, but I don't know where else to ask it. Does anyone know what "lingots" are, and how to get them?

Lingots are rewards you get from duolingo for finishing exercises. You get bonus lingots if you keep all your hearts. You can spend them for little perks. Click on the little red and white store icon. You should already have some lingots.
