Hi everyone! This is 豆子。A lot of my friends are trying to figure out how to order food and drink in the restaurant in foreign countries. Today, I would like to share some words and phrases about ordering food and drink in English. The following conversations start with two friends' chat.
Veronica: I am a little bit hungry right now, let’s get something to eat!
Luna: Me too. You know me so well!Is there any good restaurant nearby that we can get something to eat?
Veronica: I am not familiar with this area, let me check my phone to see the app. Maybe some recommendations there.
Veronica: There is a Steak House nearby, do you want to try it?
Luna: Yes! Let’s go!
V：Hi, we would like to get a table for two. Thanks.
Waiter：Sure, this way please.
W：Hi, my name is Andy. This is our menu. When you are ready to order, please let me know.
