Lesson 3 - Vocabulary - FOOD AND DRINK - Page5
Read what these people say about their eating habits.
When we want to go out, we usually book a table in advance, because we don’t want to go to a restaurant and find out that it’s full. We usually have a three-course meal. Most often we have soup for starters. Then we have the main course, and later we have dessert and coffee. We usually have a bottle of wine with the meal, but we order water as well. After we pay the bill, we always leave a tip for the waiter or waitress.
I almost never eat out, especially at expensive restaurants. But I often go out with friends for a pizza. Quite often I have lunch at the cafeteria at my university. The food is not bad, and it’s not very expensive. They have an excellent salad bar, which is good, because I’m a vegetarian, so I can’t eat most of the things on their menu. If I cook at home, I always make pasta, because it’s so easy.
My favourite food is sushi. It’s Japanese food, made with rice, raw fish (salmon for example), and different kinds of seafood. I know a couple of good places that serve sushi…
I’m afraid I usually have junk food. I live by myself, and I don’t think it makes sense to cook for one person. So I often eat at fast-food restaurants – such as McDonald’s, Burger King, or Kentucky Fried Chicken. If I don’t want to go out, I make a phone call and order a pizza. They deliver it in 20 or 25 minutes, so I don’t have to wait long.
I usually cook at home. My husband doesn’t know how to cook, so I shop for food and do all the cooking. I really like it. My husband has lots of health problems and I think that home made food is best for him. For dinner, I usually serve soup as the first course, and then some meat (often pork or chicken) with potatoes, rice, or dumplings. We have salad on the side.
