Ordering Food in Restaurant Dialogue
Are you ready to order, sir?
Yes, have you a menu, please?
Here you are, what kind of food do you prefer, Chinese or American?
The Chinese food, please.
What’s your favorite? We have Sichuan food, Guangdong food and Shanghai food.
I am unfamiliar with the Chinese cuisines. Could you please explain to us?
Guangdong food is a bit light, while Beijing food is heavy and spicy. Sichuan food has a strong and hot taste, and Shanghai food is oily.
I’d like to eat something light, Quan dong food, please.
Okay. Here is the menu.
I’ll take some specialties of the house.
That’ll be all for now.
Let me check your order, the Season Vegetable in Oyster Sauce, the mustard greens with scallop, the Fried string beans, and the shark’s Fin Soup.
I’m sorry. I mix up the order.
Can I have it right away?
About ten minutes. I would recommend an appetizer with two or three small dishes.
Which the hors d’oeuvre do you serve?
It is seasonal vegetables.
