E. In a restaurant

點菜其實不難,難的是菜單的菜名可能看不懂。一般正式的西餐菜單會有開胃菜appetizer/starter、主菜main dish/main course/entrée、甜點dessert、飲料drink/beverage。主菜的附菜side dish有時候可以選,例如要薯條french fries,烤洋芋baked
potatoes或洋芋泥mashed potatoes,或其他青菜等。



What would you like?
/ What kind of dressing would you like?

How would you like
your steak? / What would you like to drink?

Would you like anything


點菜時的句型可用I’d like …
I’ll have … ,或是Can I have …?

最好不要用 I want …。英文的want語氣比較強烈,有時會令人覺得不禮貌。

I’d like a steak. / I’ll
have a cup of coffee. / Can I have a soup?

    I’d like a sandwich, please.

    I’ll have a sandwich, please.

Thanks. How much is that?
