Flashcards: Restaurant

Use the flashcards to memorise some vocabulary related to eating out. Notice how we use some (a lot of, in fact) French words and expressions – this is because, like the food itself, English food vocabulary is quite poor.
There are dozens of French words that I could add to the list, like courgette, crème fraiche, vol-au-vent, sauté, fromage frais, café, etc.

Conversation Questions: What kind of food do you like?

Jenny invites Jake to an Indian restaurant, but Jake doesn’t like Indian food. What food does he like?

We’re going out for a meal tonight, would you like to come?

Why not? Where are you going?

We’re going to the new Indian restaurant that opened in Islington.

Ah. I don’t really like Indian food.

What? How can you not like Indian food? Everybody here just loves it.

I’m afraid I have a fragile stomach, and spicy food makes me ill.

Oh, that’s such a pity. What kind of food do you like?

I guess my favourite cuisine is Italian. You just can’t beat a good lasagne or carpaccio.

Do you know a good pizza restaurant? I mean, not a big chain like Pizza Hut, but a real Italian one?

I sure do. And it’s not far from where you live.

Really? What’s it called?

It’s called Luigi’s, and it’s just off Station Road.

Oh yes. I know the one you mean. I’ve never tried it.

You should.

I’ll tell you what. Next time we all go to the restaurant, we’ll go to that one, and you’re definitely invited!

It’s a deal. Have a nice time tonight.
