Daily Life ‐ Ordering Chinese Food (C0291)
Waitress: Hi, welcome to Happy Buddah! Can I get you anything to drink?
Manny: A Coke for me, please.
Andrea: I’ll have a Sprite.
Waitress: Okay, I’ll go get that for you. Are there any questions with the menu?
Andrea: Do you use MSG?
Waitress: No ma’am, we are MSG-free.
Andrea: Oh man, I haven’t had Chinese food in so long! I want everything! This place has the BEST sesame chicken.
Manny: Yeah, I’ve been craving Chinese for such a long time. I used to get take-out all the time. It’s definitely been a while. Let’s start off with some crab rangoon.
Andrea: Ooh yeah, that sounds good. I think I’m going to get the sesame chicken with fried rice, a spring roll, and egg drop soup.
Manny: It’s so tempting to order everything on the menu, it all looks so appetizing! I think I’ll get General Tso’s chicken, hot and sour soup, fried wontons, and white rice.
Andrea: Aren’t you supposed to be on a diet? You should at least get brown rice.
Manny: I don’t think so! I hate brown rice, and I’m so sick of eating healthy all the time. I’ve been eating so much salad I swear I’ve forgotten what meat tastes like! There’s no better remedy than some nice, greasy, calorieladen Chinese food. I might even get an order of broccoli beef!
Andrea: Gosh, I’m so hungry! Let’s call the waitress over!
