国外点餐表达大全


1. Firstly, you should know where you are going.

首先要弄清你要去的是什么样的餐厅


Fine dining 高级餐厅

Casual dining 休闲餐厅

Fast food 快餐


2. The differences among the above 3 kinds of dining

三种餐厅的区别


Fine dining: The people who wear a penguin suit with a tie and a shirt walk up toyou. They serve on tables. You usually require a reservation to get a table. FINE here means EXPENSIVE.

在高级餐厅中,服务员会身着无尾礼服,搭配衬衫和领带,在餐桌周围提供服务。这种餐厅需要预约订位。Fine在这里的意思就是“昂贵”。


Casual dining: You can wear something casual, like jeans and T-shirt. It's OK. No one is gonna complain. Not like McDonald's, you can sit down with a knife or a fork, and you can eat your dinner. 

去休闲餐厅吃饭时,穿着平时的衣服就可以,比如牛仔裤啊,T恤啊,穿这些也不会有人指指点点。与麦当劳这种快餐不同的是,你在休闲餐厅可以用刀叉吃饭,可以享受正餐。


Fast food: McDonald's, Taco Bell, Subway.
