まちなかシンプル英会話 3-3-3 Dining together
Thanks for inviting me t this Japanese restaurant.
You ordered already, right?
Oh, I don’t eat fried food. I hope that’s OK…
Oh, here’s the server with our first dish. This looks good! So what is this called in Japanese?
So tell me about is dish that you ordered for us.
I see. OK. Do we say a prayer before we eat?
What do you usually say before you begin a meal in Japan?
I see. Itadakimasu. OK. I’ll try it. Ummm. It’s wonderful!
Sure. I hope you like it.
Yes… Is there anything that you don’t eat?
No problem. I ordered a dish with eggs and pork, and some side dishes.
It’s called okonomiyaki.
It’s a popular dish. It’s like an omelet and a pancake. It has eggs, vegetables and pork inside.
We can, if you like. It’s up to you.
In Japan, before anyone eats, we say “itadakimasu”…
I’m glad you like it!
