Answers to How to Order Food in Chinese?

Answer: B

If you come to China, you will have lots of opportunities to taste Chinese cuisine. There are many different types of food available, so, to get just what you want, it is essential for you to know how to order in Chinese restaurants.

Usually, the waiter will give you a menu and ask: “请问您要什么?(Qǐngwèn nín yào shénme?) What would you like?”

The following sentence structures will help you order:

Structure 1: (Subject) + 要(yào)+ Number + Measure Words + Food

Structure 2: 来(lái) + Number + Measure Words + Food


Fúwùyuán: Qǐngwèn nǐmen yào shénme?
服务员:     请问       你们     要  什么?
Waiter: What would you like?

Linda:   Wǒ yào yífèn xīhóngshì chǎo jīdàn. Zài lái liǎngjīn jiǎozi.
Linda: 我  要   一份  西红柿       炒    鸡蛋。再  来  两斤     饺子!
Linda: I want the scrambled eggs with tomato and two jin of dumplings.

Let’s take a look at the test. “给(gěi)” means “to give somebody,” and it is usually used in the following structure: “给(gěi)” + Someone + Something. As there is no “someone” following the blank, we know that Option B is the answer.
