Welcome to twominenglish.com. Teaching you English through two-minute lessons. In this lesson we will learn some phrases you can
use while placing an order at a restaurant. What exactly is Thenthuk? It’s one of the most popular Tibetan dishes. It’s
a flat noodle soup with vegetables and meat. Sounds delicious. Is it a starter? It’s sometimes eaten as a whole meal. But you can
have it as a starter if you split it. Is there any fish in it? No, but there’s lamb. Aah. Well, I want a fish based dish today. Let me order something else. Good evening. Are you ready to order? What are today’s specials? Today we have grilled tuna and New York strip
steak served with creamy Italian herb sauce. I think I’ll have the grilled tuna. It is served with a choice of rice, baked potatoes, or French fries. Rice, please. Anything to drink? A glass of lemonade, please. Ok. Your order will be served soon. Excuse me, could you please bring me some tomato sauce? Sure! How many serves would you like to have? Is the extra sauce charged? Yes, Ma’am. It should be complimentary! Anyways. Get me two serves, please. Can I get you anything else? Dessert or coffee? I’d like to have some dessert. Any suggestions? The brownie served with vanilla ice cream is often ordered. Hmm…excellent! Please, bring me one. Sure. I’ll be right back. What exactly is Thenthuk? Is it a starter? Is there any fish in it?
