Percakapan Memesan Makan (Ordering a Meal)

Salah satu keahlian yang harus dimiliki ketika travelling ke luar negeri adalah memesan makanan dalam bahasa lokal. Kalau kita tidak bisa bahasa lokal, bisa kelaparan di jalan.

Kalaupun kita tidak bisa bahasa lokal, biasanya di tempat wisata banyak yang bisa berbahasa Inggris. Minimal memesan makanan dalam bahasa Inggris harus kita kuasai agar tidak kelaparan.

Nah berikut adalah contoh beberapa percakapan memesan makanan ke pelayan (waiter) di rumah makan atau restoran.
