This is food, served in small portions, which you can order before you get your main dish. Examples of appetizers served at many American restaurants are: shrimp cocktail, fried calamari and Buffalo wings.
“Let’s get the fried calamari as an appetizer.”
Main Course 主菜
This is the main plate which usually consists of a protein, a vegetable and a starch..
“On my birth day I go to my favorite restaurant and I get a lobster for my main course.”
This is another way to refer to the main course.
“I ordered the salmon as my entrée.”
The tip is money paid to the waiter or waitress in addition to what you pay for the food and drinks. In the United States, most people leave 15% to 20% if the service was good.
“I am going to leave $20 for the tip.”
The check is the printed out copy of the total amount due with a price for each individual item purchased.
“Once the waiter brings the check, we should leave right away.”
Side dish 边菜
These are food items like vegetables and potatoes that come with the main course that you order. Some restaurants will let you decide which “sides” you want to accompany the meal you have ordered.
“With that dish you can choose two side dishes to go with it.”
Many American restaurants will have a dish or dishes that are not on the regular menu. These dishes usually change every day and the waiter will tell you the price.
“Today’s specials are fried fish and tortilla soup.”
