Abstract It seems like the most basic task in the world, but when you're a Westerner in the middle of Beijing or Shanghai, ordering a meal takes on unforeseen challenges. This program demonstrates Chinese vocabulary and phrases used to identify and ask for food in a restaurant. It also shows food being ordered from a noodle stand, presents ways to talk about food preferences, and shows how to pay the bill. Cultural topics include a showcase of the huge range of foods available in Beijing morning or night, from vegetables to dumplings to roast duck, and a flavor of home cooking during the mid-autumn Moon Festival.
