Eric: Ok, now let's see the formal way to ask 'What do you recommend to me?'

Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Chrissi: The word κατάλογος (katálogos) is commonly used at cafés, while the word μενού (menu) is mainly used at restaurants.
You can also say Δεν έχουμε αποφασίσει ακόμα. Μπορείτε να έρθετε σε λίγο; (Den éhume apofasísi akóma. Boríte na érthete se lígo?), which means "We haven't decided yet. Could you come back in a while?"

Outro

Eric: And that’s all for this lesson. Don’t forget to check out the lesson notes, and we’ll see you in the next lesson!
Chrissi: Γεια χαρά!

Γεια σου Richard!


Χμμμ... τι θα μου άρεσε να φάω;

Νομίζω μπεκρή μεζέ ή γαύρο τηγανητό με λεμόνι!


Μην μου ανοίγεις την όρεξη, σε παρακαλώ!
