In today’s blog we will be learning how to order food in a restaurant in Korean.
Let’s start with the basics.
Restaurants = 식당 / 레스토랑
Server = 서버 / 웨이터 /
Customer = 손님
Boss = 사장님
Auntie = 이모
5 people please = 5명 이요!
Menu = 메뉴판
Can we order? = 주문 할게요
What is the most famous here? = 여기 제일 인기많은 음식이 뭐예요?
Must-order items = 꼭 시켜야 할 음식
The ??? here is delicious = 여기 있는 ???이/가 맛있어요!
Thank you for the food = 잘 먹었습니다
Thank you = 감사합니다
Can I have the bill = 계산 할게요
Korean restaurants often give free food as “service” 서비스, this can range from free dumpling 만두 when you order Korean-Chinese cuisine, steamed egg 계란찜 or bean paste stew 된장찌개 when you order Korean-BBQ.
Most people don’t request but if you’ve ordered a lot of good, you can try asking “서비스로 주시겠어요?” or “서비스 없나요?”
For restaurants with free side refills like Kimchi, lettuce wrap etc, you can easily say 이거 더 주세요!
Hope these vocabularies and phrases can help you order better in any Korean restaurant!
