“Gochumon O Dozo”

Hello Readers!

The title means, "your order please".

Today I completed Survival Phrases lessons 12, 13, & 14, and Japanese lessons 11 & 16. The bulk of the material was about fast food, which is what I want to expand upon today.

So far, the fasuto fudo (fast food) I have been to just happen to both be American chains; Subway and McDonalds.

Subway was fantastic! In America, we "eat fresh" with tuna, turkey, ham, and roast beef; just to name the staple items. At the restaurant here in Japan, you can order egg salad, shrimp and avocado, and veggie dogs for example. Instead of your standard condiments like mayonnaise and mustard, Subway offers toppings like basil, wasabi, and pepper sauce.

Want a combo meal? Here, instead of chips, you get potato wedges and you choose which flavor you want; regular, cheese, basil, or BBQ. As far as the beverage is concerned, that too is different than in the US. It seems that "free refills" is virtually unknown here. Want diet cola or a lemon-lime soft drink? You won't find that here. The options at the Subway I went to were limited to Coke, Ginger Ale, tea, and "Melon Pop".
