    Hi, I’d like to know how exactly waiters ask you if you wanna eat in the restaurant or coffee shop or whatever or, if you wanna take out your order. I’m in Korea and several times I know they asked me that but I didn’t understand! And I still not… >< Thank you in advance!

    By the way, good video :)

    Awesome! I love going to korean stores and restaurants checking out whats good and most important those food stuff that will suite my diet:) Im actually a vegetarian… May i please ask for some help? how do i say, i am a vegetarian, do you have vegetarian food? in korean….

    Thank you very much for your effort and time for helping me with my korean!

      As there are not many vegetarian people in Korea, it should be challenging for you to find vegan restaurant.

      i am a vegetarian, do you have vegetarian food?
      > 저는 채식주의자예요. 채식주의자를 위한 음식이 있나요?

      I think it is hard to know the natural Korean word for vegetarian food so I translated it as “A food for vegetarian”.
      I hope this will help you.

  • 어드리

    So I’m taking my parents out for some Korean food, and if I wanted to order 잡채 for all of us to share would I say to the waiter 잡채 일인분 주세요 or would I say 잡채 새인분 주세요. Please help 감사합니다.

    • http://twitter.com/jinseokjin jinseokjin

      If there are two people,and you all want to eat 잡채, then you can say “잡채 이 인분 주세요”.

      We don’t say 잡채 새인분 주세요.
