PLP 064 - Beginners - Ordering at the restaurant in Portuguese

Ordering at the restaurant in Portuguese


This is episode 64 and it’s for beginners.

This is a listening and speaking practice episode and we’ll be talking about what’s in the menu at a restaurant. I have talked before about food and being at the restaurant in episodes 19, 20 and 21.

Here is the context:

A tourist opens the menu at a traditional Portuguese restaurant and he scans the available dishes.

  1. De entrada há sopa de espinafres, azeitonas e pão.

  2. O prato do dia é um prato de peixe grelhado.

  3. O acompanhamento são batatas cozidas e couve portuguesa

  4. De sobremesa há fruta da época.

  5. O turista chama o empregado de mesa para fazer o pedido.

How it works:

  • I’ll start by stating a fact.

  • Next, I’ll ask a series of questions regarding that fact.

  • You’ll have a pause that gives you some time to answer.

  • Finally, I’ll give you the correct answer before moving on to the next question.

  • You also have time to repeat the correct answer.
