Shirley: Josh, I’m really hungry now. Do you know a good restaurant we could go to?

Josh: Yes, there’s a really great chicken restaurant near my house.

Shirley: Chicken?

Josh: Yeah, they have lots of different types of chicken. They have fried chicken, baked chicken, broiled chicken, and so on.

Shirley: Hmm, chicken. You know, I don’t really like chicken that much. Do you know about somewhere else, somewhere that doesn’t have chicken or beef?

Josh: Yes, there’s a vegetarian restaurant near my house, too. But it’s in the opposite direction.

Shirley: Great. Okay, what kind of food do they have?

Josh: They have lots of salads, fresh salads. And they also have some stirfry.

Shirley: Okay, and what’s the restaurant like?

Josh: The restaurant is really nice. It’s pretty small, and there’s not a lot people usually.

Shirley: Okay. Is it light or dark inside the restaurant?

Josh: It’s a little bit dark but the food is really good.

Shirley: Okay. What about the tables? Do they have tablecloths or do they not have tablecloths?

Josh: There’s no tablecloths and the tables are a little bit low.

Shirley: What about the price of the food? Is it expensive or is it cheap?

Josh: It’s very cheap.

Shirley: Hmm, that’s good.

Josh: Yeah. For example, you can buy a salad for only 5 dollars.

Shirley: Wow. That is cheap.

Josh: It is.

Shirley: Okay. What about a soup?

Josh: A soup is usually 6 dollars but they’re really good.

Shirley: Okay. Well, I have my car today, so is there parking at the restaurant?

Josh: There’s some parking but there’s actually a lot nearby.

Shirley: Okay, so no problem to park my car.

Josh: It’s no problem.

Shirley: Great. Then, let’s go for vegetarian.
