W：Good evening, sir. Here is our menu. Would you like something to drink before you order? C：Yes. Sparkling mineral water, please. W：No problem. Are you ready to order now, or should I come back later? C：This is my fi rst time here. Could you help me to order? W：Sure. Would you like an appetizer? C：What do you recommend? W：Our most popular starters are steamed asparagus and smoked salmon. C：I will try the smoked salmon, please. W：Good. How about a salad or a soup? C：I am not that hungry, so I think I'll skip the salad. But I would like some mushroom soup, please. W：All right. How about your main dish? Is there anything you don't particularly like? C：I am allergic to crab, and I don't eat lamb. What's your special today? W：Iceland codfish. It's very fresh and tender. C：That sounds good. I will take that. W：Right. How about some dessert after your meal? C：I would like a dish of vanilla ice cream and a pot of Earl Grey tea, please. W：Very good, sir. I will get your order into the kitchen and be right back with your sparkling water.
