Food Vocabulary Video Transcript: French Translation



Bonjour. Je pourrais avoir la carte, s'il vous plaît. Merci.

Ok. Je voudrais commander maintenant. Qu'est-ce que vous me conseillez? Comme hors d'œuvre, je voudrais la laitue en fin velouté à la noix de muscade sur une fleurette d'oignon doux. Comme plat principal, je voudrais le mijotée de noix de joue de boeuf au vin rouge, à point. Comme dessert, je prendrai la fraise au champagne rosé, granité de mangue et croustillant de fruits rouges. Comme boisson, je prendrai du vin blanc.

Ce n'est pas ce que j'ai demandé, mais c’est délicieux!

L'addition, s'il vous plaît. Le service est compris? Je crois qu'il y a une erreur dans la note. Merci!

Hello. I would like to have a menu, please. Thank you.

Okay, I would like to order now. What do you recommend? To start, I would like the lettuce velouté with nutmeg and sweet onion cream. For the main course, I would like the simmered walnut and red wine ox cheek, medium rare. For dessert, I'll take the strawberries and pink champagne with mango granita and berry crisp. To drink, I'll have white wine.

This isn't what I ordered, but it's delicious!

The check, please. Is the gratuity included? I think there is a mistake in the bill. Thank you.
