A lot of the times people will ask you how you like your chicken. And it's kind of important to have an answer for that so that you actually get a meal that you really want. First, we have it fried or deep-fried, which is made by cooking meat in oil. The difference between fried and deep-fried is that deep-fried takes a lot more oil than just regularly fried chicken. Grilled, this is a more healthy alternative because there's not a lot of oil. It's chicken that was cooked directly on a grill. Crunchy. Have you ever had chicken that just tastes really crunchy that crunches in your mouth? That is what it means. (upbeat music) People will also ask you how you like your eggs in English. First, we have one of my personal favorites, scrambled. Scrambled eggs are made by mixing the eggs together while you're cooking. Next we have poached. Poached eggs are made by partially cooking the egg in simmering water. When it's served, the egg whites will be soft and you'll be able to see the entire yolk. Sunny side up. Yes, this is a way to describe eggs. Sunny side up is when your egg is only cooked on one side of it, you never flip it. It's called sunny side up because the yolk still looks like a sun when it's finished. It sits whole in the middle of the fried egg, looking very similar to a sun. If you wanna know better how to use all of these different expressions to describe food in the actual context in which they're used in, you've gotta see real life examples.

I'm really excited to see. Don't say delicious. It is old and outdated, mouth-watering. I know this sounds weird, but this is the perfect adjective to describe food that looks or tastes so good that even just thinking about it makes your mouth water. For example, I could say, oh my gosh, those donuts look so mouthwatering. Flavorful, this is used to describe food in English that is just full of flavor. It's something like, this pizza is so flavorful. Yummy, this is an informal way to say that something tastes good. So if they'll use it in formal situations, please do not. That would look so weird. Another thing you could say is, wow, this food is amazing. A lot of the times this is used when you're pleasantly surprised about the taste of something. Maybe you didn't think something would taste that good, but wow, it's amazing. Really good. This expression, I personally use all the time to describe food, I don't know why. It's kinda the same thing as delicious, but it's what's actually common and used in America. So I could say something like this fried chicken is really good, I love it. You have to try it. Tastes great. This is another common way to talk about food that tastes really good. It's again, like saying something is delicious, but without using that word, because it's outdated a bit. (upbeat music) As a general rule, always avoid saying yuck when you're talking about food that you don't like. If you say yuck, it could really offend the cook of the food or the person that made the food for you. Use these next expressions instead. The food is too, for my taste. So depending on the food, let's say you have some seafood that you don't like. I could say this seafood is too fishy for my taste. It's just not right for you. What's even better though, is that you can throw in a compliment right before saying that. So I could say, wow, this seafood is so fresh, but it's a little too fishy for me. It could use a little more or less. Use this expression to say that you would like food better if the flavors were a little different. You can say maybe it needs a little more salt or maybe it needs less sugar. This tastes different, I think I prefer. If something tastes new and unfamiliar to you and you aren't necessarily liking it, this is when you can use this phrase. It's a polite way to say that you would want a different food instead. (upbeat music) First, we have a balanced diet. Most people simply try to keep a balanced diet, which includes eating food from the main food groups like grains, fruits, vegetables, protein, stuff like that. For example, I could say that I am living a balanced diet because I want to be healthy and live long. Low-carb diet. You might hear this when somebody is trying to lose weight because what a low carb diet means is low carbohydrates. They're trying not to eat as much bread and pasta and stuff like that, everything that includes carbs in it, which leads us to our next way to describe your diet which is trying to lose weight. If you're trying to lose weight, it means you're trying to become thinner. So you can talk about your diet and say, yeah, I eat a lot of salads and I don't eat too late at night because I am trying to lose weight. Vegetarian, I was actually vegetarian when I was in high school. And what this means is that you don't eat meat. Your diet does not include meat products. So you have grains, fruits, and vegetables, and you get your protein from different sources other than meat. (upbeat music) A lot of the times people will ask you what you usually eat. I don't know why, it's just a thing in America. So here are some terms to help with that. Fast food, it is food that is served very quickly, hence the word fast food. Think of more unhealthy foods, that's kind of what fast food is. One-pot meal. This is exactly what it is. You cook all of your ingredients, everything just in one pot. So a lot of soups could be a one-pot meal, and stuff like that. Dessert, dessert is my favorite. All time favorite food. I am a sweet tooth, I love sweet food. So dessert is sweet food like ice cream, cake. Onto the next expression, which I actually just mentioned, which is to have a sweet tooth. This means that you are somebody who really likes sugary things. And I actually find that a lot of Americans are this way because there's so much sugar in our food. To eat healthy. This is very simple, it means that you're eating food that's good for your health. So like salads and lean meats and no dessert. I'm going to stick with being a sweet tooth.
