English Practice: Discussion Question

American Culture:

Most

people in the United States don't like to eat "plane" or “hospital” food.

I am on a train to 清河 and decided to try the food on the train. I thought that the food & environnment was better than a 5 star restaurant.

    Agree; Idk how to explain it but eating in the air for example is pretty exciting and priceless; maybe because we're surrounded by people, and being in a moving vehicle is relaxing, maybe because food is too good when we're on our way to a certain destination.

    I definitely agree with you. Because those food taste not good and you don't have many choices.

    The picture above is really appealing, and the surrounding looks quiet and relaxing I can tell it was a nice experience

    Really don't like them. We normally order to go food, which directly delivered on your hand, tasty, fast, convenient, Great!

    I don’t like train food or hospital food in China. The food sold on train is way more expensive (like in a tourist attraction) and taste bad

    Disagree:) Maybe because I get car sick easily, so when I eat food on train easily make me feel more sick.If it is a long trip i'D rather dont eat at all, Or just drink some water😖

    Generally I don’t like train food, plane food or hospital food. But when someone is hungry and he don’t have many choices, these foods become delicious. Collectively, I think it depends on the environment and your hungry degree.

    l think the reason why most people don't like eat "train" or "plane" food is that people on the go don't have good appetite for that.

    Just one word: Self-satisfaction sometimes makes us happy. No matter how good the 5 star food is much more better especially in taste and appearance.

    @Austin Well, the meal that I saw sold on train are a bit more expensive. But this is still more expensive than normal, a meal like this can be normally dealt with at around 10 RMB, I think (因为只有一个花荤,两个素菜而已)

    I would rather to select instant noodles on the train,if it is long distance,I would like to wait until I arrive at the place ,and then have a meal😃

    disagree.,it tasres no good. in other word, it was terrible. maybe,when I was on the train or plane,didt have good appetipe to eat any solid food. gruel is good for me.

    I agree. i think that the food always taste better when people r hungry, especially when u r on a long journey and there's not much choice. I have ever tried it before and i liked it, the warm food on the train healed me when i was alone and hungry, it reminded me about the food that my mom cooked for me, so it wins.

    @Austin I think the most common way for Chinese people to deal with meal on a train is to bring their own food, usually ramen and some snacks (cause anyway it’s just one meal). But if you like fresh food, yeah, maybe the train meal is good a good option for you

    first I am wondering if Qinghe in Hubei province? As to your question,my answer is I totally disagree with you and I believe most Chinese agree with me.Even though I rarely go to 5star restaurant,the food on the train is not competitive compared to normal Chinese fast food restaurants like 老娘舅(the rice there is terrific)

    Hi Austin! I think that food is food; none is so bad. Nevertheless, sometimes, plane or hospital food is a little limited. In my case, i'm gluten intorant and that's a huge problem.
