Whether you’re going out to eat at a restaurant or planning to cook a meal at home, choosing what to eat is so difficult. But that doesn’t mean you can decide alone what to eat ignoring your friends’ liking. Let’s learn a Korean phrase that will help you share your thoughts when deciding the menu together.

If you want to say, “What do you want to eat for dinner?,” you can use this expression: “jeo-nyeog-eu-lo mweo-meog-go-sip-eo-yo?”

Try: “What do you want to eat for lunch?” In this case, you can simply change the word from “jeo-nyeog” to “jeom-sim.”
“jeom-sim-eu-lo mwo meog-go sip-eo-yo?”

“What do you want to eat for dinner?”
= 저녁으로 뭐 먹고 싶어요? (jeo-nyeog-eu-lo mweo-meog-go-sip-eo-yo)
 (jeo-nyeog-eu-lo 저녁으로 = for dinner, mweo 뭐 = what, mweo-meog-go-sip-eo-yo 먹고싶어요?)

“What do you want to eat for Lunch?”
= 점심으로 뭐 먹고 싶어요? (“jeom-sim-eu-lo mwo meog-go sip-eo-yo?”)
(a-chim아침 = breakfast, 점심 jeom-sim = lunch, 저녁 jeo-nyeog = dinner)
