I eat rice every day so sometimes I like to eat a piece of pizza or a sandwich.
And after I ate a pizza or a sandwich, I crave to eat rice again.

I've recently eaten suchi and fish soup with a lot of species in it and I have never eaten Dumblings.

I like to eat a typical food because I love pasta in different ways. Sometimes with a lot of cheese, or with meat, or with ham or only with sauce. And cooking Italian food is easy and funny.

I like to eat all these foods. Of all the foods that I like the most is rice and the food that I like the least is suchi

I like to eat most of them except omelette and sushi I cant imagen its taste because I don't like the fish . i like to eat dumplings but we have different way to piper it . i like fruit salad and take away also.

I like to eat croissants for breakfast with a cup of coffee and milk. A fruit salad is an excellent meal also with a lot of vitamins. I like soups and sandwiches a lot, and sometimes we order pizza.
I like to eat dumplings, omelette, pizza, soup, croissant, sandwich, and of course sushi.
Are those British food?? They seem to be a jumble of food from around the world. (´σ `)?

Hello Rafaela1,

That depends on how you define 'British'! In any case, note that the title of this page is 'Food in Britain', which includes foods that people commonly eat in the UK, wherever the recipes may be from.

All the best,

I like to eat these foods: soup, pizza, sandwich, rice, croissant and omelette
I like pizza, omelette, fruit salad, meat and cheese sandwiches. I rarely eat takeaway food because if I don't feel like cooking most of the time I eat out. I prefer sitting in a restaurant with my husband or a friend. Usually, if I stay at home, either I cook or when I'm tired I just prepare something fast like a soup or a salad.

I do love to eat pizza. Besides I also like to eat omelettes with rice.
Dear Sir, Please explain to me this sentence: Curry is meat or vegetables cooked in a spicy sauce. It is often comes with rice. => What's the subject of the verb "come" ? Why we use "to be" here? Could I say: It often comes with rice? Thank you very much for your explanation, Ngoc
Hi Tran It often comes with rice. BTW, what about "It often goes with rice". What's the difference between Come and Go in this situation? Nan, where did you come from? -I come from India. Oh, come with me at an Indian curry restaurant. Rice, where did you come from? -I come from Southern China. Well, maybe you can go with Thai curry. Curry powder, where are you from? -I was born in the U.K. I get along with Rice and Nan. ^_^)y

Hi Rafaela1,

When we talk about food, we say goes with to mean that two things are a good match together. For example, we might say curry goes with rice to mean that these things taste good together.

We say comes with to mean that when you order one thing in a restaurant, you automatically get the other thing. For example, a waiter might say that the steak comes with a salad and either chips or jacket potatoes.

I really like to eat all this foods. I often cooked rice with vegetables and/or meat like chicken and sometimes I use spice with it. I like to eat soup at home, but I don't often make it by my own, I usually buy it already cooked, I just have to warm up it. Sometimes I eat takeaway foods from restaurants cooking such as Chinese/Vietnamese/Japanese food, Pizza or Sandwich food, depend of what I'd like to eat. And I sometimes also eat croissant, but I buy it, I don't cook this food by my own, same for bread. I don't often eat fruit salad but I like to eat fruits, I just don't take time to cook those together.
I like to eat pizza,omelette, different types of carry including different spices with rice or meal. I have never try croissant and dumplings, i love to eat fruit chart. In winters i use to different soups which keep me warm and healthy.
I like to eat pizza omelette and sandwiches. I like to try sushi and dumplings. When I go to the restaurant with my husband I prefer Takeaway. Usually in dinner I eat soup or rice.
I like to eat omelette and soup.... hold on! Is it correct to say "eat soup"? Can anyone help me? What am I supposed to say?? ( ・᷄ꃪ・᷅)˞ᵋᵌ
Hello Rafaela1 I say 'eat soup', and in my experience most other people also say 'eat' with 'soup'. I suppose if the soup were in a mug, I might say 'drink', but probably I'd just use the delexical verb 'have' (see https://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/english-grammar/delexical-verbs-have-take-make-give-go-and-do) to avoid saying that since it sounds a little strange!

When I hear Chinese music out of nowhere, I feel like eating dumplings, likewise, canzone invites me pizza, chanson invites me croissans, omelette, & soup, American pop music tempts me to take away sandwich and fruit salada, Japanese pops invites me to sushi, and Bollywood film tempts me to spicy curry and rice. How about you guys? ( ・◡・ )♫•*¨*•.¸¸♪
Of these foods, I like to eat sandwich, fruit salad, pizza, omelette, croissant and soup. Also, I know to prepare rice with coconut.
I like fruit too much as a salad, juice, porridge, smoothy or raw or cooked. The other my favorite one, they are soup, rice, white meat and some kind of sandwich. But I am not a fan of junk food such as pizza, however, its taste is nice. In the whole of my life, I had no dare to try sushi, I can not imagine how taste is the raw fish.
