I personally cannot decide whether I prefer to eat at home or in a restaurant. Sometimes I like fast food and sometimes not. Since in Austria american, italian and chinese food is very common, you can eat everyday something different. However, I usually eat at home, because the food tastes really good and I know what´s inside. There are also many meals that you can make yourself and that don´t require much effort. For special occasions I also like to go to a restaurant.

I prefer eating at home because it's more comfortable than in the restaurant, but sometimes when we don't want to cook, we visit a restaurant or we bring it home to us. We also love the Chinese food in Austria, but we also like the Italian or the Mexican food. Of course, you can't say Austrians like a special food because everyone has his own taste! I personally like the Chinese food very much. It's very diverse and tastes really good.

I prefer eating at home because I like cooking my food myself so I can make it just the way I like it, additionally I prefer eating at home because I can take all the time in the world eating my meal. But I don't dislike eating out because there is a far broader selection and the meals usually taste better because they are cooked by professionals.
In Austria Italian and Mexican food is very popular. Chinese, Japanese and Mongolian restaurants are also very popular

I prefer to eat in a restaurant and that for a simple reason. After a long day of school/work you can take a rest while sitting in the restaurant and waiting for some other to make it for you. Ofcourse it's way more expensive then cooking your own food but at all it's more pleasant.

I'm living in Austria and in Austria is Turkish food really popular especially "kebab" and Italian food is also really popular. Austria is a country with alot of foreign food and i'm happy about to have a choice.

I personally like eating at home because its more comfortable. When you eat at a resturant, you need to wait until the waiter comes to you so you can order your food. It probably also takes longer to wait for the food because in a resturant a lot of people are ordering food. In Austria turkish food like Kebap or Köftespieß are very appreciated.

I prefer to eat at home because it is much more comfortable and you also know which ingredients were used in the food, it is also a lot cheaper than eating or ordering. Chinese and Turkish food is very common in my country, but Italian restaurants can also be found without any problems

I prefer eating at home because my mom always wanted to be a cook and she can make meals like a professional cook. We don't have to worry about food in our home because there is plenty to eat. But if I have to decide where I'd have to eat, I'd decide to go to an exotic restaurant just like Stephen and Ashlie because I love chinese / exotic food. My favourite meals are noodles and chicken. That's why i love chinese restaurants so much because it's the perfect place for noodles and chicken. In my country people prefer normal food like sandwiches, pizzas, sausages, just the usual stuff. But I don't eat chinese food only, like i said my mom can make good meals. Her speacialties are Pumpkin soup and dumplings with special meat sauce. In my school-break time i usually have bread with salami because i don't think it's neseccary to eat a lot in school.

Hello sponge

I personally prefer eating at home. It takes more effort, yes, but I don´t like eating in public. I always feel like people look at the way you eat or what you eat and that makes me uncomfortable. When eating at home you can take all the time in the world to eat, but at a restaurant the waiter comes to check on you all the time and that makes me feel like I need to rush so the next people can eat in at my table

Here in austria italian and chinese is very popular. Turkish food is also very well known. Japanese is certainly popular, but not to the extent of the others listed here

I prefer eating at home. Because homemade foods are healthier and taste better. In my family it's actually my mother who cooks delicious food for us. But I have to mention that I sometimes try cooking new meals by following the steps of a recipe I found on the internet.
My family and I eat out in a restaurant only once a month.

Chinese food or generally Asian food is very popular in my country. Such as sushi, ramen, and many more. People also like Italian food like pizza and pasta. In some cities, the majority eats kebab which is well-known Turkish food.
