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.

Hello Tran Ngoc

You're right! That was a mistake, which is now corrected.

Thanks very much for pointing this out to us and I'm sorry for the confusion.

All the best

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.
