  Fast Food 快餐食品

  Fast-food chains, American-style, are currently on the increase all over the world.Most of these places work on a similar principle. There is a long counter, above which is displayed a list of the items available, and behind which several people are serving. Individual queues form in front of each assistant. You receive what you order more or less immediately and take it on a tray to a table, picking up thing like straws, peper, salt, ketchup, picklesand napkins on the way. If yo can't see any knives and forks, this means you are supposed to eat with your hands. If you can't see any straws, that's because they are hiding in the straw dispenser that you have to fiddle with the bottom of it to get a strawto emerge. When you've finished, you yourself throw away everything except the tray.

  Many fast-food places have drive-in facilities.You place your order from your car viaa microphone and then drive round to a special window to pay and pick it up. You may even encounter places where a waitress bring your meal out, and you sit and eat it in the car from a tray hooked over the door through the open window.

  You may be asked if your order is "for here"or "to go". In some states there is no sales tax on food consumed.
