Sample Answer of Describe an Occasion when You Ate Something for the First Time
I have eaten many edible things for the first time before without any attention but I would like to talk about a particular food that caused embarrassment for me which is Shawarma.
I remember one fateful afternoon after a very busy day at work, and five other of my colleagues went to an outlet for lunch. I just came from the village to Lagos city where I freshly got gainful employment. On getting there, four of them requested Shawarma while the fifth demanded a local dish. On my part, I have been hearing of shawarma but I don’t know anything about it not even how it looks like but as a newly inducted guy into the city who wanted to feel among. I just asked the waitress to serve me a rap of shawarma too.
Without wasting time, all my friends were busy eating their spices joyfully while I opened mine but got irritated to see all the chunky inside the pie. I tried to start my eating from the outer layer. While turning it around, I noticed that other people in the eatery were indirectly watching my drama.
To cut the long story short, one of us who were not happy to see the scene went to the canter and ordered a local dish and brought it for me while he told one of the attendants in the outlet to pack it for me while we took it away. Later, the same friend taught me out to eat it and as at today, shawarma is one of my best spices.
Follow-Ups Describe an Occasion when You Ate Something for the First Time
Question 1. Do you like to try new food?
Answer: -It is a good thing to attempt what you have not done before, the same thing is applicable to food. I like to taste any edible stuff that I have not eaten before. However, if it is not ok for me I won’t eat it next time but it would be on record that I have tasted it already. For example, Strawberry; I have tried to eat it before unfortunately, I don’t like how it tastes and since then I don’t eat again.
Question 2. What kinds of foreign foods are popular in your country?
Answer:- In my country, we have many foreign foods but the most famous among them is Chinese rice. Chinese rice is a very delicious food but some people don’t like it probably because of the way it looks once prepared. It’s whitish in appearance but with many ingredients. They sell this food in nearly all the big eateries in my country. We have many Chinese in my country who patronize those shops perhaps that is one of the reasons for its popularity.
Question 3. Do you like to cook at home?
Answer:- I don’t like to eat in the street shops mainly because of the state of hygiene. Some environments where they prepare the foods is very dirty which I don’t like. Because of that, I like to cook and eat at home. Cooking has become part of me and I do cook nicely.
Question 4. Is it expensive to eat out in your country?
Answer:- Yes, it is. It is costly to eat out in Nigeria than to eat in your house. For instance, if you have 3,000 nairas and you go to eat at an eatery, that amount will not satisfy you however, you can use that particular amount to buy all the necessary ingredients and raw for which you can prepare and eat satisfactorily at your home. Indeed, it is extremely costly to go and eat outside compared to staying back home to utilize your money on the food you prepare at home.
Question 5.What’s the difference between Indian food and western food?
Answer:- Hmmm…. I have not been to India neither I have taken their food before so as to be able to clarify between it and western food.

Western foods on the other hand are the categories of food that emanated from the United States and the United Kingdom.
