Because food delivery is so popular in Korea, there are some local food delivery apps that can help you locate and decide on restaurants with good delivery services in your area.

Hi KP,


Thanks for posting. 거 and 것 have the same meaning, but 거 is a more colloquial phrase and you would not see it in written documents.

Hope this was of help!


Sincerely,

Hi Joanne,


Thank you for posting. Both phrases mean 'bring me the menu'. The only difference is 판, which means 'board' but is used for menus (which in older times were wood boards with the menu written on it).

Hi J Dee,


Thanks for the positive feedback, it means a lot to us! Some of our basic lesson series (Newbie series, ABS S1) also have short dialogue which may be of help, please give it a try!

Hi Tom,


Thanks for posting. Just remember that you don't need a space between 된장 and 찌개.

As for your other question, ~요/이요' is used to make the sentence polite, which is why you would add it after the dish you want to order. If you said '커피 한잔이예요' you would be saying 'this is a cup of coffee', rather than saying 'coffee please'.


Hope this was of help. Please let us know if you have any other inquiries.

Best,

Lyn

Why is it 커피 한 잔이요 and not 커피 한 잔이예요?
