Everyone eats! But some people like to explore and find different kinds of foods to try more than others. Foodies are obsessed with finding new dishes to try and eating at the best restaurants.

Foodies want to know everything about what they will eat, from where the ingredients came from to how the meal is cooked. Eating a meal can be an interesting experience when you think about all of the work and people involved in making the dishes.

Kellie is obsessed with interesting foods, but Sara prefers more simple food. Find out more in today’s English lesson about trying new restaurants.

Sara_R:  Hey, Kellie. So, I heard you’re a foodie.

Kellie:  I am. I’m kind of obsessed with trying new restaurants. How about you? Are you a foodie?

Sara_R:  No. I am not. I tend to stick with comfort foods.

Kellie:  So, you don’t like to try gourmet meals?

Sara_R:  Not really. I stick to some of the same dishes that I always like. My favorite things are like a grilled cheese sandwich. With those simple ingredients of bread and cheese. That’s my favorite. I’m not really into gourmet dishes.

Kellie:  So you don’t like anything trendy?

Sara_R:  Not so much. I’m open to trying new things, but not too many new things. Well, let’s go to one sometime.

Kellie:  OK. I would love that. We’ll try some new dishes too.

Sara_R:  That would be good. That would be fun. Open up my world.

Kellie is a foodie and she loves trying new restaurants. She likes to try and learn about trendy new foods. But not everyone shares her same excitement about new dishes.

Sara likes to eat the same comfort foods all the time. Even though she is open to trying new foods, she’s still a little worried that she might not like them. But she has agreed to try a new restaurant with Kellie. Who knows? Maybe Sara will become a foodie, too.

Are you a foodie? Do you like trying new dishes?

I hope I do not spoil things for you guys! :) I do have a huge problem with this here so often used f-word. I know slang words are proudly used and they have a life of their own. I just don’t know why I have this big dislike for what I find a rather demeaning term  for something as nice as eating. I for sure will not add it to my vocabulary let alone use it to label myself as a conscious eater :))

Hi Princesse,


I have also heard this concept.


Sometimes I feel sad when I think of my pet dog which died when I was 12 years old. Other than that, I’m a very happy person. LOL

S11211s, the pepper I tried doesn’t effect the stamoch, but the nose. It’s very funny feeling after eating it:))) it reminded me about itself the whole day:)) and made me laugh very loud in the car:)) that the drivers looked at me very strangly. Looks like I’m a foodie since for the first time tasted bravely unknown product. :))

Today’s lesson was very interesting. There are a lot of foodies in my word, but most of foodies just like experience different dishs. I think foodies’s title is who can cook gourment food which they had experience testing.

Dear Julito,


What my mother says is true. I’m not a person who eats to live like our friend La Princesse from Egypt. I’m someone who lives to eat. 


Take care!

Umm, I’m a bit like Sara, I like to stick to the traditional dishes I’m used to, and I mostly like comfort foods that don’t require time or any complications to be made.


And I’m not a foodie. I’m usually open to try new things, but not when it comes to foods.


For me, food is here to build our bodies and give us power when it’s burned inside the stomach xD And a typical meal is that one gives me calcium, protein and vitamins all together :)) So, I’m that person that eats to live and remain energized..
