Today, I'd like to talk about people's lunch habit in US. As a food lover, the type of person who would appreciate six meals a day, I always treat lunch as one of the most important things during the day. However, I later found out that things are so different in US.

不想称自己为吃货,不过我却是属于每天想要吃6顿饭的人群,尤其在国内有那么多好吃的东西可以选。不过,到美国后,一切都不同了...

As an example, just share my today's lunch as an example. Panera is a very popular restaurant known for its healthy American food. When I was there for the first time, I was having problem of knowing what to order, so as my friends. Now, it becomes way easier. Anyway, this happened to be my lunch place today.

以我今天的午餐为例。今天去了Panera,一个非常受欢迎的地方,那里的面包非常非常棒,餐品的种类也以健康美味著称。记得刚去美国的时候去那里不会点餐,当时点了一个沙拉我超级不喜欢。现在总能在那儿找到喜欢吃的其他东西。

One thing Panera is known for - bread. Their motto is that everything starts with bread. See those fancy and decent bread of different types on the side? This is lunch time, so usually there is a long queue. Most people usually get a sandwich or salad for takeaway or eat-in. 

午餐的时候一般都会有比较长的队子,今天我去的巧,人不算多。看到左边柜子里面各种面包了吧。Panera的宣传语就是一切从面包开始。

Lunch can be really quiet. Some people take friends together, some just sit and eat by themselves. It is really common that people sit and eat alone.

有人会和朋友同事简单地吃个饭,而一个人坐在床边吃饭也是很常见的事情。在美国,午餐的时候单独吃是再正常不过的了。还记得以前在国内自己一个人吃饭总觉得挺孤单的,现在一点都不觉得了。不过晚餐就另当别论了。

我的午餐是火鸡培根三明治,Panera特色的面包,和一碗新英格兰蛤蜊浓汤,很简单,很美味,我觉得应该也比较健康。和国内的美味叉烧是没法比了,不过不得不习惯这里的饮食,就要适当降低下思念家乡美食的标准了...

Ok, my lunch today is the sandwich called "Turkey&Bacon Bravo", a piece of Panera signature bread and the New England Clam Chowder(the soup). And they all taste really good....

出口的地方有热水,和各种不同口味的咖啡。顺便提一下,如果你在店里吃,用店里的杯子喝咖啡,是可以无限续杯的。我不是咖啡迷,但是相信一定有人很喜欢这一点吧!咖啡壶上的标签有时间,我猜可能是咖啡煮好的时间,都在20分钟以内,算比较新鲜吧!
Ok, now on the way out, it is different types of drink. Let me explain the label: Hot Water, Light Roast, Decaffeinated, Dark Roasted and Hazelnut. The last four are different kinds of coffee. By the way, if you use the cup Panera provided, you can have as much coffee as you wanted. I am not a coffee fan, but I am sure some of you will like this.


I am not sure what the time on the label is for. Guess it is the exact time when the coffee is brewed, mostly less than 20min ago,really fresh!


大多数美国人工作日的时候都习惯很快速地点餐,吃完就走。(注意快速午餐不是快餐噢)学校里的学生很多会从家里带速冻的东西过来很快解决午餐,工作的人会就近点三明治或者沙拉,大多数时候都不到30分钟,尽管公司会给1个小时的午餐时间。很忙的时候,有的人会边忙别的事或者边走边吃。记得以前暑期实习的时候,公司有个人个挺大的居然午餐就吃个苹果,还有人就吃点草莓加酸奶,并且是男士噢,根本不存在控制体重之类的原因。也许因为工作忙,也许这就是美利坚很简单的一个习惯吧。

Most people in US are used to the term: quick lunch. As my American colleagues usually ask me:" Wanna grab lunch?" As you can tell from the word "grab", it is supposed to be a quick thing, sometimes no longer than 30 min. Some of them actually just get a sandwich and eat it on the go. Maybe it is out of the reason that work life is hectic or maybe it is just a simple habit.

今天的节目到此结束,敬请期待下期,我们的故事继续!
