IELTS Essay 14 Volume 6 (V6E14)

Some people prefer to eat at food stands or restaurants. Other people prefer to prepare and eat food at home. Which do you prefer? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

(a) People may have two choices to eat, either they go out to fast food stands or restaurants, or they prepare food at home, whatever suitable to them. In my case I prefer to go out to eat, as it is easy to get, it saves my time, and I can try variety of interesting food of different countries.

Being a working person, with all day long office work and driving long way, it becomes difficult to do all preparation for making food. For me easy way to get food is restaurant, where I can get prepared food at home or office by just ordering on phone, Along with that another comfort is, that whenever I have to eat together with my so many friends, I can always go to a restaurant, otherwise it’s difficult to prepare food at home for so many people and don’t get time to talk and having fun. So I always find it a easier way to eat out, apart from that It make my other outdoor activities possible because I don’t have to bother about food wherever I go, to any fun place or theater or traveling, restaurants are always there throughout city and it becomes easy every time to get food whenever and whenever I need according to other activities.

Besides that I can save a lot of time by getting food from restaurant as, I don’t have to go for vegetables and grocery shopping, I don’t need to clean, cut and fry food and do a lot kitchen work, doing dishes etc., instead I can get fresh food delivered in minutes.

Along with that when I eat at restaurant I have more time to do other things like reading, watching TV, and listening music, going out theatre, or having fun with friends, that don’t make me tired or boring and I feel refreshed for next day work, so by going to restaurant I can manage a lot more activities instead preparing food.

In addition, in restaurant I get a variety of food choice, I can have taste of different regions, for example Indian restaurant I can get varied food from North Indian to South Indian Punjabi, Bengali, Madrasi, Maharashtrian, etc. at one place.

Likewise, I can taste worldwide food variety like pasta dishes in Italian restaurant, tortilla and burrito dishes in Mexican, pizza, and burger items in American, noodles in Chinese, etc. and can enjoy various vegetarian, non-vegetarian dishes which are specialty of different countries.

Not only that, in restaurant the food is served with beautiful garnishing, that tempts for eating and is worth of paying. I find it very interesting to experience varied food in different restaurants.

To conclude I am fond of going stands and restaurants for eating that is suitable for me because of convenient, quick and variety of tasty food, which I enjoy very much and make my routine easier and interesting.

(B)  As people get more and more busy with their life style and career, they tend to go out and eat food from restaurants or other food stall. But I for one still prefer to come home, prepare and eat my food at home.

I have always enjoyed cooking for other people and let them praise me for it. It has been an extra bonus because I find cooking therapeutic as well. After coming from an exhausting day of work from the office, it is fun to be your own boss in the kitchen. I can do whatever I want to do and do not have to ask for any permission or worry about if I am doing everything right. It is the fact that I know what I am good at it makes me feel exuberant.

But apart from this, cooking at home and eating with the rest of the family at the end of the day has been a tradition in the old generation. Traditions that more and more people are forgetting these days. We are so busy with our own lives that we are no longer interested with the lives or our near and dear ones. So I think the best way to catch up with the rest of the family with over a nice pleasant dinner and sipping warm wine.

Eating at one of those classy restaurants means that you have to be dressed properly with black jacket and white shirt. If you go to one of the Chinese restaurants that are just round the corner, it is always noisy when all you want is quite and peace around you. Sometimes the food is not even up to standard; sometimes your favorite dish is not available any more.

Then there is a question of hygiene. How well cooked is the food at the restaurant? Have they been washed properly before cooking? If food is eaten at home, you are sure that it will be cleaned and washed properly because hygiene, to you, is the most important thing.

Even if some people think of cooking as a hassle nowadays, with microwave, oven and other different kitchen gadgets, cooking can be done with no problem at all.

Last but not the least; it’s very cheap when you eat at home. A person might not be able to afford Chinese 30 days a month, and 12 months a year.

So based on all the above-mentioned point, I think it is better to eat at home
