Carrying on from my article on drinks in Mandarin Chinese: Nǐ hē shénme?, now we are going over what foods you would want.
Nǐ yào shénme? (What do you want?)
You can add ma at the end of the statement to make a specific question.
Nǐ yào niúròu ma? (Do you want…beef?)
Wŏ yào niúròu. (I want beef.)
Bù, wŏ bú yào niúròu. (No, I don’t want beef.)
Wŏ yào shūcài. (I want vegetables.)
Practice talking about what you want, if you are in a Chinese market.
