Those who want to eat a good meal may choose to eat at restaurants or food stands, but I prefer to eat at home from the following perspectives; cost, and atmosphere.
To begin with, the cost of eating at home is highly competitive than that of restaurants or food stands. It is obvious that in restaurant, professional chef makes a meal, resulting in imposing higher cost on customers. The home dinner, however, clearly curtails the cost since we purchase a food material at supermarkets and cook a meal by ourselves at home. My thirst for sushi, famous Japanese food, vividly illustrates above formula. Sushi is notorious in its expensiveness. The sushi restaurant at Ginza, one of the most expensive districts at Tokyo, costs us around four hundreds dollars for me and my wife, while at home twenty dollars is enough to serve sushi course which I buy at supermarkets. The total cost of sushi at home is almost less than tenth that of restaurants at Ginza.
Second, the advantage of home dinner is its closed atmosphere. Nobody cannot hinder the dinner at home, while we have to take care of other eyes or conversation at dinner of restaurants. In home, we can completely focus on family's conversation, but at restaurants, we are frustrated by the conversation of other people. When I have some worries, I always consults with my family at home, because nobody disturbs our conversation. The more serious the topic is, the more I talk with my family about this topic at home. Clearly, the atmosphere at home dinner is preferable for the conversation to that of restaurants.
It is true that the taste of a meal at restaurant is delicious, because professional team serves the food for you. However, do you think the dinner cooked by your mother make you feel awful? Your mother’s home meal you accustomed to most makes you feel warm most, After all, there is no dishes at restaurants surpassing the taste of your mother..
If we consider the cost and atmosphere, home dinner will be best choice for you according to above reason. Therefore, I prefer to eat at home.Read more
