Eat at home
Some people like to eat at home, but I prefer to eat at food stands or restaurants for several reasons.
First, you can try a variety of foods if you eat out. I like eating new things, so I always try characteristic foods when I go on a trip. These days we can have some ethnic foods in our neighborhood. For example, I have gotten a new Indian restaurant near the station I use for commuting. Last week I went there after school, and had Indian curry for dinner. The taste was so spicy that I thought I couldn’t imitate the taste by myself. This experience indicates that eating out lets you try such a food you can’t make at home.
Second, some restaurants have a great view. For example, I had lunch at a restaurant in a skyscraper with my family last month. The restaurant was located on high floor of the building, so the view from our table was incredible. We could see the sea, mountains, including Mt.Fuji, which is the highest mountain in Japan, and the beautiful sky. If I had had lunch at home at that time, I couldn’t have seen such a beautiful scene. As the example above illustrates, eating out lets you visit a restaurant with a good view.
Thus, I definitely prefer eating out to eating at home.
