FARE SHOPPING/LA SPESA – At the butcher’s – Dal macellaio

Per comprare carne, devi andare dal macellaio. Vediamo come farlo in inglese.

Good morning, madam! What can I get for you?
Woman: I’d like half a kilo of minced meat, please.
Butcher: What kind of meat you prefer? Beef, pork, lamb?
Woman: Beef.
Butcher: Would you like the regular or the extra lean? The extra lean is a bit more expensive.
Woman: I’ll take the regular. Could you also get me four thick pork chops and two chicken breasts?
Butcher: I’m sorry, but we’re out of chicken breasts right now. I can give you some thighs, instead.
Woman: No, thanks. I’ll just take 300 grams of cooked ham. Slice it thinly, please. I’ll also need two steaks.
Butcher: We have T-bone, rib eye, and sirloin steaks. The rib eye is probably the most tender of them all.
Woman: … then I’ll take two of those.
Butcher: Okay, anything else?
Woman: No, I think that’s all for now.
