Model Answer 1:

Introduction:
I am a bit more cautious about the food and drinks that I intake than most people perhaps because I have some food allergies. However, this mild condition of mine does not deter me from enjoying foods that I love from time to time. Today, for this topic, I would like to describe a really special meal that I want to enjoy.

where you would like to have it:
I would like to enjoy this special meal in the town where I grew up and stayed until my teenage time. It is around 140 kilometres away from our current residence, and we used to live in that town due to my father's job. The town, called "Hillsville", is a beautiful place which is also popular as a tourist destination and for its traditional food. I've enjoyed the meal several times at a restaurant and my father's colleague's house, but this time I am planning to have it at the very restaurant where I enjoyed it in my childhood.

who you would like to have it with:
I will take my parents and younger sister to this town, and I think they would also like to enjoy this special meal with me. If they are not interested, I will still go ahead and enjoy it all by myself.

what you would like to eat:
Well, now comes the fun part - I mean the chance to talk about the actual food! This special meal consists of a mouthwatering sandwich and a specially-made ice cream. The sandwich is called "Lao Baguettes" - which is both healthy and delicious. It consists of chicken breast, peppery watercress, tomatoes, grated fresh carrots and a large portion of spicy chile-garlic sauce. On top of that, I'd have "ais kacang" or "ice kacang"- a kind of savoury ice cream made of shaved ice, red beans, jelly and sweet syrup. This fine ice cream is flavorful and has bright colours with a variety of fruit cocktails and dressings.

and explain how you would feel about the meal:
I have always loved this special menu in my childhood and I guess trying it would bring back some good memories. Moreover, I have tried the exact menu in several other places but they never beat the taste and experience that I have had in Hillsville. So, I am expecting that trying this meal would be a pleasing experience for me.



Sample Answer 2:

In my country, roti and soup, or roti and vegetables, is the most popular meal that people eat almost every day. But we also enjoy some special meals which are mostly cooked on special occasions. For this topic, today, I'll describe a rather common meal that I want to have. Since I live in a city now, away from my hometown, I will like to eat a meal that is specially made in my hometown.

This special meal would be kebab and paratha, and a special curry, and I want the meal to be cooked at my home by none other than my mom. I have travelled to many cities and towns in different parts of the country and tested kebab and paratha with curry, but none tasted as good as the one my mother makes. I am planning to visit my hometown next November, and I want to have this meal at my home.

I love to share food with friends and family, and that's, in fact, a tradition in our country. So, I would rather prefer to have my family members and a couple of my cousins and friends enjoy this special meal with me.

I miss my family and hometown. This is why whenever I get a chance to visit it and my family, I do not waste the opportunity. Moreover, I love the food that my mom cooks and like to enjoy a meal surrounded by my family, relatives and cousins. As a fan of kebab, curry and paratha, I always look forward to enjoying some of them cooked by my mother. So I am very positive that it would bring back some good memories and allow me to enjoy a good time with my family while also devouring some delicious food item that also happens to be my favourite.
