Hello, welcome to Pig&Salt. Have you guys been here before?
No, it's our first time.
And I have a few things to explain to you.
We do small plate family-style tapas here
which means that all of our dishes are just tiny bite-sized amounts of food meant to be shared among 8 people.
So everyone only gets a half bite of the food?
No, someone will always eat more than their share.
Interesting. Now, tell me, are your dishes composed of 5 discrete bites of food,
like 5 scallops in a delicate tower of garnishes for instance?
Yes, always 5 or some other prime number.
Even though they're meant to be shared.
That's right. Although some of our dishes are just large bowls of sauce
which as you can imagine are hard to distribute on those tiny share plates.
So for those you'll just pass them back and forth
or you can awkwardly sit and watch your partner eat while you wait.
Now, how many dished do you recommend for just the two of us?
Oh, it totally depends how hungry you are.
Are you hungry?
Oh, yes, we're at dinner.
I see. Then I'd say 5-18 dishes.
Although this tiny table will only fit 3.
Sounds like a lot.
Oh, actually most of our dishes are quite small.
As you can see the known supper, it's actually just a dewdrop served on an acorn.
Do you have anything a little heartier?
Yes, there is one item on our menu that's fuckin' enormous
but I won't tell you which one that is.
Alright, well, sounds like we have some decisions to make.
Well, before you do, I'd love to test your memory by rattling off the specials.
We have 3 specials tonight, but you're not gonna be able to tell when I'm finished describing the first one and moving on to the second.
We're serving a bruised squid covered in kumquat pollen and Potocki mushroom broth
and ramps and andhovies and halibut in a lemon cream sauce.
Those are the first two. And then we also have a build-your-own dish which is fun at first.
That looks nice. Can I ask how much that is?
You can, but I'm goona think you're a cheapskate if you don't end up ordering it.
Perfect. I think we might need a minute or two before we decide.
Great. Can we start you off with any drinks while you wait?
Yes, what's the bachelor martini?
All of our drink are just classic cocktails with one weird liquor.
Woo... I'll have one of those and then googlebots are on my phone after you leave
so I don't have to admit ignorance.
And I will have the carafe of wine that inexplicably cost the same as a full bottle.
It's an excellent choice. I will be right back with them.
Great. Thank you.
Oh, one last thing, will you bring out our dishes in a completely random order?
Of course. We will serve 4 dishes in rapid succession and then salad at last.
Great. Thank you.
Okay, forward to this....

1be composed of 00:28
A be composed of B 為「A 由 B 組成」,在這裡,A 是一個大範圍,B 為小範圍,所以影片中的句子 “Are your dishes composed of five discrete bites of food?” 大範圍就是餐點,而小範圍是五小口食物。另外有幾個同義詞, A consist of B / A made up of B / A include B 都有「由...組成、包含」的意思。

2garnish 0:33
garnish 這個字為名詞的「裝飾品、配菜」,或是當動詞的「裝飾、加配菜」之意。和garnish 相似的 decoration 也是裝飾的意思,但是較特別的是 garnish 是菜餚的擺盤
,且是可以食用的配菜,而 decoration 的裝飾是不能食用的,單純好看的裝飾。另外,garnish 常見用法為 garnish + with + 配菜材料。
I always garnish the cuisine with fruit slices or nuts.

4rattle off 01:33
影片中可以清楚的理解 rattle off 為「急促地講完、背誦」的意思,因為女服務生非常快速地的講完所有的話,或者是形容一個人可以「不加思索地說出」或「一口氣寫出」一些話語或一篇文章。
To get higher scores, being able to memorize and rattle off the poems are required.

5cheapskate 2:00
cheapskate 就是我們中文所說的「小氣鬼、吝嗇鬼」。cheap 為形容詞「便宜的」,因此 cheapskate 用來形容那些凡事以省錢為主、吝嗇的人。另一個形容小氣鬼說法是 penny-pincher,字面意思為「把一分錢捏得緊緊的人」。
Don't ever expect Eugene to pay the bills for you, he's a notorious cheapskate. 你別奢望尤金幫你出錢,他可是出了名的小氣鬼!

看完影片有沒有覺得服務生介紹完餐點後還是讓人一堆黑人問號呢?到底該如何點餐?還有很怕餓到的小 V 真的無法接受一道菜只有一棵橡樹果子...不過的確新奇的東西才能吸引大家來朝聖啊!
