  • This afternoon, my uncle came, so we went to a restaurant to eat lamb. We ate lamb, curry, and ramen for the main meal and had juice, snacks, and popcorn for dessert. The restaurant manager gave us two bottles of juice, which made me happy. The lamb was really delicious, and the curry was sweet. The ramen was really spicy, but I was able to eat it. I want to come eat here again.
