Model Answer:

I am grateful to you for this nice topic. I will try to tell you about a food court where I have been to several times and enjoyed the food and service they provide. I often meet my friends at this very place and I believe it is quite popular among the local residents.

To begin with, this food court is on the sixth floor of a shopping complex which is only 15 minutes drive away from my living place. So naturally, it is easy for me to reach there whenever I want!

These days, food courts and fast food shops are springing up all over the place - they are even spreading across the residential area and are quite famous among local inhabitants. The food court I am talking about occupies the entire 6th floor and has more than 25 stalls selling all sorts of local food, international cuisine, different types of deserts and drinks.

Last month I went there with two of my friends to enjoy a meal and we had a large pizza and a few glasses of smoothies. Different stalls in this food court mainly offer rice, fish, chicken, mutton, naan roti, kebab, soups, spring onions, and a variety of sushi as traditional Chinese cuisine, and different other western food. Pizza and steak are perhaps famous among youngsters and rice & soup among adults. These shops open early in the morning and serve food to customers till 10.00 pm.

This place looks like any other traditional food court in our city but it has a far better sitting arrangement. All these shops give free samples to attract new customers and they often offer a special menu to regular customers. From a distance, it looks packed, especially during the lunch hours, but once you're there to enjoy your meal, you will notice a vibrant and lively vibe, full of young people enjoying their food and their animated conversations.

From the number of people go there each day, one can say that it is quite a popular food court. If you are ever there, the busy waiters and the sound of the cash registers would give you an impression that a large number of people like to have their meals at this place. Foreign tourists who like to enjoy local food at a reasonable price often pick this location, perhaps they find this place from Google Local and Foursquare. From my experience, I can say that it’s a popular place to enjoy meals and drinks and to hang out with friends.
