Model Answer 1:
I love all kinds of food items when I am hungry whether I am eating them at home or at a restaurant. But, I come from a family which always prefer eating at home than to eating outside, no matter how good some of the food at restaurants taste. However, my mother doesn’t mind if I eat one particular food item outside of my home since it is called the world-famous “German Chocolate Cake”.

Yes, German chocolate cake is undoubtedly one of my most favourite desserts, if not the most favourite, of all time. Interestingly enough, I don’t like to eat other chocolate cakes, but if it ever comes to eating a very good German chocolate cake, I won’t mind it even if I have to travel miles to eat it. And when I eat it, I never really stop at eating just one piece, but rather I keep eating them until I don’t crave for it anymore.

By the way, I have always asked myself how possibly a person, who doesn’t like chocolate cakes, can enjoy eating a thing called “German chocolate cake”. So, why I like it so much? Well, to appreciate and understand my answer to this question, you actually have to feel the “out of this world” sweet crunch of the Coconut Pecan icing, combined with the not too sweet and not too bitter taste of the German's chocolate, along with the taste of rich creamy buttermilk. Now, where can we get such a perfect combination of sweet, sour, and bitter in a cake mix in order to make one of the most amazing tastes ever made other than in a chocolate cake!

Anyway, I like this particular food item, primarily because the truth is, neither I nor any of my family member is able to bake such a tasty cake at home. Besides, when I go to eat this cake outside, I also get to taste some other delicious food items that help me change my taste from time to time after eating the same kinds of food at home for a long time.


Sample Answer 2:
I like to eat pizza outside the home. Pizza is not made in our house except on a very rare occasion once or twice in a year and that's why I have always eaten it outside my home. Dominos Pizza, Pizza Inn, Helvetia, Tongue & Tommy, Pizzasta are some of my favourite places where I eat pizza.

I like it because it is tasty and delicious. This food item requires only a few minutes to be served and I can eat it when I am in a hurry. Another reason is the variation this food item has. Several types of pizza can be found and because of that, a pizza lover can taste the different types of pizza and variation of those pizzas. It is cheaper compared to other dishes I eat outside. A moderate size pizza can be shared among 3-4 persons. Finally, it is not a very rich food and can be eaten at any time of the day.

I usually eat pizza once in a week and the frequency of eating pizza sometimes depends on the frequency of my meeting my friends in a restaurant who serves pizza. Eating pizza is not occasion dependent like some other dishes like Mexican foods, Italian food etc. I mostly eat pizza when I need a quick meal and when I meet my friends in a restaurant. Since pizza is liked by most of my friends, when we sit together in a place where pizza is served and we need to eat something, we mostly order pizza.
