核心提示:欢迎收听bbc地道英语,今天我们要学习的词组是greasy spoon,它是一个俚语短语,廉价便利小吃店的意思。




diarmuid: i am very happy today feifei. why? because i had my breakfast at my local greasy spoon this morning.

feifei: greasy spoon? 油腻的勺子?这是什么意思,i don't understand. how could you have breakfast at a greasy spoon?

diarmuid: because greasy spoon is a slang phrase.

feifei: slang 俚语。 greasy spoon 是一个俚语短语。

diarmuid: yes, greasy spoon is slang.

feifei: so what does it mean?

diarmuid: a greasy spoon is a name for café that serves cheap meals.

feifei: 我明白了,原来 a greasy spoon is a café 就是一个廉价便利小吃店,这个小店里的吃的要比一般饭馆儿的价钱便宜很多。i have seen lots of these kinds of cafes around britain but i didn’t know they were called greasy spoons.

diarmuid: yes, greasy spoons are very common in the uk. you can find them everywhere.

feifei: but why are they called greasy spoons? 用这个名字来形容一个小吃店好像有点儿不妥吧?

diarmuid: people probably call these cafes greasy spoons because the food they serve there is nearly always fried food.

feifei: 油炸食品 fried food.

diarmuid: yes, i suppose it's a kind of joke. the fried food served in the café is so oily, or greasy, that even the spoons are greasy.

example:

a: where shall we go for lunch? there’s a new health-food restaurant near here.

b: i don't really want to eat salad and vegetables.

a: ok, let’s go to the greasy spoon for a fry-up.

b: mmm, that sounds great. i’m going to have sausage and chips.

feifei: you know, eating at a greasy spoon doesn't sound very healthy to me.

diarmuid: i think you're probably right there. you shouldn't eat at a greasy spoon every day.

feifei: 每天都吃油炸食品对身体是非常不好的。

diarmuid: mmm, the problem is the food from a greasy spoon tastes good to me.

feifei: i know. why does unhealthy food always taste so good?

diarmuid: that's a question for another day feifei. for now it's time to go.
