And what do you say when the delicious Korean food is before you?
- 잘 – Jal
- 먹겠 – Meogess (he’s making more gas…get it?)
- 습 – Seub
- 니다 – Nida
So this phrase 잘먹겠습니다 means “I will enjoy this food”, and in effect means “thank you for the meal”.
You would use this once the food has been served, and before you dig in.
Do you still recall how to compliment the chef?
