Sample Answer 1
Here is the sample for “describe a special and memorable meal you have had” topic
I am not a huge food connoisseur; however, I’ve taken a shine to try a diverse fusion of food items. So, last weekend, I went to Delhi to explore newly-opened restaurants and cafes at Connaught Place. While reconnoitring, I came across Cha Bar. It is located inside a bookstore and has an extensive range of salads, tea and delectable snacks.
I was drawn towards its interiors as well. Thus, I called up a friend and arranged a meeting after years. Once there, we ordered a Gulab Jamun Cheesecake and a Tiramisu. To begin with, none of us had imagined that we would get to try such a fusion and combination.
At first, I was a bit sceptical regarding this order as I didn’t want my money and food to go to waste in case we didn’t like the taste. However, when our order arrived, my friend and I were enthralled with the plating. At the first look, it seemed delightful. When it came to the tasting part, both orders were finger-licking delicious.
We were surprised at the different yet authentic taste of Gulab Jamun Cheesecake. To my surprise, my friend ordered two more of the cheesecake, one to eat there and the other one to take home. Overall, the experience was wonderful and memorable.

The most special meal I’ve ever had in my life was on my Dad’s birthday last year, which was prepared by all of my family members.
The idea was put forward by my sister. We planned to surprise him and by preparing his favourite foods. On that day, my Mom cooked Pho, a Vietnamese beef noodles, while I baked a birthday cake for him. My siblings were in charge of decoration and music. Everything had been done perfectly a little bit earlier before he came home. When he opened the door, he was astonished on seeing a colourful “Happy birthday Daddy” banner stuck on the wall in the living room. Standing in front, my Mom gave him a bouquet of red roses, his favourite flowers. We enjoyed the scrumptious meal and shared our best memories with my Dad.
After washing the dishes, we gathered in the living room. My Dad made a wish and blew candles. He was in tears and told that he was over the moon and he was proud of us, his home and his family. We gave each other huge hugs before going to sleep.
