2 Quick Tips About いただきます and ごちそうさま

Before people eat foods, they would say something thankful words or what someone feels about foods such “It looks delicious.” for someone who cooks for us. Basically, natives would say いただきます before eating foods and ごちそうさま after eating them. If someone says nothing before eating foods and after eating them, he/she would be impolite. When saying both いただきます and ごちそうさま, basically natives would use putting their palms together. Today, let me introduce what you say before eating foods and after eating them. They are only two patterns.




いただきます

Let’s eat! / Dig in! / It looks delicious. / Bon appétit

When eating, not only Japanese but people from all over the countries are going to say something such as “Let’s eat!”. いただきます has two thankful meanings. Firstly, いただきます can be used for people cooking something for you and secondly, for eating foods such as meat, fish, vegetables, fruits and so on. Before saying いただきます, you can put your comments for the foods such as おいそうだね (It looks delicious!). Ranging from children to adults, いだだきます can be used.

Example
たつや
いただきます。 (Let’s eat!) (我开动了。) (잘 먹겠습니다.) (Mời mọi người xơi cơm!)
ゆか
いただきまーす。 (Let’s dig in.) (我开动了。) (잘 먹겠습니다.) (Mời mọi người xơi cơm!)
たつや
いただきます。 (Let the feast begin!) (我开动了。) (잘 먹겠습니다.) (Mời mọi người xơi cơm!)
ゆか
(美味おいしそうだね) いただきまーす。 (They all look delicious!) ((看上去很好吃的样子哦)我要开动啦。) ((맛있겠다) 잘 먹겠습니다.) ((ôi nhìn ngon thế) mời mọi người ăn cơm.)

ごちそうさま

Thanks for the nice meal. / It was a great dinner. / I’m done!

When writing ごちそうさま as kanji, it would be 御馳走様ごちそうさま. 馳走ごち means “to run around” for buying or gathering the foods a long time ago because there’s no supermarkets at that time. Furthermore means polite language for foods and さま means honorific word for people cooking something for us which were put, that is 御馳走様ごちそうさま or 御馳走様ごちそうさまでした. For your information, 御馳走様ごちそうさまでした is much polite than 御馳走様ごちそうさま.

Example
ゆか
ごちそうさまー。 (Thank you for the wonderful meal.) (谢谢你的招待) (잘 먹었습니다.) (cảm ơn anh đã chiêu đãi /Tôi xin phép thôi!)
たつや
ごちそうさま。 (It was a great dinner.) (谢谢你的招待) ( 잘 먹었습니다.) (cảm ơn anh đã chiêu đãi /Tôi xin phép thôi!)
ゆか
ごちそうさま。 (I’m done!) (谢谢你的招待) (잘 먹었습니다.) (cảm ơn anh đã chiêu đãi /Tôi xin phép thôi!)
たつや
ごちそうさま。 (Thank you very much for treating us.) (谢谢你的招待) (잘 먹었습니다.) (cảm ơn anh đã chiêu đãi /Tôi xin phép thôi!)
ゆか
美味おいしかった! ごちそうさま。 (That was really delicious! Thank you.) ((真好吃!)谢谢招待。) ( (맛있었어!)잘 먹었습니다.) ((bữa ăn ngon quá)cảm ơn đã chiêu đãi tôi nhé/Tôi xin phép thôi!)
