Model Answer:

I think that not very many people in my city knew about “Chucky’s Place” as the restaurant was located a bit far away from the city centre. But, as for me, I liked going to this small place precisely because it was at a remote distance, having the same familiar faces visiting there almost every other day to try their favourite dishes. I liked visiting “Chucky’s Place” mostly to try my favourite ‘Mexican rice with roasted beans’ while trying some sweet delicacies with some “heavenly taste’ as well from time to time.

Having travelled for almost 15 minutes by beating the hectic city traffics in my little old car, when I finally managed to reach one of my most favourite restaurants ever in the countryside, surrounded by the gifts of beautiful nature, I knew that I already had defied the “odds” of dying sooner by living in a city environment that was becoming more and more polluted by every hour. And, when I actually had the “pleasure’ of eating the staple dish of my favourite food place, served with perfectly roasted Mexican beans, freshly-cooked steam rice, and some farm-fresh vegetable salad on the side, I knew that I could probably survive without eating any other meal for the rest of my life, of course, only to find out that I had to visit “my favourite restaurant” after a couple of days, again!

Apart from enjoying my favourite dishes, I loved eating at “Chucky’s Place” because of its clean and quiet atmosphere playing some of my favourite musical tunes in a very low volume unlike many other restaurants in the city. Besides, the staffs there were very much like some “family members” to me who would take great care in serving my favourite dishes just the way I preferred. And, hence I gave it the name “my family restaurant”! The restaurant was like a “food-magnet” to me as long as I worked and lived in that city.
