I also really like to eat Korean food as it’s very….

I’m also kind of partial to Mexican food for the reason that it is……

  1. General to specific (Give an example): 

Well, I’d have to say that I’m a big fan of seafood. In particular, I really like to eat Japanese seafood because it’s always so fresh. For instance, sashimi is delicious because the raw fish is so flavoursome.

If I’m working I prefer to get something like fast food such as McDonalds because……

But, if I’m out with friends I would rather have something more exotic such as Thai food or Indian food.
