La semana pasada, visite un restaurante nuevo en mi pueblo con dos de mis amigos. “Sofrito” era un restaurante de comida de Puerto Rico. Fuimos a cenar porque Maria era demasiado ocupada para que almorzar. El restaurante era pequeño pero confortable. La mesera era simpática y joven. Nuestro mesa era cerca de la ventanilla. Ella nos preguntó qué desean pedir, y dijimos, “Qué nos recomienda?”. La mesera nos dijo la especialidad de la casa fue pollo asado con frijoles. Alberto no come carne, y el pidió arroz con habichuelas y tostones. Maria pidió empanadas, y yo pedí la especialidad de la casa. Cuando terminamos comer, la mesera tomó nuestros cubiertos, nuestras servilletas, y nuestros platos. Entonces, nosotros pedimos postres. Alberto comió helado, Maria comió un pastel, y yo come un bol de fruta con uvas, fresas, y cerezas. Nosotros nos los encantamos. Después de comer, la mesera nos dio el cheque, y nosotros le dimos una propina grande. Nos divertimos y decidimos reunirnos mas pronto.

Would there be a clearer way to say this?
