"ʻOka au i ke pā mea ʻai Pākē."
Translation:I order the Chinese plate lunch.
NOTE: (ke pā / the plate and ke pākaukau / the table) are exceptions to the rule . Most words that begin with the letter (P) take (ka) / the.
Ke is typically used before words starting with K, E, A, O like ke keiki / the man and ke aliʻi / the ruler.
I enjoyed this prompt. "Lunch" is not a required response. [Plate][food thing][Chinese] makes no reference to lunch. It is simply a Chinese food plate.
This whole course is using common expressions in Hawai'i that people outside of Hawai'i would not automatically know. Plate lunch is one of those expressions. It is a plate of food that you would buy at a cheap eats type of restaurant. So not only are you learning Hawaiian language, you are also learning a bit about the way Hawai'i residents speak English, too.
