In English there is an idiomatic noun sense of "regular" for a regular customer. Somebody who regularly dines/drinks/etc at the same café/restaurant/bar/etc:
- That guy is a regular, he comes here every Saturday and orders the same thing.
In the same context there is another idiomatic sense of "usual" which refers to the same meal/drink/etc that such patrons habitually order.
- Hi Barry, do you just want the usual today?
Are there direct equivalents in Chinese. If I'm a regular at a place is there a friendly/casual way to arrive and order "the usual"?
I know there's a dozen ways to say each even if there's not an idiom of course but I'm wondering if there are idioms as there are in some languages.
