    Both are correct, Fuadha, but 'much' doesn't sound natural. And the two mean different things, 'some' is an unspecified amount, and it would be taken to mean a normal amount, the amount one person might eat.

    'much' = a lot, a great amount. If a person wanted more than a normal amount a more natural example would be,

    Could I have two/three/ a few pieces of brown bread?

    I UNDERSTAND FROM THAT, THAT I HAVE TO CHOOSE SOME?
    BUT ARE THEY BOTH GRAMMATICALLY AND MEANINGFULLY CORRECT?

    Of the two choices, 'some' would be the most natural.

    Yes, that they are.
