    Cool What are you in the mood for?

    Hello,

    I've heard "what are in the mood for?" for the first time today.

    Can you tell if this is a common expression?

    Thanks a lot
    Will

    It's not rare.

    You could use it if asking what type of restaurant someone would like to go to, for instance.

    You missed out the word "you" when you posted it in the main body of your question, by the way.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    And once you are in the restaurant and you are looking at the menu, you could ask other people in your group the same question in order to ascertain what they are thinking of ordering.
