Mystery solved!/Загадка разгадана!

In my one of my previous posts I wrote that there are machines to order food that are hard to figure out if you don't know any Japanese. Well, I took a second look at it and it turns out that not all the hope is lost. The bigger picture of the machne is below. They have pictures of the food in sections, and the buttons below pictures ask you for the size. For example, let's look at the two sets of the "L-M-S" buttons on the left, under the picture of some dish (which, in turn, is under the sign on the yellow background). The leftmost column, as far as I can tell, is just that dish, but the column to the right of it is the dish with fixings, that is my guess. I base my guess on the fact that the prices in the right column are a bit higher and there is some writing to the right of the letter L (and M, and S), and the writing says "setto", which is translated as "set." I tried ordering the food, and I will post separately as to how it was.

В одной из предыдущих записей я писал что есть машины заказа еды возле ресторана быстрого питания, и что практически невозможно заказать еду если не знаешь японского языка. Я пригляделся к этой машине, и оказывается не все так сложно. На картинке внизу эта машина. Там меню в виде фотографий, а кнопки с надписями всего лишь для указания размера выбора. Для примера возмем 2 столбца красных кнопок слева с надписями "L-M-S", которые расположены под фотографией блюда (а фотография блюда, в свою очередь находится под табличкой на желтом фоне). Левая колонка кнопок это, как мне кажется, просто блюдо, а правая колонка -- то же самое блюдо, но с дополнительными штучками. Я обосновываю свою догадку на том факте что цены на кнопках в левой колонке дешевле чем в правой, и на кнопках в правой колонке еще по-японски написано "сетто", что означает по-английски set, и по-русски "набор". Я воспользовался машиной, расскажу отдельно про то, что из этого вышло.
