Oh, I left out a crucial {be'} in those three phrases. I meant {bIje''eghbe'chugh vaj bIHegh}. I guess {bIje'be''eghchugh} would be more grammatically appropriate, but it sounds less like the other phrases.

It seems like a reasonable thing a restaurant proprietor might tell you, and is also more self-evidently true than the other two.
