Is my code okay? Do.. while loops?

Hey guys! I just finished the 'do, while loops' and I am not sure that this code is good enough? How would you improve it? Thanks for help! :)

var drink;
var food;
var answer=false;

do{
  drink=prompt('What do you want to drink sir?');
  food=prompt('What do you want to eat sir?');
  answer=true;
//If the prompt is empty, than answer stays false
  if (drink===''){
    alert('Type something to drink!');
    answer=false;
  }else if(food===''){
    alert('Type something to eat!');
    answer=false;
  }

}while(!answer)
  document.write('You have ordered ' + drink + ' and ' + food);

That's pretty good, now build a more complex program that takes your customers order, and spits back a total price for the goods requested.

Build an array of items and prices, then test the user input against the items in the array to calculate the total. :)
