Key Sentence

I don’t like carrots.

ni n ji n wa cho t to

にんじんはちょっと。

One by one

にんじん → carrots
は → no meaning
ちょっと → a bit

Note

ちょっと literally means ‘a bit’, but it doesn’t have the meaning in this sentence. The full sentence could be にんじんはちょっと私の好(この)みにはあいません

Japanese people like this expression instead of にんじんはきらいです。which literally means I dislike carrots because にんじんはちょっと is indirect and sounds much softer than the other one.
