In life, we all have our moments of needing one more of something: “One more beer!” “One more bowl!” “One more time!” “One more gold medal!”

Duībuqĭ, wŏ yŏu zài yí gè wènhào. 
is it possible to remove the verb and to say:

Hi Peter,

“再吃一碗(Zài chī yì wǎn)” is an imperative sentence, in which a verb cannot be omitted, so in this sentence, the verb-“吃(chī)” should not be omitted.

In this sentence-送给你吧!(sòng gěi nǐ ba!), “送(sòng)” is the verb, while “给(gěi)” is a preposition.
