    We're kind of short of deliverables around here--the suburban equivalent of a food desert--but we do have a few. I should invesiigate Uber Eats.

    But I am not much into deliverables, anyway. I like going out for a good dining experience.

    however, I will confess to spending $$$ in grocery store deli food, which is equivilent to takeout.

    There are a couple retailers who prepare standard American fair and package it and sell it as takeout. By this I mean noodle dishes, I suppose some meat-based dishes, etc. One of them is in a very busy location with a lot of drive-by traffic and it has a fair number of parking spaces right in front of the place for parking, dashing in and dashing out. It is also a bakery. It has been there many years and it seems to do an OK business, since it is also in an expensive suburb.


    But the other one that I see is kind of hidden in an old strip mall and they seem to be struggling.


    I really do not understand what but their business model is because to me, grocery store deli s serve this purpose much better.

    ....
    That used to be us, when there was an us. At this point, I'd rather have my solo dining experience in the comfort of my own home. I did find quite a few restaurants within delivery range--Indian, pan-Asian, Chinese, Thai...I'm cocooning for now.

    ETA: I must have been living under a rock--Amazon has a restaurant delivery service with all kinds of offerings! Bezos for the win!

    Pad Thai
    Sushi
    Roasted vegetable brick oven pizza with extra garlic
    Salmon with roasted potatoes and a salad
    Pot roast with roasted vegetables
    Stuffed cabbage
    Falafel
    Gyro
    Spinach omelet with feta
    Bagel with lox, red onion, capers, and cream cheese
    Eggplant Parmasean
