When was the last time you left a restaurant without a box or bag of leftovers? Many restaurants serve very large portions. Pizza and Chinese cuisine? We’ve all mastered that. But what about other types of food? When thinking about all that extra food, there are some things to consider. Does the food you are ordering make good leftovers you will actually eat? A giant burger may sound like a great deal, but a rewarmed half burger usually has dry meat and a soggy bun. Something like lasagne, on the other hand, reheats nicely. If you’re not going to eat the leftovers, you are just throwing money away. Instead, order something smaller (and probably less expensive) or split a large entree with another willing diner. If you re4aly want a burger, check the appetizer menu for a trio of sliders — smaller and cheaper than the mega-burger and maybe you can eat it all. If you’re getting a salad, order it with dressing on the side and ask for the to-go container up front. Divide it in half and don’t dress the part that goes into the box. Otherwise, you’ll have wilted salad for tomorrow’s lunch. Just thinking ahead a bit can save you big bucks when dining out and taking the rest to ;go.
