Delivery or Pick Up Food Spots in downtown area

Ever have those days when you can't decide what to eat. I would like to know of some spots that are out there completely off the radar. I don't want to know about Chinese, Italian, Thai, Greek or Indian (If you are suggesting these cuisines something you normally wouldn't order) Something really out there, that you usually don't get for Delivery or Pick Up. Example would be: sometimes I'll pick up Goulash at the coffee mill or Salmon sandwich from College St.

        When are the chicken fingers fresh? Gotta check that out. Ever have the Progies at Shanghai Cowgirl. Really Tasty! Yeah Bitondo Panzo's kick ass. A friend of mine told me Gato Nero on College makes a mean Panzo.

          Chicken fingers are fresh-made randomly on Thursday and Friday as she prepares for those busier days and Saturday. They are so crisp and the meat is never dried. Ask for a side of babaganouch for dipping and you will be addicted for life! Personally I dont even bother with them once refridgerated - and I never let them throw them in the microwave. You will see many other great treats while there. The chicken cutlet is awesome too. Chicken livers and onions are the best anywhere.

          Perogies are great at Shanghai - agreed - Bella has them too.

          You can get take-out from just about every restaurant in town, even Susur, if you supply your own containers.
