Paging Upper Eastsiders: Fave places for takeout/delivery?

I don't order takeout too often. I generally order pizza from Nick's or Nina's Argentinian. Otherwise, I'll order from Cilantro. Today I tried ordering from Divino Ristorante. We got a Chicken Parm & a Chicken Rollatina with ravioli. It was ok, but not great.

So where are your fave places to order takeout from?

    1. Lechonera El Barrio on 103rd & 3rd Ave. Their $6 lunch specials are a workday blessing. :)

            Second Pio Pio. Also like El Paso Taqueira for Mexican and Tenzan Sushi for Sushi. I've tried Joy Burger Bar and Ottomanelli's for burgers, but I think they taste much better fresh rather than delivered.

          2. For dim sum we like Cafe Evergreen at 69th and 1st. Other food is not exciting , but generally, good quality and well prepared. Vermicelli on 77th and 2nd has some good Vietnamese. Daksin's tandoori chicken is pretty good.
