Take-out (in American and Canadian English), carry-out(inScottish and American English), parcel (in Indian English)ortake-away (in Australian and British English) is food purchasedata restaurant but eaten elsewhere. The restaurant may or maynotprovide table service. In the United States, food ordered thisway(especially in fast food) is ordered to go, and in theUnitedKingdom is sometimes ordered to eat out, as opposed to eatingin.
Take-out food is often fast food, but not always so. Whereasfastfood carries the connotation of a standardized product fromaglobalized chain or franchise, take-away outlets are oftensmallbusinesses serving traditional food, which can be of highquality.Examples include the neighborhood fish and chip shops inthe UK,Australia or New Zealand; the sandwiches sold by delis inthe U.S.;and the wide range of sausage-based snacks (andincreasinglykebabs) sold from stalls in German cities.
Food that is delivered by a restaurant to a customer (oftencalleddelivery) is also sometimes called take-out; although itmight bemore properly labeled bring-in, it never is. Theestablishment thatsells take-out exclusively (not providing tableservice) is called atake-out restaurant, take-out joint or atake-away.
Certain types of food that are normally served insit-downrestaurants are commonly available as take-out. Pizza isoneexample. While certain pizzeria chains specialize in take-out(ordelivery) to such an extent that they actually have nofacilitiesfor dining on-site (just a kitchen), most have tables andwaitstaff. Even these establishments, however, offer the optionofordering by phone (or, increasingly, by Internet) and takingthefood home (or to whatever other location is desired). Insuchcircumstances, the food and the procedure is commonlycalledcarry-out. Another U.S. classic take-out food isWestern-styledChinese food. Ordering Chinese take-out has reachednear ritualstatus in certain segments of the US population, as wellas theUnited Kingdom, especially college
students. In the past few decades as immigrants from more andmoreAsian countries immigrate to the US, more and more types ofcuisineare being treated in a similar manner: Japanese, Thai,Korean,Vietnamese, etc. In the UK, Indian food is also a popularform oftake-away.
Some businesses have taken a cue from the everincreasingpopularity in take-out, and have created franchises todeliver foodfrom restaurants not normally associated with take-outor delivery.In some areas it is also possible to place orders fortake-out overthe internet.
If it is possible to choose, the choice is between "totakeout"/"to take away" and "to eat in" in the UK and Australia; or"togo" and "for here"/"to stay"/"dine in" in North America.
Take-out from a sit-down restaurant may be purchased to go ormayconsist of centerovers from a meal eaten at table; the containerusedfor centerovers is called a doggie bag (or doggy bag). Insomecountries doggie bags are uncommon, and centerovers usually goto thedump, with the exception of pizza places who will usually putthecenter over pizza in a box at your request. 精彩回顾：Desperate Housewives 1《绝望主妇》1（精讲之一）
