Deliveries from restaurants have increased significantly in the last couple of years, but “Insider” spoke to several chefs and have compiled a list of foods to skip…because not all food travels well. Here’s a look:
- French Fries – have a very short shelf life and they get soggy really quickly.
- Omelets and Egg dishes – you’re better off making them at home
- Nachos – also get soggy and mushy.
- Smoothies – don’t maintain their consistency for very long.
- Ice cream – we all know it’s going to melt.
- Food with breaded coating – deep-fried foods loose their crunch.
- Grilled cheese – the cheese is likely to get cold and loose it’s ‘gooeyness’.
- Noodle soups – if the broth is packed separately these could be ok.
- Salmon – can continue to cook in transit, drying it out.
- Sandwiches with creamy fillings – tuna, chicken or egg salad sandwiches are better made at home.
