Chances are you won’t be in the mood to cook dinners this week before Thursday’s feast. And sure, you’d love to drop everything and go out to eat, but that green-bean casserole and mound of sweet potatoes aren’t going to prepare themselves. But there’s no need to resort to frozen dinners. Instead, pick up a take-out menu and rejoice because we live in a world where delicious food will come right to your door.

Farm and Fisherman Tavern & Market
Those near Cherry Hill are lucky to have the newly opened Farm and Fisherman, The sister location of this popular Philly BYOB just opened on the other side of the bridge, with a full market for all your on-the-go needs from snout-to-tail pro Chef Josh Lawler.

Chili Szechuan
It’s sad but true: West Philly lacks great pizza. But the other standard for delivery is Chinese food, which this ‘hood definitely has. Chili Szechuan makes authentic spicy, dry pepper and dry pot style food. For those who are afraid to wander too far from General Tso’s chicken, cast your eyes towards the section of the take-out menu dubbed “Americanized.”
4626 Baltimore Ave., 215-662-0888, www.chiliszechuanphilly.com

Soup Kitchen Cafe
Hey, that’s great that you have a day off of work before the holiday. Oh wait, that day is dedicated to cooking, cleaning, and last-minute shopping, isn’t it? If you’re in the “Port Fishington” area, start your day at Soup Kitchen with excellent coffee, savory shakshuka breakfast, salads and meatloaf like Mom used to make.
2146 E. Susquehanna Ave., 215-427-1680, www.soupkitchencafe.com

Fu-wah Mini Market
Just need a quick sandwich? This is one of West Philly’s most beloved go-tos for to-go grub. The cramped bodega makes tofu and Vietnamese pork hoagies that make you wish every night was take-out night. We suggest you call ahead of time if you’re getting more than a sandwich or two.
