There’s nothing like kicking off the weekend with a Mexican fiesta and burritos will make the perfect takeaway dish for you to dine on. Traditional Mexican burritos contain only meat and refried beans, however today you can order all sorts of different flavour combinations from your local Mexican takeaway. Make sure you request plenty of salsa, sour cream and guacamole, as they’ll make the dish even more delicious.
2. Butter chicken

It’s a rich dish, perfect for a Friday or Saturday night treat – or any day of the week really!

When it comes to ordering Chinese, there’s nothing better than crispy aromatic duck. The duck is marinated in five-spice and deep fried until its crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. It’s then piled into pancakes with an accompaniment of sweet and salty hoisin sauce.
With such amazing flavours, it’s not hard to see why it’s one of the most popular Chinese dishes.

If you fancy something a little different, why not try Sashimi? This is fresh, raw fish that is sliced very thinly and served uncooked. It’s a traditional Japanese dish that is usually served with radish, pickled ginger, wasabi and soy sauce. It’ll make a great starter before moving onto some sushi.
5. Pork Chow Mein

If you’ve got noodles on the brain, there’s no better choice than pork Chow Mein. Made from noodles, stir-fried vegetables, soy sauce and succulently roasted pork; it’s guaranteed to get the taste buds tingling. Share it as a side dish or choose it as a main course with strictly no sharing!
Of course, if pork isn’t your meat of choice, you can always go for a Beef Chow Mein instead. Most Chinese takeaways also serve other variations like Chicken Chow Mein, Shrimp Chow Mein and Vegetable Chow Mein.
6. Jerk chicken
Love spice? Then jerk chicken is sure to set your taste buds on fire! (Image source: https://goo.gl/BP3yd9 )
When people think of takeaways, they tend to think of Chinese, Indian or pizza but a Jamaican takeaway will be every bit as delicious. Jerk chicken is an amazing takeaway dish that you need to try. The chicken is dry-rubbed or wet marinated with a hot spice mixture (known as Jamaican jerk spice) before being cooked on an open grill. It’s usually served with sides like rice, salad and mixed vegetables.
If you enjoy fiery and smoky flavours, it’ll be the perfect takeaway dish to try.
7. Pad Thai
Do you fancy a Thai takeaway? We highly recommend trying out a good old Pad Thai. This noodle dish is made with stir-fried rice noodles, vegetables, beansprouts, egg, crushed peanuts and garlic. And let us be the first to tell you, the combination of ingredients is spectacular!
Throw in some chicken, prawns or even Tofu and it’ll make for the most amazing takeaway dish.
