Too Good to Go
The food delivery market may be oversaturated with Grub Hub imitations and upscale takeout services, but you can add one more app to your list: Too Good to Go is a new company that connects hungry customers with leftover restaurant food. You can easily select a restaurant, order a type of food, and eat for cheap.
As of August 2016, the app is only available in six European countries including the U.K. and Denmark, but it will hopefully be expanding to other countries soon. Meals cost between $2.50 and $5 and feature restaurant leftovers that chefs were unable to use. Ordering from Too Good to Go helps to cut down on waste and saves you from overspending on fancy takeout.[slideshow:
The only downside is that you actually can’t choose your meal: You can order certain categories of food like sushi, dessert, or Thai.
