What a time to be alive. The Coronavirus (COVID-19) has taken over the world and completely altered our daily life. All of us have been ordered to stay at home to stay safe. Maybe, like us, you’re feeling a little bit scared and confused right now, and maybe you’re unsure how you can still support local businesses. Even though you can’t go out to eat right now, a lot of restaurants are still open and offering takeout and home delivery options. This is part of a series of take-away guides in Scandinavia. We hope it helps make this time of quarantine a little tastier for you!
Support Your Favorite Local Restaurants!
Restaurants are struggling to survive right now. They have employees and rent to pay, and hardly any income. If we don’t support them today, we might not have them around tomorrow. That’s why takeout is the new eating out! You can support your favorite local restaurants, and also eat better food at home.

The restaurants will get the money now, and you can treat yourself to a nice meal when life is normal again. If you have a reservation now, maybe postpone it instead of canceling. Stay safe out there everyone – and please remember to wash your hands, and practice social distancing.
