Ordering Chicken Biryani with Your iPad
After a week of cooking, many of us want to let someone else do the work on weekends, and data from the online food-ordering company GrubHub, which serves more than 700 U.S. cities, backs this up: Sunday evening is its busiest time, nationwide. Beware, though, if you're using your tablet or phone to place your order electronically. Research shows we tend to order more food when we're tapping versus talking. One San Francisco online ordering service found that because people can see the entire breadth of menu options online, they tend to throw in more appetizers, salads and other extras. Avoid over-ordering, and also consider searching for coupon codes on sites like RetailMeNot.
