Bring Back Flavor from One of Nashville's Best Take Out Spots

It usually starts with a craving. Small at first, but then it's all you can think about until you have it. Maybe it's the Thanksgiving-themed Gobbler sandwich at The Food Company in Green Hills, piled high with turkey, cranberry relish, house-made boursin white cheddar cheese, arugula and red onion on cranberry walnut bread. Or it could be the shrimp vindaloo with potatoes in a tangy sauce of tomatoes and onions at Best of India.  Maybe it's even the Barnyard dog at The Dog of Nashville, which gives a nod to Music City with pulled pork barbecue and creamy coleslaw. Whatever it is, you just have to have it and you're never going to find it in your own kitchen. So fire up the computer or grab your phone and order some carry out. Music City is filled with favorite little takeout spots all over town in all kinds of flavors, so fulfilling whatever craving is a piece of cake. Oh, you can even get that too. Sure, you can grab a table at any of these delicious dine-in spots as well, but some nights you just need to eat at home on your couch. And those are the nights you need takeout most of all.
