As an air sign, variety and trying out new things are second nature to Gemini, and this applies to your taste in food.

You'll get the opportunity to try something new while still indulging in an old favorite.
Cancer is a creature of comfort. After a stressful week, nothing is better than cozying up at home.

Libra: Burger and Fries
This one might seem like a shock for Libra since you're often perceived as someone with elevated tastes. However, as the sign of the scales, you know life is all about balance. For every five-star restaurant you have saved in your "places to go" tab, there's also a small family-run spot you've been dying to check out. And chances are if you're not going out and meeting friends for a meal, something's got you in a funk. Embrace your hermit mode and opt for a tried-and-true classic like a burger and fries. You can't go wrong with this comforting meal, and it'll give you an excuse to try a new spot.
Unlike other signs that struggle to make up their mind, you're quite determined and decisive. You don't shy away from speaking your mind, however, as a water sign, you tend to use subtle communication and energy to influence those around you. Indian takeout is deep and full of rich, complex flavors that will leave you guessing until the very last bite. Does this mysteriousness and intensity sound familiar, Scorpio?

It's a surprise you're home long enough to order in, Sagittarius! Between your many hobbies, friend groups, and world travels, there are some nights you're barely getting in bed. But you don't mind. You love stepping outside your comfort zone and having new experiences. The next time you find yourself hosting friends, order some tapas for an international snack. These delicious bites are meant to be passed and shared, which gives you the chance to sample a little bit of everything while making lifelong memories with your pals.
Capricorn: Salads and Wraps
For someone like you, Capricorn, ordering takeout is more about convenience than indulgence. You're pretty particular about your tastes, and more often than not, you either cook for yourself or you stick to one of a handful of restaurants. However, if you ever find yourself itching to try something new, chances are you're not going to stray too far. And for a health nut like you, the best choice is a salad or wrap from your local cafe. An added benefit is these can be transported and eaten on the go, giving you plenty of time to get back to conquering the world.

Aquarius: Late-Night Munchies
You love your alone time, Aquarius. It's not because you're anti-social, rather it's due to spending so much of your free time getting involved with the community and your neighbors. Your air sign energy keeps you curious and always on the go, so chances are you're not getting home until very late most nights. And once you finally get your mind to stop running a million miles a minute, you're just looking to kick up your feet. For a night owl like you, late-night munchies from your favorite fast food joint are the way to go. Whether you're in the mood for tacos, burgers, or even cookies–there's an after-hours spot that caters to your mood.
Pisces, you're the master of going with the flow. Empathetic, intuitive, and sweet, you're always willing to compromise to keep the peace in social situations, relationships, and at work. While this makes you very easy to get along with, it also means you don't get your way very often! As a water sign, your ideal night is one of relaxation and serenity. Of course, your perfect escape would be spending time on the beach alongside the ocean waves. But since that's not always an option, why not do the next best thing and treat yourself to sushi? You'll lose yourself in the flavors of your favorite spicy tuna roll or poke bowl.
