There are two weeks left until Christmas and it’s time to think about dinner for the date. Those who don’t have time or don’t want to spend the night with their bellies in front of the stove have the alternative of ordering a ready-made meal.

Restaurants, rotisseries and bakeries in the capital of São Paulo offer complete suppers or à la carte dishes to be received at home or picked up. There are more traditional options, as well as others with Arabic, Italian recipes and vegetarian and vegan versions.
