Tapau


Tapau ...

Take-out or takeout (in North American, Philippine English), carry-out (in U.S., Scottish English), take-away (in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Hong Kong and Ireland), parcel (in Indian English and Pakistani English), or tapau (in Malaysian English and Singlish—from the Chinese "package it" 打包 da-bao), is food purchased at a restaurant or stall for the purpose of being eaten elsewhere. The restaurant or stall may or may not provide table service. In the United States and Canada, food ordered this way (especially in fast food) is ordered to go, and in England it is ordered to take away or sometimes to eat out, as opposed to eating in or dining in.
