With many restaurants closed for indoor dining and winter now truly in full swing, getting takeout has become a welcomed weekly ritual for many. After a long day of work, it's normal to look forward to ordering in a cozy meal, sinking into the couch, and relaxing for a night of binge-watching. That is, if you can decide what you want to eat in the first place.
Since there are tons of restaurants, delivery apps, and downright delicious choices, it's easy to get overwhelmed. So to help you decide once and for all (or at least for tonight!), we're turning to the one thing that may just know you better than you know yourself: your zodiac sign.

Whether you're a fiery Aries, a sweet Pisces or an outgoing Gemini, there's a tasty Nando's PERi-PERi dish that's perfect for your zodiac sign. You can finally end the "I don't know, what do you want to eat?" debate.

You pair well with Extra Hot PERi-PERi Chicken Wings. Marinated for 24 hours and flame-grilled to order, this dish is as spicy and authentic as you are.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): Garlic Bread
Why You Need To Order It: Of all the signs, you're the most compassionate and nurturing, so it only makes sense that your meals should bring you comfort. When it comes to takeout, Cancers prefer food that's hearty and filling, like Nando's warm, soft, and oh-so-comforting Garlic Bread.
Pair this stone-baked Portuguese roll smothered in garlic-and-herb spread with a rom-com and you have the ultimate Friday night for the naturally introverted and sentimental Cancer.
