Takeout doesn’t have to mean greasy cardboard or ten thousand ketchup packets (though we do love those). Hy’s Steakhouse just launched their new Hy’s at Home menu, offering upscale dishes like beef Wellington, porterhouse steak, and a selection of fresh seafood for takeout. Some menu items come ready-to-eat and others you finish off in your own kitchen or barbecue (you fancy chef, you!). All the tips go to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank (you philanthropist, you!).
