Curated takeout subscription

Subscription services that deliver packages of random things like liquor samplers, clothes, outdoorsy stuff, etc seem to be all the rage these days. You fill out an initial questionnaire telling it basically what you like, what you don't like, etc and they put together a curated selection of what they think you'll consider to be pleasant surprises. You fill out post-delivery surveys each time telling them what you liked and what you didn't like in the order.

I'd like to see that concept brought to the restaurant takeout scene. You pay a weekly or monthly subscription fee, fill out a survey after each meal telling them what you liked and didn't like, and each time you go they serve you a different meal, taking your previous survey responses into consideration when planning each meal.

       "You can't do that! I run a proper curated business that isn't just a buzzword !" is what many small business owners would say.   

       //You fill out an initial questionnaire telling it basically what you like, what you don't like, etc and they put together a curated selection//   

       Or just tell you that your sophistication is well above our paltry service level and that you should shop elsewhere despite the glossy rhetoric of our web presence.   

       This could be done by a decent chef for at home cooking, but the number of take-out surprises are non existent.   

       Recently I came across the idea of onion bhaji yorkshire puddings done as toad in the hole, and the Chinese breakfast cornish pastie bun naans where also pretty good. That's just me. Maybe other people would like a service that said "Would you like a $10 guacamole ?"

       How does the $10 guacamole dffer from, say, regular pan-fried mole ?

       //regular pan-fried// Is that regular in space (square, pentagonal, hexagonal, tetrahedral) or in time (hourly, daily, weekly)?

       Good idea.... even better if someone hacks it, and a person you don’t like ends up getting extra hot chillies instead of their preferred mildly spiced burrito. [+]

       Yes. 22.4 litres at STP.

       I know the difference between a Fruit de Mer pizza and a Pepperoni pizza - its a few squid.

       A mystical adult "care package" to one's self. I love it.
