Yes, perhaps....

I've had countless takeaways and have saved leftovers many times for the next day. I am pretty sure that I've never had a case of food poisoning as a result. Not saying it can't happen, of course, but you could eat a piping hot plate of food at any restaurant and still come away with food poisoning, certainly not a huge thing to worry about.

Well apparently it is, we've got six pages of people banging on about how horrible it is that British people don't take leftovers home ...

Just being good citizens, keeping BE alive & kicking... what I mean is, it is possible to bang on for pages and actually not give a fl**ng fÜçk about the topic!

After one has passed the port, can one safely take it home?

One? Remember, only the gentlemen remain at the table when the port is circulating. The ladies will have withdrawn.

I can usually finish what I order, never been an issue.

Raw rice may contain spores of bacteria called Bacillus cereus. These spores form to protect the bacteria from heat and other outside influences, and they aren’t easily destroyed - even by cooking. Even though Bacillus cereus spores aren’t readily eliminated by cooking, eating rice is unlikely to cause food poisoning if the rice is kept hot before serving - and not allowed to sit around on a counter at room temperature. If this happens, the spores can germinate into active bacteria. For this reason, rice should always be served immediately after it’s prepared.
Wow. How does that figure for sushi?

I think it's OK if kept cold. It's when it hangs around at room temperature.
