I used it because it was not specific for https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/3033173319 <https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/3033173319>

It is selling only one type of food (pierogi) that are relatively easy to prepare but are 

not edible immediately after buying (so it is not takeaway fast food).

I guess that in many cases peopleĀ  were unaware about alternatives or there was no suitable tag

so they decided to use shop=food as generic one.
