I agree... if the food is not edible when it's purchased, it isn't fast 
food or restaurant food.

I'm favor of rendering shop=food. I think of it as a parallel syntax to 
shop=clothes. A clothes shop can be further described with 
clothes=women, clothes=hats etc. Or =clothes can be replaced with a 
narrower value, like shop=shoes, shop=fashion. Likewise, it makes sense 
to use shop=food (possibly in combination with food=*) if none of the 
more specific food shop tags like deli, convenience, greengrocer, or 
supermarket are a good fit.
