2020 has definitely been a landmark year in many ways, and lockdown restrictions across the globe have meant food-delivery has played a more important role in all of our lives than ever before, and we’ve all spent a lot of time at home ordering takeout to satisfy our cravings.
With burgers and burritos taking up almost half the top 10 spots on the global list, it’s clear that we’ve all been turning to comfort foods to tide us through the pandemic. According to a Deliveroo research commissioned by Censuswide of over 1000 Singaporeans, the top three most popular reasons for ordering a takeaway this year were:
As a treat (45%)
To support local restaurants during the pandemic (26%)
Bored of home cooking (24%)
With burgers and burritos taking up almost half the top 10 spots on the global list, it’s clear that we’ve all been turning to comfort foods to tide us through the pandemic.
The Cheeseburger from Five Guys in Dubai takes the top spot in the global list followed by Salmon Pokè from Pokèria by NIMA, Florence and Starbucks’ White Mocha in Kuwait.
In Asia, Hong Kong’s 913茶王 from Tenren’s Tea, and the Wagyu Original Set + Drink from MOS Food were Asia’s most ordered on Deliveroo at 6th and 15th place followed Guzman y Gomez in the 20th spot globally and the most ordered dish in Singapore with its Chicken Burrito Bowl.
Other than comfort foods, customisable and healthy meals seem to be an ongoing trend for Singaporeans with VIOS Regular Bowl from VIOS by Blu Kouzina, Build Your Own Bowl by The Daily Cut, Build Your Own Wraps by SaladStop! and Build Your Bo from Heybo securing spots in Singapore’s top 15 most ordered dishes.
