Recent research shows us that people in the UK are becoming more adventurous with their food choices, with seven in ten (71%) saying they have tried new dishes and cuisines this year, which is evident from the variety of trending dishes in both the global and UK lists. We’re delighted to see customers sampling – and enjoying – the wealth of food on their doorsteps.”

UK TOP 30 DISHES TRENDS & INSIGHTS 2023 Discovery is on the menu Brits are becoming more adventurous with the type of food they order to their homes, with a third (33%) of the UK’s top 30 list made up of an eclectic mix of cuisines from around the world, including British, Mexican, Indian, Jamaican and Hawaiian and more. In fact, research commissioned by Deliveroo found that over half of Brits (52%) have tried more than three new dishes or cuisines for the first time in the last 12 months. 

Bowling for lunch In the capital, sandwiches are out in favour of healthier ‘build your own bowl’ dishes. Trending amongst office workers, Poké, salad and burrito bowls make up 40% of the UK’s top 10 trending list and 20% of the top 30. Research from Deliveroo backs up the trend with data revealing that bowl food such as Poké, salad or burrito bowls (51%) were more likely to be ordered by Brits for a takeaway lunch than the humble sandwich (37%). 

Clucking mad for chicken Whether fried, in a curry or marinated in a salad, Londoners continue to be the nation’s biggest chicken fans, with over a third (33%) of the top 30 list comprising chicken dishes. Favourite dishes include 8 Pieces Boneless from Wingstop, Chicken Ruby from Dishoom and Harissa Chicken from Farmer J, taking positions six, seven and eight, respectively. In fact, a third of Londoners said they’d most likely order chicken wings if they were ordering takeaway for lunch.  

Demand for rapid grocery delivery increases across the UK The demand for rapid grocery delivery has continued to grow exponentially since its launch on Deliveroo back in lockdown 2020 – so it’s no surprise that there has been a 150% increase in grocery items making the UK list compared to last year (2022). The most popular items in London include bananas from Waitrose and flowers from Wholefoods, whilst elsewhere in the UK, semi-skimmed milk from Morrisons in Birmingham, paracetamol from Boots in Edinburgh and Walkers Sensations from Co-op in Manchester are the top trenders. 

UK-BASED ORDER TRENDS AND INSIGHTS 2023 Deliveroo customers nationwide have continued to turn to the food-delivery app to order just about anything, from pumpkins to Poké bowls, picky bits and everything in between. In fact, the company’s riders have travelled the equivalent of 674 trips from Earth to the moon and back, delivering from over 60,000 best-loved restaurants and 8,000 grocery partners in the UK and Ireland. 

And with lots of orders, come some interesting customer requests… Deliveroo can reveal that Brits are particular when it comes to ordering chicken. Interestingly, the most trending delivery request from the past year is ‘I want all flat wings, please,’ with customers snubbing the humble drum-wing in favour of those which are crispier, easier to eat and best for dipping. 

Other popular chicken-based requests from across the country include; ‘thighs and legs only, please,’ ‘chicken well done, please,’ ‘no legs, please,’ and ‘burn the chicken, please.’  

And chicken is the only thing the nation is picky about, with other British delivery requests including:  

  • *“No tomatoes, please”
  • “Salt and vinegar, please”
  • “Extra spicy, please”
  • “No onions, please”
  • “No mushrooms, please”
  • “No pickles, please” * 

Do you want fries with that? Fries remain the most popular side order across the UK, with London, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and Brighton the biggest lovers of the fried potato. Would you like fries with your sauce? Well, ketchup remains King of the most trending sauces in 2023; garlic mayo has overtaken traditional mayo in the dipping battle, closely followed by chilli sauce.
