The most-ordered item on Deliveroo in Manchester is absolutely not what you’re expecting

Surprisingly healthy choices Manchester.

Deliveroo has revealed the top 100 trending dishes across the entire planet, as well as the top 30 trending dishes in the UK this week.

It’s a bit of a ritual for a lot of us to turn to a takeaway after a long week at work (or a long night in the pub).

And there’s always a bit of a debate as to what to actually order from Deliveroo – pizza, curry, Chinese, Thai, burger, or just a box full of waffles?

Well now we know exactly what way people tend to sway in Manchester, and it’s probably not what you’re expecting.

Globally, the Deliveroo 100 report found that a Pita Chawarma dish in Paris took the top spot, with a Chipotle burrito in London coming second.


Edinburgh’s Ting Thai Caravan made the big list too, along with Five Guys, Clucking Oinks and Popeyes.

Deliveroo said that this has been the ‘most eclectic’ top 100 in recent years with people really branching out in their eating habits.


Burritos have dominated in three markets and make up 5% of the global trending dishes, with pizza making up another 4%.

Burgers are still the top overall choice, making up nearly a quarter of the list.

Nowhere in Manchester served a dish that made the top 10 – but we did sneak in to the top 30.


We all know we’ve got some great takeaway options here in the city – just look at our Takeaway Champions series for inspiration – many of them brilliant local independent restaurants.

So who got the top spot? Was it something cool, like Tonkotsu ramen, black daal, or a poke bowl? Not exactly…

Erm. It was bananas.

And that’s not some achingly hip new bar that’s opened in the Northern Quarter. It’s literal bananas.

Specifically, a bunch of five Fairtrade bananas Morrisons.
