Takeaway giant Deliveroo has unveiled its top 100 trending dishes of the year, showing what we've all been buying in 2022 - across both the UK and on a global scale too - titled the 'Deliveroo 100 Report'.

The top 10 trending dishes on Deliveroo for 2022, in order, are:

  • Burrito from Chipotle, London
  • Pad Thai from Ting Thai Caravan, Edinburgh
  • Cheeseburger from Five Guys, London
  • Build Your Own Salad Bowl from atis, London
  • Regular Fried Chicken Strips from Clucking Oinks, York
  • The Spicy Chicken Sandwich from Popeyes, London
  • Perfectly Ripe Avocados from Waitrose, London
  • House Black Daal from Dishoom, London
  • Original Frozen Yogurt from Snog, London
  • Jerk Chicken and Chips from White Men Can't Jerk, London

The Burrito from Chipotle has won the hearts and stomachs of Londoners this year - making it to number one in the UK top ten list. Elsewhere in the UK's top trending ten, Scots have been going mad for a Pad Thai as Ting Thai Caravan takes the silver medal, and The Cheeseburger from Five Guys has once again made it to the top ten list, this year winning bronze.

Office workers in the UK's capital have been taking a healthy turn as they're loving Salad Bowls from atis, and locals up in York have been going crazy for chicken from Clucking Oinks. Londoners are also major chicken fans, with a spicy entry from Popeyes at number six and Jerk Chicken and Chips from White Men Can't Jerk in 10th. It's no surprise that the UK's favourite fruit, the avocado (yes, it's a fruit), has once again taken the reigning grocery medal, with a pack of Avocados from Waitrose sliding up into 7th place, just about overtaking Dishoom's famous House Black Daal.

The report also highlights some interesting trends about how consumers are using the service, as well as just how much. In 2022 in the UK, Deliveroo riders have travelled the equivalent distance of 453 times to the moon and back! The distance was achieved by delivering from over 59,000 restaurants and 7,000 grocery partners.

The most popular delivery requests from Brits this year have been:

  • "No onions please"
  • "No pickles please"
  • "Salt and vinegar please"
  • "No mushrooms please"
  • "No coriander please"

On Valentine's Day, Deliveroo found that customers were leaving gifts until the last moment, as the company saw an 13.36% increase in gifts on Valentine's Day itself compared to the previous two Mondays.

When looking at the most popular trending dishes on a global scale, just two of the UK's most popular dishes made the cut, with the list looking like this:
