The rise of food delivery apps has ensured we get to enjoy our favourite dish and restaurant without ever having to leave our couch.
The pandemic and countless lockdowns have also played a major role in the expansion of delivery apps such as Uber Eats and Mr Delivery as countless South Africans satisfy their cravings with the simple click of a button. KFC, Romans Pizza, your favourite local eatery – the options are endless, and there’s no question that food delivery apps are not going anywhere anytime soon.
But just what is the go-to delivery meals for many South Africans?
Well, fledging food delivery app, Bolt Food attempted to answer this very question by doing a deep dive and comparing the food of choice when it comes to South Africa’s two major cities – Johannesburg and Cape Town.
However, the answers may not be that surprising.
According to Bolt Food, Capetonians are sinking their teeth into plenty of fish, while Joburgers are opting for chicken, with roughly nine fish orders for every eleven orders of chicken.
Unsurprisingly, sushi is a winner for many Capetonians, with this delicious meal being ordered almost 100 000 times last year, while Johannesburg has clicked on the sushi option a little over 10 000 times, reports IOL.
While Capetonians are hooked on fish, burgers are still an appetising meal for many. Specifically, the Brocka Cheeseburger from Brocka in Rondebosch, while foodies in Johannesburg played it safe by sticking to a South African classic – the Original Spur Burger, as per My Broadband.
When having the option to choose between Italian and Indian cuisine, Cape Town residents seem to choose Indian food over Italian every time, especially when compared to Joburgrs who order roughly two-thirds more when the Italian craving hits.
Along with this, the food delivery platform also revealed the busiest restaurant in Cape Town, with RocoMamas in Rondebosch coming out on top.
