Despite calls for healthier eating, we Brits remain staunch in our loyalty towards takeaway food. Sure, it may not be an every day choice, but whether it’s once a week or once a month, treating ourselves to a chippy tea or Chinese meal remains one of our favorite pastimes.
But which takeaway is our favorite? Are we still chip obsessed after 150 years? Have the major curry centers in cities like Birmingham and Manchester put Indian at the top of our list? How about pizza or Chinese?
Here are the top takeaway options:
Chinese – According to research, Chinese food is now the nation’s favorite takeaway option. The most popular takeaway dishes are apparently Sweet and Sour Pork; Chow Mein and Peking Duck.
Indian – Another hot favorite (see what we did, there?) is the curry, with many now considering it the national dish. With dishes like Chicken Tikka Korma, rogan josh, and tandoori specialties, it’s no wonder that’s the case.
Chippy – After 150 years of being the nation’s favorite dish, is fish and chips no more? Of course not. According to recent studies, 20 per cent of all Friday takeaways are from the local chip shop, so there’s plenty of life yet.
Pizza – With endless topping choices and easy-to-share sizes, pizza remains a popular part of British culture.
Kebab – Come to the end of a night on the town, people who traditionally don’t eat kebabs find themselves drawn to the nearest takeaway facility to order a doner kebab.
Fast-food – McDonald’s, Burger King, KFC, and many more besides continue to thrive with their offerings of (mostly) fried meals.
