Deliveroo has unveiled their top 100 dishes around the world from the past year.

With so many cuisines on offer, you’d assume a list of this magnitude would have a lot of variety.

However, it seems that most Brits are content with simply ordering a burger on takeaway night.

Five out of the 10 most popular dishes in the UK were burgers, with a cheeseburger from Five Guys in London nabbing the top spot.

Coming in second in the UK was a chicken katsu curry from Wagamama in London, regarded by many as a classic.

Topping the list worldwide was a Les Fernandines cheeseburger, hailing from Big Fernand in Lille, France. A burrito from Boojum in Dublin came in second with a cheeseburger from Five Guys in London appearing third.

It seems that Brits’ taste in food has changed a bit over the past few years.

In 2014, YouGov carried out a survey to find out the nation’s favourite meal in celebration of the 25th anniversary of BBC Good Food.

While the majority of us may be partial to a cheeseburger every now and then, according to the poll, 42 per cent of Brits would choose a traditional Sunday roast as their ultimate comfort food.

Even though burgers are universally loved as one of the world’s favourite meals, 2017 has been a year of experimentation when it comes to food.

Charcoal became the most Instagrammable food item this year, with smoothies, pizza, ice cream and macarons being made with the ingredient.

There’s also been an increased interest in Hawaiian food, with poke bowls taking the foodie world by storm.
