Could you imagine spending $2,578 on food delivery?
Well, to date, that's the most money spent on a DoorDash delivery in 2020 — 70 orders of Mediterranean herb chicken, 40 orders of grilled vegetables and 20 cheese plates. I've been known to spend my fair share of $$ on delivery food, but this is really something else.
We got this data from the delivery app's just-released "Deep Dish Report," which is filled with information about the top dishes and food trends of the year as the first half comes to a close. This year is obviously a bit different since we're in the midst of a pandemic, so the report also includes data about what people ate/felt during quarantine.
DoorDash has used order data from Jan. 1 to June 30, as well as info from a national consumer survey that polled 2,000 people to compile this report.
So, what food item did Seattle order the most? Seafood!
I mean, this absolutely makes sense. Our city's top items ordered have been dishes like California & spicy tuna rolls, fish & chips, crab rangoon and tartar sauce.
When it comes to breakfast, lunch and dinner on the West Coast, according to the data, the food we ate the most was:
- Breakfast: breakfast burritos, bacon, French toast, lattes, pancakes
- Lunch: Create your own pizza, miso soup, veggie spring rolls, chicken egg rolls and orange chicken
- Dinner: chicken tikka masala, spicy tuna rolls, Mongolian beef, bean burritos and dragon rolls
- Late Night: stuffed jalapenos, mini churros, cheesecake, horchata and fried zucchini
And here are some other interesting takeaways from the DoorDash Deep Dish report:
- Denver is obsessed with cheese
- Atlanta has a sweet tooth
- The top condiment of 2020 so far is ranch
- People missed eating out at restaurants, specifically Mexican food and margaritas and sushi
- The top 5 food items ordered in the United States as a whole were chicken sandwich + fries, mac & cheese, spicy shrimp tacos, make your own pizza and ice coffee
