28th May marks the celebration date of one Australia’s all-time favourite guilty pleasures – the burger! Its origins remain unclear, but one thing’s for sure, since its emergence on the food scene circa 1800s, it’s unwaveringly stood the test of time.
According to a survey conducted by restaurant delivery service foodora, Australia has a HUGE appetite for these meaty patties and globally we’re in the top three countries that chooses this dish as our favourite meal to order in.
Sydney is particularly obsessed, with an overwhelming 76% ordering burgers over any other cuisine, and compared with eating the patty out at restaurants, most of us would rather chow down in the comfort of our own home, with the TV as our fave accompaniment, well that and the French-fry!
If you’re wondering what the most popular burgers are – Sydney siders are choosing the Chicken Burger, whereas in Melbourne and Brisbane a classic cheeseburger comes up trumps.
With 75% of Aussies saying they choose to order via food delivery apps, because they’re just too lazy to cook, coupled with the fact that over half of us report that we constantly have an empty fridge, it seems our appetite for on demand restaurant delivery services is only rising.
Top of our wish list for where we most want to order from in Sydney is the legendary BL Burgers, Guilty and Down N Out, in Melbourne it’s Brother Burger, Brooklyn Depot, The Beer and Burger Bar, and in Brisbane: Miel Container, Chur Burger and Fritzenburger.
