Thanks to the food delivery apps, you can now get your favourite burger delivered to your doorstep from your choice of restaurant in town.

Food delivery services have become a big part of our lives and it's quite clear they are here to stay, but what types of food do South Africans love to have delivered?

With two years in the industry, Bolt Food has done a bit of fun research and delved into the world of fast food to compare between Johannesburg and Cape Town and see who orders what.

According to the food ordering and delivery service platform, foodies in Johannesburg and Cape Town are on the same page when having their food delivered.

Bolt Food reveals that they have proven they prefer chicken from time to time.

“Johannesburg customers order chicken twice as much as Capetonians. In contrast, Cape Town customers are a little hooked on fish, with roughly nine fish orders for every eleven orders of chicken.

“Interestingly, Cape Town wins the food delivery stakes fins down, where sushi was ordered almost 100 000 times last year, and Johannesburg has done so a little over 10 000 times.

“Beef wins over chicken every time, though, with nearly 10 orders for every seven orders of chicken in Cape Town. Johannesburg’s meat lovers choose beef twice as often as they choose chicken,” they said.

In addition, the online food ordering app outlines the below.

  • Residents of the two iconic cities agree when choosing between Italian and Indian food. Capetonians order more Indian food than they order Italian, while Joburgers order roughly two-thirds more than they order Italian food.
  • Cape Town’s favourite burger is the Brocka Cheeseburger from Brocka in Rondebosch. At the same time, Johannesburg’s residents love a trusted, timeless favourite: the most ordered burger in Johannesburg is the Original Spur Burger from the Texahana Spur.
  • The busiest food delivery restaurant in Johannesburg in 2021 was the San Antonio Spur, while its bustling counterpart in Cape Town is RocoMamas in Rondebosch.
