Foodpanda.in, India’s one of the largest online food ordering platform, recently conducted an insightful survey pan-India to comprehend the online food-ordering trends of the country between 3 pm to 7 pm.
The survey that puts the spotlight on ‘What does India eat between lunch and dinner’ threw up some interesting observations like IT hub Bangalore is the frontrunner in placing orders post lunch and before dinner.
The survey also lime lights Italian cuisine as being the most desired grub with Pizza topping the list of items ordered. Foodpanda.in’s latest survey studied the number of the total orders placed across India, including the city that tops the list of orders placed, the timings of those orders, the favourite cuisine and the oft-ordered dishes between 3 pm and 7 pm.
Bangalore being the Silicon Valley of India with a major population of young working professionals beats the other cities when it comes to ordering food between 3pm – 7pm, with 18 per cent of the total orders across India coming from this city. This is followed by Pune (16 per cent), Delhi (16 per cent), Mumbai (11 per cent), Gurgaon (10 per cent), Hyderabad (9 per cent), Kolkata (4 per cent), others (16 per cent).
Also, while the Italian cuisine comes across as the most obvious choice for food in between meals at 32 per cent, it is closely followed by Chinese (24 per cent) and Fast Food (17 per cent). Meanwhile, Japanese and Hyderabadi cuisine seems to have lost the gourmet game by being the last options preferred by foodies. Salads and Sandwiches (8 per cent), North-Indian Mughlai (7 per cent), Multi-cuisine (3 per cent) and South Indian (2 per cent) make up the rest of the least preferred choices with Bakery items and Ice-creams recording only one percent of orders placed.
Being the cosmopolitan cities, Bangalore, Pune, Delhi and Mumbai are taking the online food-ordering trend to new heights. The ever popular Italian and Chinese cuisines are still the most-cherished among patrons.
The survey also points out that people love a desi twist to their continental preferences like the Tandoori Paneer Pizza. The crux of Foodpanda.in’s survey indicates that working professionals are prone to ordering quick fix meals to satiate their hunger pangs between 3 and 7 pm.
