From Mexican favourites to fast-food classics and trendy desserts, the nation's best-loved takeaways and where they get them from have been revealed.

All hail the Burrito from Chipotle in London as the most popular thing to order, taking the number one spot in Deliveroo's top 30 trending dishes of 2022.

Coming in second place is the clearly irresistible Pad Thai from Ting Thai Caravan in Edinburgh, while the humble Cheeseburger from Five Guys in the capital completes the top three.

Other top dishes Londoners are loving include a Build Your Own Salad Bowl from Atis (keeping it healthy), The Spicy Chicken Sandwich from Popeyes, the House Black Daal from Dishoom (we don't blame you with restaurant queues round the street), and the Original Frozen Yogurt from Snog.

And while it's not exactly a meal, the very millennial option of Perfectly Ripe Avocados from Waitrose even came in at number seven.

Meanwhile, those up in York can't get enough of the Regular Fried Chicken Strips from Clucking Oinks.

Other favourite dishes in the top 20 include the Margherita from VIP Very Italian Pizza in Brighton, Katsu Curry (chicken) from Wagamama in London, (another) Burrito from FreshMex in Aberdeen and... Fairtrade Bananas x5 from Morrisons in Manchester. We'll call that one a healthy snack.

Featuring in the top 30 are The 'Carbonara of Dreams' from Pasta Evangelists in the capital, Southern Fried from Chicken & Blues in Bournemouth, and Pita Yeeros Chicken from Meat theGreek in Guildford, among many more mouthwatering options.

Deliveroo has also shared some interesting insights into the UK's fussiness. The most popular requests from Brits this year have been, in their order, 'No onions please', 'No pickles please', 'Salt and vinegar please', 'No mushrooms please', and 'No coriander please'.

And some of the more unusual requests have included, 'Can I have five mayonnaise tubs and ketchup all over one small chips?', 'Don't ring the doorbell it's super loud!' and saving the best till last... 'Chilli sauce please lads. It's all been so good this week, thank you very much. Love you guys [with a heart emoji] will bring you some beers soon.'

It also seems our food habits vary depending where we live. Regional data has unearthed that Chippenham locals are the pickiest eaters with the most delivery requests, followed by the Welsh in Port Talbot and Bridgend.

London is the sauciest city, ordering the most sauce with orders, followed by Cambridge and Brighton, who all can't get enough of Katsu Curry Sauce, Chilli Oil, Ketchup, Milk Chocolate Sauce (for a dessert, we hope) and Garlic Mayo.

Brightonians are the biggest night owls in the UK with late deliveries, followed by Leicesterians and Londoners, while the city with the most weekend orders is unsurprisingly also the capital, followed by Cambridge and Reading.

Meanwhile, the most poorly cities are Leeds, Bournemouth and Colchester, ordering the most painkillers.
