Montrealers prefer chicken … and not just any chicken: grilled Portuguese chicken, that is

According to JUST EAT's internal analytics, it has been confirmed that once again Montrealers differ from their Canadian counterparts … even in their meal choices!

MONTREAL, May 26, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - When it comes to good food, Montrealers know what they're talking about. Natural-born foodies, Montreal boasts the highest number of restaurants per Capita in Canada – 26.8 restaurants for every 10,000 people – and the second in North America, after New York. And thanks to a meal delivery service like JUST EAT, food from more than 700 of these restaurants can be delivered right to your door!

So what are some of Montrealers' preferences when ordering in? Here are some interesting stats uncovered from internal analytics at Just Eat that show the differences between Montreal and other Canadian cities:

  • Canada's metropolitan areas have an affinity for Asian cuisines (Chinese, Japanese, Thai).
  • Although Asian cuisines are preferred, when it comes to the favourite dish, Montrealers' top choice is Portuguese grilled chicken!
  • Who orders the most meals in Montreal? Just Eat stats reveal that most orders come from University campuses.
  • Montrealers are also more price-sensitive when it comes to takeout: the average order in Montreal is a little over $30, whereas the average Canadian order rises to $41.12.

In addition, JUST EAT found that Montreal is the city that orders more healthier dishes. Fortunately, the choice of restaurants on JUST EAT offers many vegetarian and vegan options. With 15% market share, the health restaurants also provide 15% of meals ordered in Montreal.

What about pizza?
Traditionally, when you think of takeout, pizza tops the list. This is not surprising considering the American Tom Monaghan who invented meals on wheels, was a restaurateur offering pizza and made his first delivery in 1961. Much has changed since then, but pizza still ranks in the top 5 most ordered cuisines by Montrealers.

In short, Montrealers love variety and JUST EAT is there to provide it. In Montreal alone, JUST EAT has over 700 restaurant partners on the island. Simply download the app, choose a restaurant, place your order and pay it from your phone. Let JUST EAT do the rest!
