Deciding what to eat for dinner is an age-old quandary that never seems to get easier. Opting for delivery is always a good option when you have no desire to cook, but then you still have to decide what you want to eat. The next time you need some meal inspo, you can take a look at Grubhub’s Top Ordering Trends of 2022 — you know, if you needed something to confirm that you should definitely get a burrito and marg tonight.
You’ve probably gotten pretty good at narrowing down your dinner plans over time, but everyone knows it’s not an exact science. A meal that worked for you last month might not be the ~vibe~ tonight, and those dishes you meal prepped earlier in the week always start to give you the ick around day five. And with so many delicious delivery options to choose from, scrolling through apps like Grubhub doesn’t always seem to help, either. It’s time to get creative with your dinner planning process, and Grubhub’s 2022 Delivered report is here to help. The recap, which was released on Dec. 14, breaks down the top food and drink items of 2022 by analyzing millions of orders placed through the delivery service, from dipping sauces and milk alternatives, to dessert orders and late-night go-to bite. It’s basically the Spotify Wrapped of the food delivery world.
The Wrapped comparisons don’t end there, because the app also brought back its personalized Delivered reports for diners on Dec. 13, which gives Grubhub loyalists a rundown of all their takeout highlights for the year.
