Uber Eats World Cup Binge-o-meter reveals India’s top match day meals

Uber Eats, now available across more than 500+ cities globally, reveals ‘Uber Eats World Cup Binge-o-meter’, a round-up of India’s favorite match-day meals and munchies during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. 

India’s love for cricket is the only thing that fans love more besides the love for good food. Conducted between the period of 30 May and 11 July 2019, Uber Eats reveals that while Indians were riding on the cricket fervour for the national team, they also preferred Indian food at their tables. Interesting findings reveal that across India, cricket enthusiasts were binge-eating on carbs while rooting for India with most orders for bread, followed by cooling off the pressure with ice-creams. 

Interestingly, fans indulged into cheesy burgers to satiate their hunger pangs during the most awaited match of the year  -  India VS Pakistan.  Chennai clocked in the most orders during the season, closely followed by Bangalore and Pune. 

Here are some of the top food trends that scored big this world cup:

What did India eat to keep themselves gripped/energized during the sporting matchup of the year - India VS Pakistan match?

While the ‘Rain Gods’ took over Old Trafford in England, it was raining Burgers across India, which emerged as the most savoured dish of the day, followed by the meal of the millennials - Pizza.

Every order matters: An eater from Indore (who was probably hosting a match-day gathering) placed the biggest order for 233 dishes including Paneer Biryani, Special Chicken Biryani and Kaju Biryani. While the smallest order was also placed by an eater from Indore for tawa roti at Rs. 13, followed by a consumer in Chennai who ordered for a bottle of water to quench their thirst.

India celebrates big wins with dessert: The top sugar cravings during the World Cup were ice creams, followed by cakes and gulab jamuns.

A hint of cricket on your plate: Hilariously, an eater ordered for  “a scoop of cricket instead of pistachios” while another fan politely requested Uber Eats to save the day with some sugar-rush. The comment read, pls send change of 500 and also add 1 extra gulab jamun because today India lost the world cup I am a little bit in depression.”

At Uber Eats, every order matters, right from a single bottle of water to many many jaw-breaking burgers.
