Just Eat also found that orders for Mexican (+186%) and breakfast (+73%) dishes in Sheffield were on the increase last year, helping them become two of the fastest growing dishes on Just Eat in Sheffield. 

Graham Corfield UK MD of Just Eat said: “The kebab is still king on many UK high streets, but takeaway trends are being shaken up by adventurous eaters looking to sample the hottest new cuisine and healthier, more conscious foodies opting for leaner options.

“Vegan is the fastest growing cuisine ordered on Just Eat last year, with orders growing by 1,500% across the UK.

“We also saw a much bigger appetite for Cantonese cuisine and Nigerian food. With 29,000 restaurants available on the Just Eat app nationwide, collectively delivering thousands of takeaways every week, we’re pleased to offer a wide choice of cuisines from independent restaurants and brands that people know and love.”
