Ever wondered what the most popular food is in your neighbourhood? Yes. Well, you’re in luck because top secret, super-classified foodpanda statistics have now been released exclusively to our readers, and the results really give a fascinating insight into food delivery in Singapore. We’ve looked at statistics collected between January and May 2015 to give a breakdown of the most popular cuisines by area. So if you’re intrigued to know if your culinary habits are the same as your neighbours, check out our infographic below and read on.
With the laid-back maritime of charm of districts Woodlands and Seletar, you’d be forgiven for thinking that some item of seafood would come out on top here. However, the king cuisine of Northern Singapore food delivery is the globally-adored hamburger. In fact in the 4 months of statistics we collected, burger orders increased by a massive 197%. But really, who can resist a juicy, flame-grilled burger topped with cheese and served with french fries? Well, not the good people of the North of Singapore, obviously. We’d recommend checking out Burger King for your Northern burger delivery.
But if you’re not into burgers, don’t worry. You have some other great choices around including popular circus-themed Pezzo Pizza for cheerful and pizza delivery in Singapore, and The Manhattan Fish Market when you’re in the mood for seafood.
In contrast to the North, the bustling districts of the South including Tanglin and Downtown favour a more subtle cuisine. Given the choice, your average Southerner will go for sushi, so why not try the innovative eatery Maki-San @ The Cathay for your sushi fix? However, you shouldn’t limit yourself to just Japanese cuisine. This area is famous for its culinary prowess with places like The Maxwell Road Food Court and Chinatown’s Smith Street well-known to tourists and locals alike for excellent hawker food, and party central Clarke Quay contains possibly the greatest concentration of restaurants anywhere in the island.
Top-rated foodpanda restaurants in the area include Real Food, a fantastic choice for healthy eaters searching for delicious vegetarian food. Those on the lookout for awesome Singaporean cuisine would do well to check out Killiney Curry Puff – constantly the recipient of glowing reviews on foodpanda.
Green and leafy Upper Bukit Timah and Sentosa are among the most expensive areas of Singapore, so the most popular food delivery may come as something of a surprise. foodpanda’s stats show unequivocally that unpretentious and humble fried chicken is what these neighbourhood’s inhabitants turn to for their culinary kicks. Of course, a plate of this comforting finger food can bring as much (or more) happiness than any posh, expensive dish. If you’re hunting for some of the crispy stuff, try Popeye’s at Jurong Point. For anyone not into fried chicken and a fan of traditional Singaporean, order something in from Old Chang Kee at Jurong West Caltex.

It turns out the residents of the East and West have something in common when it comes to food: the inhabitants of the East of Singapore also go for fried chicken as their food delivery of choice, with BBQ chicken wings especially popular. We’d recommend Wingstop, situated in Bebok’s mall, as our number one chicken delivery option in this area. Another great chicken place nearby is world chain (and world popular) Nando’s – nestled sweetly in the Tampines mall. Finally, check out EPIkebabs on Century Square for great Turkish food – highly praised by foodpanda.sg users.
Last, but-by-no-means least, we come to the central region of Singapore including the districts of Bukit Timah, Serangoon, Novena and Newton. When not walking in the Botanical Gardens, or sampling the excellent BBQ seafood at the stalls in Newton Circus, the average citizen of Central Singapore likes to order in pizza. The world’s favourite Italian food is widely available in the area, but we’d go for Spizza, which serves up some excellent slices with thin bases and original toppings.
If you’re bored of pizza, we also recommend Kinara Contemporary Indian Cuisine, which can be found in boho Holland Village. Try the deep, rich Chicken Tikka Masala if you’re there.
So, there you have it! Singapore’s favourite food delivery choices, to satiate your curiosity as well as your hunger. If you’re feeling hungry and lacking inspiration, maybe what your neighbour’s having might be a good choice.
