REPORT

Meanwhile, back in the UK, we are

eating more 'world foods', we don't all

really know what they are. Researchers

from Deliveroo polled Britons and asked

them to correctly identify some of the

world's most famous foods with some

surprising, bizarre and often hilarious

results.

Take it away

According to 15% of the nation the

Vietnamese noodle soup Pho is a type

of exotic fish, while 10% of those asked

thought it was the name of a character

from Game of Thrones. When it came

to the Middle Eastern favourite falafel - a

patty made of ground chickpeas - 5%

thought it was the name of a Russian

poet, while a mechanically minded 3%

were convinced it was a vital component

in a jet engine. The Japanese staple

Ramen (a meat or fish broth) was also the

subject of confusion, with 24% thinking it

was a religious festival, and 13% thought

it was an Egyptian Pharaoh, possibly

confusing the name with Rameses.

However, despite some culinary

blunders, a staggering 86% of Brits said

they had international tastes when it

comes to food. The study of 1500 Brits

was commissioned by the food delivery

service Deliveroo, which now offers

customers the choice of 80 (81 if counting

alcohol) different cuisine types, so there is

something for everyone on the app.

The average Brit spends £86 a month

on take-aways, with London emerging as

the take away capital spending £107 a

month, followed by the folk of Edinburgh

who spend £92 a month, and Brummies

who splash out £89.More generally, the

survey found that Chinese food was the

nation's favourite, coming top with 58%,

followed by Italian at 56%, Indian at 50%,

then American at 35% and Mexican 34%.

Caffeine loving Brits consume 1,460

cups of coffee a year, on average,

equating to 93,440 cups in an adult

lifetime, according to new research.

Researchers looking at the hot beverage

habits of the nation and discovered £676

is the average amount Brits now spend

each year on coffee from shops and cafes

- £43,264 over a lifetime. The survey, by

syrup makers Monin, shows the nation's

favourite coffee is by far and away the

Latte, with 41 percent saying it is now

their coffee of choice. According to the

data, people from Cardiff are the biggest

coffee drinkers with people in the Welsh

capital having 1,825 cups a year, more

than any other city in the UK.

A separate report by retail research

consultancy Allegra, stated that there

are now 22,845 coffee shops in the UK,

a 6% increase year on year - with 2.3

billion coffees a year being bought and

consumed out of home. The first coffee

shop, The Angel, was opened in Oxford in

1652, with the second opening in London

in the same year.

Lee Hyde, Beverage Innovation

Manager at Monin commented on

the statistics, "We are seeing a rise in

coffee shops and coffee culture across

the country, and this trend is being

continued over
