According to the second annual Uber Eats Cravings Report, here are the most popular delivery requests in Canada:

  1. Extra sauce
  2. No onion
  3. No tomato
  4. Spicy
  5. No cheese
  6. Extra spicy
  7. Well done
  8. Sauce on the side
  9. Extra mayo

Below are some of the most surprising quarantine trends:

  • Picky eaters. Eaters in Alberta seem to be the pickiest – they are most often adding special instructions to their orders while people in Nova Scotia are super laid back. They hardly ever add special instructions!
  • Manners. The most polite provinces are Quebec and Manitoba – they say “please” and “thank you” the most in their instructions! Though Canadians are very polite in general, with over 50% of notes containing “please” or “thank you” compared to 40% in the US
  • Quarantine cravings. During quarantine, requests for “extra sauce,” “extra cheese”, “extra onion,” and “no lettuce” increased the most. Requests for “gluten free,” “sauce on side”, and “dressing on the side” decreased.
  • Acts of Kindness. Could please include a note for the recipients. “Thank you to the entire team. You do your job with such kindness and patience. Thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of your patients, particularly our mom”
  • Absolutely not. The most popular “no” items include: no onions, no tomatoes, no ice, no cheese and no bacon.
  • You’re so extra. The most popular “extra” items include: extra sauce, extra spicy, extra pickle, extra mayo and extra cheese.
