Deliveroo reveals that Dublin’s North and South Side have more in common than they think

Deliveroo reveals that Dublin’s North and South Side have more in common than they think

  • Deliveroo data reveals the top food orders by location in Dublin City
  • Northsiders are more likely to support local Irish restaurants
  • Southsiders are forgoing meat and opting for vegetarian/plant-based dishes

The age-old rivalry between North and Southsiders is relentless, but Deliveroo wants to unite them with a love of food. Data of food order trends in Dublin has revealed an extensive list outlining the top food orders in each area - with some very interesting finds.

Below are the top orders in some of the largest areas in North and South Dublin based on population:



Fajita from Boojum


Diavola from Sano Pizza


Chargrilled Chicken Skewers from Camile Thai


Pork Gyros from Yeeros

Arran Quay

Cheese Burger from Five Guys


Chicken Tenders from Camden Rotisserie


Eggs Benedict from Farmer Browns


The Conor McGregor Pizza from The Back Page Pizzeria


The Bacon CheeseBurger from the Chili Shack


5oz Beef Burger with Bacon & Cheese Burger from Supermacs



The Palestinian Falafel from Umi Falafel


Chicken Chunks from Smokin Bones


Falafel Burger from The Garden of Vegan


Red Curry from Baan Thai


Spicy Buffalo Wings from Gotham South


Subway Melt from Subway


Pig In A Box from Meat Wagon


Personal Pizza Deal from The Pizza Slice


The Tiger Roll from Musashi


PBP Brekkie Roll from The Pot Bellied Pig

The two rival halves of Dublin have more in common than we may think - but the data reveals some interesting quirks.

Support Local

Data shows that those of the Northside are more likely to order from Irish restaurants than their neighbours south of the Liffey, with several Irish-owned favourites like Supermacs and Farmer Browns occupying a large amount of Northside orders.


The overwhelming majority of vegetarian or plant-based dish orders come from Dublin's Southside, where salads and soups are front and centre. Some of the Southside's most popular vegetarian orders come from restaurants like Umi Falafel and The Garden of Vegan.

Deliveroo has also revealed the top food orders from the students of Dublin City's main colleges and universities.

Trinity College Dublin

Chicken Breast Sandwich from Supermacs

University College Dublin

Chicken Katsu from Wagamama

Dublin City University

Spice Bag from Wok On In

National College of Ireland

Cheese Dog from Five Guys

Technological University Dublin

Bacon Cheeseburger from Five Guys

Winner Winner, Chicken Trinner?

Going completely against the boujee stereotype that TCD students are supposed to embody, the most ordered dish by those from Trinity College Dublin is a humble yet satisfying Chicken Breast Sandwich from Supermacs. Dinner for Winners?

A spokesperson for Deliveroo said, "Deliveroo is all about giving people the freedom to eat what they want when they want and Dublin's eating habits reflect our unique preferences.

"Taste in food can tell a lot about a person, and as can be seen from the findings - it can show us just what our similarities and differences actually are." they added.
