As the world observes vegan month in November, UAE residents are indeed living the spirit.
Talabat, the region’s pioneering online food delivery service, reviewed the vegan and vegetarian orders received across its restaurant partners, to find out more about the food choices of the nation’s residents.
And the results show a dramatic increase in the preference of UAE residents for vegetarian meals with an increase of 300 per cent in the number of vegetarian or vegan meals ordered over 2018.
The UAE leads the region in the growth of vegetarian orders. The most ordered vegetarian/vegan dishes across the region include hummus followed by falafel, koshari, lentil soup, dal, paneer, guacamole, tofu, acai, papaya salad, chia and avocado toast.
The highest growth in orders across the region were for acai at 96%, avocado toast at 88% and chia at 65%.
With its diversity of vegetarian/vegan restaurants on board, Talabat indeed is serving the choice of the people!
