Parisians love crepes, right? And Germans eat tons of schnitzel and Italians won’t venture away from their pasta? 

Wrong, according to new data from foodora, a company delivering meals from the most popular restaurants in over 30 cities globally. Tastes everywhere are more diverse than what you might think. Here are some takeaways from their data:

1. American food is big in Paris. You might not expect it, but Parisians are really into American food of all types, whether that means burgers, eggs benedict or chili cheese fries.

2. Germans love Asian food. Korean, vietnamese, sushi, it doesn’t matter. Germans are also big on Italian and burgers, but Asian cuisines of all types are the overall champions in the land of Schnitzel, Wurst, and Weissbier.

3. Some stereotypes are true. People in Amsterdam and in Sydney really do eat healthy, apparently (in both cities, vegetable dishes were foodora’s most-ordered). The most popular foods in Lyon and Turin were, respectively, French food and pizza, proving that some French people and Italians really do eat their national cuisines a whole lot.

4. The burger is king. The burger is by far foodora’s most ordered food worldwide, being the big winner in cities from Oslo to Milan to Munich. It’s a quick tasty meal that is highly customizable, so why shouldn’t it be popular everywhere?

5. We all have food in common. No longer are nations defined by one national cuisine. Instead, it seems people everywhere love eating food from all over the world. It’s no surprise that as cities grow in diversity, their tastes in food should diversify as well.

When’s the last time you tried a new food? Why not diversify your tastebuds today?
