Who ordered the miso soup?

Universal food-delivery company Skip the Dishes says that was its most popular delivery after it crunched the numbers on Kelowna's 2019 cravings.

The company says miso soup, butter chicken and California rolls were tops among those who needed take-away.

Bluetail Sushi Kitchen, Made In India, and Momo Sushi were the most popular locations for take-away.

Kelowna residents ordered nearly 11,500 miso soups. By Skip the Dishes' calculations, you’d be able to put almost two bowls of soup in every seat at Prospera Place for a Rockets game.

If you had a fork for each of Kelowna’s 10,500 orders of butter chicken and stacked them on top of one another, they’d reach the top of Crawford Falls more than 150 times.

With more than 8,400 orders of sushi placed, Kelownians ate more than 67,000 individual rolls.

Kelowna’s cravings stand out from the crowd compared to the rest of Canada, with the top three national favourites being butter chicken, poutine, and dynamite rolls. 

Kelowna has over 120 restaurants on Skip, but the most popular local restaurants are Bluetail Sushi Kitchen, Made In India, and Momo Sushi.

Kelowna’s biggest order was a whopping $582, and it included seven baked pies and seven rotisserie chickens with a bunch of sides. While that’s certainly impressive, it’s not even close to Canada’s biggest order of the year: A $4,004 order coming out of the Greater Toronto Area.

The person who ordered the most often in Kelowna in 2019 ordered a total of 416 times—  that’s more than an order every day from Jan. 1 until now.

Not like it’s a competition or anything, but the nation’s most frequent orderer nearly doubles that, with 764 orders so far… more than two a day.
