If you want to know the way to a Vernonite's heart, check out these insights from Skip the Dishes.

As the year comes to a close, they're sharing the most popular delivery items. In Vernon, butter chicken, junior chicken and beef donairs were tops.

In case you needed a visual for exactly how much take-out a Vernonite needs, they've made some interesting calculations to boot.

For example, if you wanted to eat all 1,700 butter chickens Vernon ordered this year, you’d have to walk the entire BX Creek Trail and eat a dish every 3.5 meters. You’d be very, very full.

Vernon ordered Junior Chickens nearly 1,600 times, which means you’d be able to put nearly two burgers in every seat at the Kal Tire Place for a Vipers game.

Ordered more than 1,300 times, beef donair rounds off Vernon’s top three delivery favourites. No word on how that stacks up.

Vernon’s cravings are pretty close to the rest of Canada’s, with the top three national favourites are butter chicken, poutine and dynamite rolls.

Hometown favourite restaurants are RAKU Rice & Noodle Bar, Lynn’s Vietnamese Restaurant and Sakura Sushi & Japanese Grocery. 

Vernon’s biggest order was a whopping $285, and it included 11 salads and 10 Oreo jars. 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 Vernon in 2019 ordered a total of 209 times — that’s an order every second day from Jan. 1 until now. (Not like it’s a competition or anything, but the nation’s most frequent orderer more than triples that, with 764 orders so far… more than two a day.)
