New Menulog Data Reveals The Nation’s Late-Night Delivery Trends.

For those poor souls who’ve come home from a night out to an empty fridge, or those pooped after a night shift in need of sustenance, or those who’ve “enjoyed” a fancy morsel of steak for $58 and need a top-up… Menulog will be there for  you with extended late-night delivery hours until 2.00 AM. . 

With more than 1,000 late-night restaurants around Australia, night-owls no longer need pit-stop for a late-night kebab - it could be waiting at your door, along with the choice of more than 35 other cuisines available after-hours. 

Menulog data shows that a third of all late-night orders happen after 10.00 PM. So, how do Aussie meal orders change as the night goes on? 

Nationally, burgers are one of the most popular foods to have delivered late-night, with the Whopper® with Cheese topping the list for Hungry Jack’s snacks ordered after 9.00 pm. Menulog tested this theory in Sydney over the weekend with the first run of its Burger Bus [images below].

In broader NSW, the top choices for late-night are ice cream and pizza.  Cold Rock Icecreamery Rutherford was the most popular for ice cream and pizza; The Darling Pizzeria and Manoosh Pizzeria, both topped the late-night list.

Victorians love the European Style Meat, and Chips Pack from Turkish restaurant Sip N Bite Kebabs. In Victoria, more than one in 10 late-night orders are with Sip N Bite Kebabs! Coming in at a close second is pizza from Speedy's Pizza & Pasta in Braybrook.

Queenslanders are bacon-lovers with the Bacon Deluxe Hunger Tamers from Hungry Jack’s in Herston and Hungry Jack’s in Annerley topping the late-night order list. In fact, of the top ten most popular late-night order restaurants in Queensland, more than three quarters are from Hungry Jack’s stores - Queenslanders love the flame-grilled goodness! 

In Canberra, our Nation’s capital, 24% of the most popular late-night orders are also from Hungry Jack’s, with chicken nuggets topping the list. Curry and naan from Punjabi Junction also ranked highly.

South Australians love their pizza, favouring Hanson Pizza and Pasta Bar, who consisted of up 29% of all popular late-night orders, closely followed by Salisbury Pizza Kitchen at 12%. 

In the Northern Territory, one in five late-night orders come from Crust Pizza in Casuarina with crowd favourites also being the Special Fried Rice from Hong Kong Restaurant

At the opposite end of the country, Tasmanians love a late-night order of Butter Chicken from Charcoal Fire Indian Restaurant, with pizza from Soph Slice Gourmet Pizza Bar another popular choice. 

On Australia's West Coast, one in five late-night orders gets placed with Sinatra's Pizza & Cafe and Little Lebanon Cafe.  And in Perth, locals love the Angus Beef Burger and Brioche Bun from Big Bite Burgers.

Delivering to 87 per cent of Australia's addressable population, Menulog provides options for any meal occasion.

Menulog teamed up with its exclusive partner, Hungry Jack’s, to bring the first-ever 90s inspired ‘Burger Bus’ (yep, inspired by pop sensations Vengaboys) to the streets of Sydney, delivering free Whopper® burgers to late-night hot spots and venues across the city over the October long weekend. 

Like an adult ice cream truck, the ‘Burger Bus’ was heard with its signature song... ‘We like to Patty’. The ‘Burgerboys’ dished up hundreds and hundreds of free Whoppers® when and where people needed it most.
