It has been revealed that the most popular restaurants ordered via delivery app Deliveroo to political addresses in Westminster include a Thai chain, three burger restaurants, and a Hawaiian poke shop.
Politico reported yesterday that Deliveroo data had Rosa’s Thai as the most ordered in Westminster, while Byron comes in second, Pimilico Tandoori at third, Bleecker burger fourth, and Ahi Poke at fifth.
Apparently at the Treasury — where former chancellor and now-Evening Standard editor George Osborne’s legacy is still felt — burgers are the order of the day. Specifically, the struggling chain, Byron, and the ascendent NYC-inspired London favourite, Bleecker. Osborne, of course, made the headlines when he was seen devouring a £6.75 Byron burger and fries the night before he released the budget in 2013. Liz Truss, the Conservative MP for South West Norfolk, has previously said that she was a fan of Bleecker’s burgers.
Deliveroo says these restaurants are the most popular “ordered by MPs, officials and journalists” in the Westminster village in the last six months. Data is taken from addresses that include official government departments, Parliament itself, and Millbank studios.
