Uber Eats Cravings Report reveals fastest delivery done in 113 seconds

South Africans are looking for quick delivery, and Uber Eats has proved this is possible, as the fastest delivery time recorded this year was 113 seconds in Cape Town City Centre. The order contained two packets of sweets, 1 mini lighter and a Type C to USB cable.

This data is based on the 2022 Annual Cravings Report released by Uber Eats. The report provides a snapshot of the most popular, the most unusual, and some of the most unique orders on the platform. The data has revealed a few telling trends about South Africa’s eating habits throughout 2022…

  • The city that never sleeps: Cape Town is topping the charts again with the most orders  between 12 am and 4 am! Early bird or Night Owl – Uber Eats has you covered!
  • Ka-ching: One user saved over R8000 in delivery fees by using Uber Eats’ membership program, Eats Pass.
  • Ice Ice Baby: Ice remained one of the top-selling grocery items ordered with over 500 000 bags of ice sold this year!
  • Vegan obsessed: the City of Cape Town has claimed the title of Vegan Obsessed, with the most vegan orders this year, followed by Johannesburg and Durban.
  • Pap power: It’s true that South Africans love pap with almost anything as it was one of the year’s top orders.
  • Some like it hot and in bulk!: the most expensive order this year was close to R13 000, which was for over 30 curries ordered from the same restaurant.
  • Stuck on repeat: The Uber Eats magic you know and love wouldn’t exist without exceptional delivery people. One delivery person drove over 1200 hours bringing delicious meals, treats and essentials to Eaters throughout the year – that’s like watching your favourite movie over 570 times or singing the National Anthem over 100 000 times. One delivery person also completed almost 9000 deliveries within the year
  • Around the Earth and back: Another delivery person travelled enough kilometres to circle the earth more than twice
  • Loyalty runs deep: one Eater ordered from the same restaurant 348 times this year, talk about having a favourite!
