Deliveroo, the food delivery app, has revealed the kind of food that politicians, civil servants, and government workers order in. Intrigued? Read on.
The data is based on orders from locations including Leinster House, where TDs and Senators' offices are located; Government Buildings, which includes the office of An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar; and the Department of Finance.
What's on the menu?
According to the delicious data, it seems that politicians love a good burrito as much as the rest of us as Boojum tops the politico polls.
The Mexican joint is closely followed by Sprout, a farm-to-table salad bar that we have no doubt is favoured by An Taoiseach who, as we now know, is all about living a fit and healthy lifestyle. That metabolic age won't change itself after all!
Up next is Eddie Rocket’s, an American-style diner serving up a classic combo of burger, fries, and milkshakes.
Coming in at both number three and four on the poll is Nando's, a restaurant famous for its peri-peri chicken. We wonder which politicians dare to order the extra hot sauce...
It's not all about burritos and burgers as Eatokyo, a noodle and sushi bar in Temple Bar, makes the cut at number five.
Sushi is quickly followed by fish and chips from Leo Burdocks, burger and fries from Five Guys, more Mexican food from Little Ass Burrito Bar, finger-lickin' chicken from Camden Rotisserie and a cheesy slice from Sano Pizza.
