HOT OR NOT: DELIVEROO REVEALS BRITAINS SPICIEST TOWNS

Ahead of National Curry Week, Deliveroo creates UK heat map revealing which cities like their curries hot… or not.

UK - October, 11 - : It's no secret us Brits love a curry - cracking into a couple of poppadoms, washing down a curry with a cold Cobra… But while our shared love of curry unites us as a nation, we are a nation of two halves - the spice lovers and those with chilli-phobia.

Just ahead of National Curry Week, Deliveroo has revealed which cities like their vindaloos knock-your-socks-off hot, and which prefer their creamy Kormas… and it's not what you'd expect. The British food-delivery company has drawn up a table and UK heat map, revealing the hottest and mildest curry capitals of our great nation.

  2. Chai Special Thali from Chai Street
  3. Chicken Phall from Dalchini
  4. Chef Recommended Jalfrezi from Currylicious
  5. Murgh Tikka Makhani         from Purple Poppadom

And the crown for the UK's mildest city goes to... Coventry - a well deserved spot, epitomised by their most ordered Indian dish on the app: a side of mint sauce. Their other top dishes range on the creamier side of the spice spectrum, with Butter Chicken and Kormas pulling up as city favourites.

  1. Mint Sauce from Stanton Bar and Grill
  2. Butter Chicken Masala from Jacobs Restaurant
