Publish date:

Twin Cities diners had a taste for Thai in 2018, if their orders from BiteSquad were anything to go by.

The Twin Cities-based food delivery company has revealed what its most delivered foods were last year, as well as the most popular restaurants.

In both cases the No. 1 spot was held by Coconut Thai, the Asian eatery located at 50th and France in Edina, which had three of the 10 most-delivered foods and was also named the most popular restaurant.

Other interesting things from BiteSquad? There was a 6,379 percent increase in the number of collard greens orders, suggesting a healthier move among Twin Cities diners, until you learn there was also a 1,869 percent rise in banana cream pie orders.

While it didn't crack the top 10 of the most-delivered foods in 2018, BiteSquad did note that one of the biggest rising orders last year was the Tennessee Hot Chicken Sandwich from Red Cow.
