A flurry of flavors filled our mouths in 2014. Spicy tangs of East Asian marinades were followed by the garlicky richness of the best Mediterranean munchies and preceded by smokey Indian servings. As a nation our nibbles were rapid and repeated, but some clear favourites were quick to emerge.

Here is the round up of the most order meals in Oz for the delicious year that was.  

20. Lemon Chicken

Crispy, sticky, tangy and sweet. Of course Lemon Chicken is one of 2014’s favourites.

19. BBQ Meat Lovers' Pizza

BBQ Meat Lovers Pizza, has “lovers” in the title, so really, it would be silly not to expect it to be in the list.

"

18. Massaman Curry

Massaman, massaman, what a mighty massaman. One of the year’s most popular Thai curries, it’s much smoother than it’s fiery red and green relatives.

"

17. Lamb Korma

“Baaa” Chicken Korma, this was our favourite Korma.

"

16. Lasagna

Layers, upon layers of cheese and happiness make it no surprise that Lasagna scored a spot in this top 20.

"

15. Chicken Korma

As far as kormas go, the chicken definitely came first. The tender and light meat blends perfectly with sour yoghurt and mild spices, earning it this spot in the countdown.

"

14. Tandoori

The smoky spice of Tandoori had the food fans of 2014 begging for Tan-more-i

"

13. Red Curry

Red usually means stop, but in 2014 Red Curry meant go for it, order some more.

"

12. Capricciosa Pizza

Rich Mediterranean flavours of Capricciosa captured a pizza our hearts this year. People were arti-choking for more.

"

11. Spaghetti Bolognese

Bolognese fans were definitely spaghettin’ some in 2014

"

10. Lamb Rogan Josh

Mary had a little Lamb Rogan Josh this year, then raved about its mild and creamy flavour to millions of her friends.

"

9. Sweet and Sour Pork

If you love getting sweet and sour pork on your fork, 2014 was your year.

"

8. Chicken Parmigiana

2014 was pretty much a Parma-rama. Chicken Parmigiana went from pub favourite, to delivery must have.  

"

7. Spaghetti Carbonara

The pastabilities were endless for Spaghetti Carbonara in 2014, taking out top place for Italian foods as this rich and creamy wonder should.

"

6. Honey Chicken

You mean this isn’t what they’re talking about when they say “the birds and the bees?” Huh. Guess we’ll need to order some Honey Chicken to get over that one.

"

5. BBQ Chicken Pizza

The nicest slice of 2014 was the BBQ Chicken Pizza. Its deep smokiness and kick of BBQ sweetness taking out 5th place.

"

4. Pad See Ew

Still not sure why they haven’t decided to swap Pad See Ew for Pad See Yum. This would make way more sense for the 4th most ordered dish.

"

3. Green Curry

It’s not easy being green, unless you’re Green Curry in 2014, then people love you, so life it pretty sweet

"

2. Pad Cha

A Thai-riffic result, this crisp and spicy stir-fry was one of 2014’s faves.

"

1. Butter Chicken

More like Better, no, Best Chicken. People were crowing for this number 1 all year long.
