Fried chicken was ranked No. 1 among people’s favorite delivery foods, beating the long-loved noodle dish jajangmyeon, according to a survey released Wednesday.
The state-run Korea Rural Economic Institute polled 3,200 households nationwide, using self-report questionnaires or questions asked through household visits, to find out people’s ordering-in preferences.
The poll showed that 42.4 percent of Koreans favor fried chicken, followed by Chinese delivery meals at 21.5 percent and pizza at 16.6 percent.
The institute said fried chicken was crowned the most popular delivery food among the majority of Koreans regardless of household size, monthly income and age. Only the age group of people over 60 preferred jajangmyeon to fried chicken.
Respondents said they consider the taste of the food (33 percent), price (20 percent), delivery speed (20 percent) and menu items (16 percent) when they choose delivery meals.
