Chinese cuisine ranked first on a list of Canadian's desired dishes as of Jan. 6, 2022, followed by Thai, Indian, Italian and Korean food, according to analysis by Chefs Plate.
"The popularity of Chinese cuisine has been rising over the past decade, but it is in the past five years that it has nearly consistently topped online searches for international cuisines," Chefs Plate said in a media release.
