What to eat if you want the Zags to win

UPDATED: Fri., March 16, 2018

For all of you foodie – and superstitious – Zags fans, here’s some fun info.

Grubhub has tracked the foods that are most popular on the Bulldogs’ winning game days.

The online and mobile food ordering company connects customers with more than 80,000 take-out restaurants in more than 1,600 U.S. cities, including Spokane, as well as London.

It recently released its stats to coincide with the NCAA college basketball tournament, which started Thursday.

According to Grubhub, the top three “luckiest foods” for the Zags for this year are chicken biryani, fish and chips, and pork fried rice.

Here are the details:

1. chicken biryani — 278 percent more popular on team’s winning days than losing

2. fish and chips — 144 percent more popular on team’s winning days than losing

3. pork fried rice — 102 percent more popular on team’s winning days than losing

4. carrot cake — 99 percent more popular on team’s winning days than losing

5. steak taco — 86 percent more popular on team’s winning days than losing

6. garlic knots — 83 percent more popular on team’s winning days than losing

7. sesame chicken — 81 percent more popular on team’s winning days than losing

8. chicken korma — 78 percent more popular on team’s winning days than losing

9. massaman curry — 75 percent more popular on team’s winning days than losing

10. garlic basil naan — 75 percent more popular on team’s winning days than losing

Last year, Mongolian beef topped the list. It was ordered 131 percent more often in during Zags’ winning-game days than losing-game days.

In second place in 2017, dumplings were ordered 73 percent more frequently.

Tying for third in 2017 were chicken fried rice and chicken teriyaki, both ordered 59 percent more during winning Zags games.

Garlic naan, quesadillas, pad thai, kung pao chicken, hot-and-sour soup and chicken lo mein rounded out the 2017 top 10.
