For many, no night out is complete without a stop-off at a takeaway to pick up a snack.

It’s a tradition that’s followed around the world – but the types of food consumed varies enormously, as a new infographic reveals. 

New Yorkers favour the $1 pizza slice, but chopped pork, noodles and deep-fried dough covered in cream are snacks eaten elsewhere.

In the infographic, which was created by TravelSupermarket.com, it shows that in Cape Town, South Africa, late night revellers often opt for a boerie roll after sipping on the country’s famous red wine.

The dish is similar to a hot dog and sees a spiral-shaped sausage called a boerewors packed into a bun and topped with onion relish, tomato and chilli.

German drinkers in Berlin also go for a sausage-based dish for their late night snack with the favourite being currywurst and fries.

It sees a traditional German sausage covered in curry sauce and paired with salty fries covered in mayonnaise.

Fries are also a favourite in Amsterdam, with vlaasme frites consisting of chips covered in onions, mayonnaise and curry ketchup extremely popular.

In London, drinkers on their way home go for the humble kebab while the $1 slice of pizza is popular in New York.

However, one of the more unusual late-night snacks is in the Philippines, where people eat sisig.

It consists of chopped pork, often cuts from the head, mixed with chilli peppers, egg, onion and a lime-like fruit called a calamansi.
