The simpler, high-calorie and easy-to-distribute foods have strong demands recently. In addition, the search of "wildlife dish", "bat" and other terms has increased sharply, because many diners have started to search the Internet to monitor whether restaurants sell wildlife.
Under the epidemic, except for local dishes, most of people missed hot pot
Even if Haidilao and other hotpot restaurants announced a temporary closure, there are still many Beijing and Shanghai diners waiting for them to open.

In addition, popular search terms were mainly about cuisine and dishes in the past; while during the outbreak of epidemic, snack search terms such as cake, Starbucks and milk tea appeared.

Network searches: diner tracked whereabouts of "Wuhan wildlife dish"
On Ctrip Gourmet List, the search frequency of "wildlife dish", "Wuhan wildlife dish" and "popular animal husbandry" increased. Ctrip Product Manager said that users became supervisors so as to see which stores like that are still opening, and then report to the authority during the special period. After all, "wildlife dish" may be the culprit destroyed the Spring Festival holiday.
According to the person in charge of Ctrip Gourmet List, it was very strict about the screening mechanism of restaurants and dishes. If the restaurant is found selling illegal wildlife dish, it will be closed immediately.
In Wuhan which is the city worst affected by NCP, local users' food search keywords changed. Starting from January 22, 2020, the hot search terms for food in were wildlife dish, buffet, bat and seafood. However, before the outbreak, the top five food searches in Wuhan were hot pot, buffet, Haidilao, barbecue and roast whole lamb, which is the normal appearance of Wuhan cuisine.
What do Chongqing diners like? According to the data of Ctrip Gourmet List, before the NCP, keywords were hot pot, buffet, Jiefangbei, barbecue, roast whole lamb, Guanyinqiao, seafood, mutton, Raffles and Shapingba. After the outbreak of NCP, keywords were hot pot, buffet, Guanyinqiao, seafood, seafood buffet, Jiefangbei, Raffles, Wanzhou, barbecue and Fuling. From the perspective of search categories, Chongqing users are more used to searching food by business districts, mainly searching several main business districts in the main urban area. Compared with that before the outbreak of NCP, the frequency of searching regions outside the main urban city has increased, which is probably related to the epidemic management policies in various regions, and users were restricted to their hometown in districts and counties and couldn't go to main urban areas.
In addition, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, the United States, France, South Korea, Australia, Vietnam and the United Arab Emirates are among the top 10 most searched overseas cuisines by Ctrip users.
