Londoners are more likely than people elsewhere in the UK to eschew turkey this Christmas in favour of less traditional fare like pheasant, goose and even lobster.
That's according to Sainsbury's, which has released information to getwestlondon about how its shoppers' festive habits vary across the country.
Rather than fighting over the leg and breast, it would seem, the capital's culinary adventurous families could be snapping over who gets the claws.
Of course, while lobster is a more left-field choice for the big day, goose was once the customary centrepiece of the Christmas feast, as fans of Dickens' A Christmas Carol will be aware.
Turkey still rules the roost across much of the country, according to the supermarket chain's sales figures for 2014.
It is the meat of choice on festive dining tables in the West Midlands, Newcastle and Liverpool.
But Londoners are not allowing when it comes to opting for more exotic fare, with people in Middlesbrough partial to quail, guinea fowl and veal, and the Northern Irish having a taste for quail.
