Not too busy eating to talk about where's best for food

For any food lover, 2015 has been a delight, but what and where was it that got us licking our lips and telling out friends, family and anyone who will listen, about the most?

Thanks to Twitter, we may have an answer.

Cereal Killer Cafe was one, and the most mentioned restaurant in the city, pipping to the post a similar novelty cafe, this time with cats, Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium.

It was perhaps the attention gained from being targeted by anti-gentrification protesters, but it certainly got the Twitterati chattering. And perhaps the definition of restaurant is a little loose, but there were certainly some higher end contenders.

Here's how the ranking stacks up, according to Relish's Twitter Impact Index, which analyses mentions on Twitter.

It wasn't just dining out that took our fancy either, it was dining outside. Among the many street food markets that sprung up this year it was Shoreditch staple Box Park which shot to the top of the pops. Ever growing Street Feast, which just this week bagged millions of pounds in funding to expand, followed not far behind.
