Kicking off Foodable’s first international ranking for our Top 25 Restaurants series is London. If you are currently following along with our other city-level lists, you’re probably already aware that Foodable’s Top 25 rankings are not hand-selected or editorially chosen. Rather, we consult our Restaurant Social Media Index (RSMI) to provide data of what London locals are chatting about most — for better or worse — on their social media channels in regards to restaurants and menu items. And we’re not just tracking Facebook and Twitter, but a total of 17 social platforms. Through keyword tagging, we are able to attain granular data on consumer sentiment and influence of these restaurants. Each month, restaurants are bound to shift, while some will fall off completely, perhaps returning another month, with other strong suiters climbing up and onto the list, as well.
Pulling from December data, London’s Top 25 for December is a top-notch bunch. Holding the top spot on the premier list is Jinjuu with a Social Score of 188.27. Jinjuu, located in London’s Soho neighborhood and helmed by celebrity chef Judy Joo, specializes in modern Korean food. Jinjuu comes with an extensive menu of both large and shareable plates, including street tacos (bulgogi beef, pork belly, and tofu Caesar), carnitas fries, sliders, bowls, and proteins, but its signature dish is Korean fried chicken.
Also in December’s Top 5 are Dabbous, Marianne, The Palomar, and The Araki.
