With or without an official day, we think popcorn is going to be big this year (see the recent opening of Pop - London's first boutique popcorn shop in Notting Hill). To celebrate here are three restaurants serving the savoury snack right now.
Popcorn-infused ice-cream with a side of caramelised black pepper popcorn kernels will make you want to skip straight to dessert at the Soho restaurant from the team behind Ottolenghi.
The Gilbert Scott
Move over stale peanuts, the snacks at the bar of Marcus Wareing's British brasserie include their signature smoked butter and black pepper popcorn, as well as a bacon and maple syrup special tomorrow in honour of National Popcorn Day.
To calm your nerves during the long wait for a table, the tiny Italian American restaurant in Soho offers hungry diners a mug of chilli popcorn with their wine.
