I want to import GeoJSON data into MySQL to compare performance with other databases. Is there any way I can import following data into MySQL. And if it possible, how to create table for such records.

{"id":"1","name":"Frankie Johnnie & Luigo Too","address":"939 W El Camino Real, Mountain View, CA"}},
"properties":{"id":"2","name":"Amici's East Coast Pizzeria","address":"790 Castro St, Mountain View, CA"}},

MySQL databases don't really support GeoJSON as such, they follow the model put forward by OGC which follows the WKT format.

Having said that you could put your GeoJSON in a json field although thats probably not ideal as you lose access to the spatial analysis functions
