Notting Hill’s favourite Jamaican burger joint is back with a BOOM

Boom Burger, a little piece of Jamaica in London, has reopened its doors on Portobello Road after closing to spruce up the menu and shake up the cocktail offering for the summer days ahead!

Back with explosive flavours that will bring a slice of Caribbean sunshine to April-showered days, enjoy the new Fried Chicken Boom with buttermilk fried chicken, scotch bonnet mayonnaise and house slaw, or the Avocado Boom, which combines a juicy beef patty with cheese and fried avocado slathered in scotch bonnet sweet chilli sauce.

Chomp down on the classics too, including the Mad Boom burger with two succulent patties, chunks of cheese and mouth-watering bacon jam. And whet your whistle with Jerk Boom, the authentic jerk chicken burger with fried plantain and rocket, topped with sweet mango and papaya sauce.

If burgers aren’t your thing there is also a selection of fresh fish and salad dishes. The brand new fiery Peppered Shrimp is a great addition to the menu, or try the tender Saltfish chilli and herb fritters or Fish Salad with crispy Panfried Red Snapper in a spicy vinegary traditional Escovitch sauce.

Meanwhile the Boom side offerings are not to be overlooked, with two choices of mouth-watering wings, the Sticky Wings smothered in a sticky Jerk sauce, or the fried Boom Wings marinated in the house jerk sauce. And we definitely recommend ordering a portion of sweet Plantain fries to complete your Jamaican feast.

Founder, Josh De Lisser and his team have shaken up the cocktail menu with their Boom Juice offering, inviting diners to sip on classics with a Jamaican twist. Be transported to the Caribbean waters as you enjoy a creamy Pina Colada, Rum Punch or Tropical Storm to while away the hours with Boom Burger’s new late night offering.

Taking the Jamaican influence to the decks, expect reggae, dancehall and hip-hop courtesy of Boom Box. The mobile offering will now cater for Boom parties off site as well as onsite. Boom Box will be putting on parties at the site every three months for that real reggae fix. Set to be the relaunch of the spring, get your twerk on and head west to that Jamaican beach shack feel for the raciest cocktails and most mouthwatering food!
