Review: Boom Burger, Notting Hill, London

Boom! A (relatively) new burger  has exploded onto the London burger scene, and it’s as boom as the name suggests.
Out west in Notting Hill, burgers are now being served with a loud Jamaican twist at BOOM Burger. Order at the counter choosing from the beefy and bacon jam “boom” burger, jerk chicken burger, fish burger, cheese burger and a Caribbean-esque veggie sweet potato and chili jam burger. Take a seat inside or out, and tuck in to one of the top burgers in London, head bouncing to the beat of some seriously good reggae tuneage.
The Boom burger’s (£8) brioche bun is toasted on the inside and packed with a generous meat patty, slightly jerky mayo, mild cheese, slim layer of lettuce, thinly sliced red onion, tomato (REMOVED) and a sweet, salty and boom ting bacon jam.

The jerk wings (£5) are a revelation – deep fried, crispy.

The fries (£2), although not my first choice plantain fries (they’d just run out), are still perfect.

The tables are laden with tall squirty bottles of BBQ sauce and slightly spicy mayo –  triple points from me. A ginger beer is the perfect accompaniment.

Despite the friendly loud atmosphere and good tunes it’s not really a place to linger. No bad thing, you eat a great burger and you leave shortly after. 100% happier. Booming brilliant…
