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 (ยฃ8) 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 (ยฃ5) are a revelation – deep fried, crispy.

The fries (ยฃ2), 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…
