Boom Burger is a Jamaican style burger restaurant near Portobello market. It has a reputation for the best burgers in the area. It has friendly staff, and a lively atmosphere, though we ended up outside due to having a dog with us!
Inside it is like a US diner but with Jamaican memorabilia instead. Food was mixed, with burgers being a lot better than the side dishes.
I had the veggie boom, which was large chunks of sweet potato, some chilli spread, avocado and rocket. Pretty good.
Friends had the jerk chicken, the bacon and the standard boom burger. They were all happy with them, although there was only a tiny piece of bacon in the bacon burger. Chips were terrible, while plantain chips were OK but a bit greasy.
I’d consider returning if I were in the area, but just for the burger.
