A pop-up burger business that offers Jamaican-influenced burgers is set to open its first permanent site.
Chef Josh de Lisser, who previously ran Boom Burger at temporary sites at the Earl of Portobello in Westbourne Grove, and the Doll's House on Hoxton Square, will open a permanent restaurant by the same name at 272 Portobello Road.
A soft opening is scheduled for late January 2014 with the restaurant and bar fully up and running in early February.
The restaurant has 25 covers inside, another 20 outside and will also offer takeaways.
Caribbean flavours are key to the Boom Burger experience, with plantain fries served alongside the standard potato variety, and house mayo pepped up with Scotch Bonnets. The traditional chicken burger is replaced by a Jerk Burger, complete with papaya and mango sauce and fried plantain.
The bar will serve a selection of rum cocktails and drinks designed to match the Jamaican flavours.
The interiors and style will capture the feel of the Jamaican restaurants de Lisser grew up in.
Boom Burger will be open for lunch and dinner six days a week. It will also be open all day on Fridays and Saturdays to cater to the market crowds with a selection of brunch options including the Brunch Boom, comprising a fried egg, sweet-cure bacon, bacon jam and avocado salsa.
All Boom Burger meat is organic, and sourced from local Baron's Court based butcher, H.G. Walter, while brioche buns are bought in from artisan bakery The Bread Factory. Plantain and Scotch Bonnets are all bought from a local West Indian trader near de Lisser's West London home.
