Boom Burger's Brixton site now set for March 2015

Boom Burger, the Jamaican-style burger company based in London's Portobello Road, is to open its second site, in Brixton, later this month.

The new 30-cover venue had previously been reported as opening in February.

Located next to Brixton Market, it will also feature an outdoor seating area and a takeaway service. Open Tuesday to Sunday, from 12 noon to 11pm, it will operate a no-bookings policy.

Classic sauces and sides include Scotch bonnet pepper mayo, jerk wings, and salt fish fritters.

The décor will feature reggae records lining the walls, to go with the restaurant's Jamaican soundtrack.

Originally opened as a pop-up in Westbourne grove pub the Earl of Portobello, and Hoxton Square's the doll's House, Boom Burger first opened as a permanent site in February 2013.

Jamaican-born-and-raised de Lisser trained as a chef before coming to the UK, and created the concept as a means of putting Jamaican flavours into a good burger.

He aims to keep the sourcing as local as possible, with the organic burger meat coming from butcher HG Walker in London's Barons Court, and the plantain and Scotch bonnets bought from a West Indian trader near de Lisser's home in West London.
