Boom Shack opens new site in Brixton

Boom Shack brings loud Jamaican flavours to Brixton and is offering 100 free dishes to celebrate

Boom Shack, the new venture from Boom Burger, opens its doors in Brixton this weekend and giving away 100 dishes to celebrate.

Founded by Joshua de Lisser, who was brought up in a family of keen cooks, trained as a chef after moving to the UK from Jamaica. He’s all about the “loud flavours” found in traditional Caribbean cooking as well as quality ingredients, like the organic meat he sources from Baron’s Court based butcher, H.G. Walter and brioche buns from artisan bakery, The Bread Factory.

Boom Shack is located on Brixton Station Road and will predominantly be a lively cocktail bar serving up fun Jamaican vibes (open Wednesday – Sunday) and a drinks list straight out of the Caribbean.

For breakfast, a selection of warm brioche buns will be available – expect to see a bacon, egg and cheese sarnie, plus avocado and scrambled eggs as a veggie option, both priced at £7 and you can wash these down with a fresh juice like Papaya Don’t Preach – papaya, lime juice, apple and ginger, or Welcome to Jamrock – a blend of mango, orange, pineapple and coconut water.

In the evening, food comes in the form of hot ciabatta sandwiches, including the Boom Cubano (£8) – ham, slow-cooked pork shoulder and a layer of Swiss cheese, topped with fiery hot peppers and the Boom Sarnie (£8) – Scotch bonnet chilli beef, with cheese, house-made bacon jam and jerk mayo.

Boom Shack is intimate and only seats 21 people and has an inviting wood-walled interior, windowed doors and bright Jamaican colours, fitting in perfectly with the vibrant atmosphere of Brixton Station Road.
