BOOM is a burger van, situated on a pitch just along from Daddy Donkey on Leather Lane. On a recommendation from a friend, I headed down on a Friday lunchtime to give the Boom burger a Burger Me! once over.
|BOOM, The Fast Fresh Burger Co. on wheels|
|Their menu - burgers for £4.50, what is there not to like!|
|Some burger patties sizzling on the griddle in the background|
|Cheese melting under cloche at the back of the BOOM wagon, buns toasting on the front hot plate|
|A caged bacon, cheeseburger.|
|Topping Tsunami (but generous bacon!)|
|A meaty, cheesy, bacony BOOM burger.|

As street food goes it's not fancy, but it is fresh, and the flat griddled patties charred on the outside, complete with cloche steamed cheese is a tried and tested technique. I think if anything it's the seasoning of the meat that lets this down. Sure it's filling and tasty, but the quality and mouth-feel of the beef is not a patch the kind of quality you get from the Meatwagon, for only £1.50 more. It fills a gap, but I actually preferred my second lunch today, my Daddy Donkey Burrito!
