Family dining at Leicester’s Boo Burger.

I am going to share with you our experience dining at Boo Burgers on London Road. I have a huge soft spot for family-run eateries and this restaurant definitely did not disappoint.

When you step in, you will be totally amazed at the clear branding and bright interiors. I was impressed. Its all in the little details and oh boy, I sure loved Boo’s finer details. Things like the wordings on the cups, the font of the menu and even their refillable drink machine. I kept wanting to shout out at my husband, Hey Boo! I kid you not.

We dine with our toddler everywhere and this establishment is ultra kid friendly with their bright red high chairs and their special Boo.Kids menu. No stress and we get to enjoy our food in peace. She was definitely a happy Boo.Kid. Burger + fries + drink for £5! What a deal for the little ones and great job to the team for the comfortable and relaxed environment too.

Let’s get to the MOST important and crucial part when dining out (or in) .. the taste and the quality of the food. I will let the pictures speak for themselves BUT will you just LOOK at that shiny cheese. Their cheesy fries takes the cake for me. It was so good, I LOVED it. Reasonably priced at £3 too. We also tried their Sticky as well as Buffalo Wings. The wings were on point, I preferred the Sticky and the husband enjoyed the Buffalo ones.

I went all out and stuffed my face. Cheesy fries, wings, milkshake and of course one needs to try their burger. The place is called Boo Burger.

The whole works. Boo Burger, fries and milkshake!

I could not decide whether to have a beef or the chicken burger. Oh decisions decisions. Haha! I was thrilled with my Chick-A-Boo when I sunk my teeth into it. In all honesty, I knew my other half is going to order the classic beef one. Trust me to ‘test’ it too.

Chick-A-Boo

The Chick-A-Boo’s deep fried chicken breast fillet was crunchy and oh so tasty. The sauce complemented the crispy fillet and the bun very well. (Shhh, it might have been better than a KFC Zinger burger and that is one of my all time guilty pleasures).

My other half tried Boo Burger’s Haystack served with onion strings! Just take a peek at that mouth watering burger. Whoops, I hope you were not too hungry. The thinner onion ‘strings’ were lush and a lovely addition to the burger.

Not only does the burgers get a huge thumbs up from the adults, the child loved it too. Funny enough, when I was pregnant with her .. all I wanted to eat was burgers.

If you have a tenner, scoot along and try Boo Burger. Their high quality food really do speak for themselves and you get lovely service as well. Ps. why not eh? You will get to feast on a burger + fries + drink all for less than a tenner!

Happiest City in the World

On the 16th of May, Monday.. Leicester must have been the happiest city in the world. The streets were absolutely crazy, it was remarkable seeing so many people come out to salute the Foxes. Truly a carnival-like atmosphere! How lucky are we to be in Leicester at this point in time. Personally, am not a big footie person but hey ho .. for an underdog to achieve a big victory like this! Well done Leicester City FC! We sure can party and celebrate their win together with them. I am so glad I managed to bring my little one out to be part of the celebrations, putting aside my initial worries that we might get trampled especially with a bulky pushchair. We went ‘bright and early’ to Victoria Park at 3pm and there were already lots of people. Many families turned up with young children and this definitely put my mind at ease. We enjoyed a little picnic whilst taking in the atmosphere and the performances. We caught the cheerleaders, Bollywood dancers and the DJ. You can feel everyone celebrating. The vibe was just mad. Little one could feel it too and she was waving her flag with great enthusiasm.

Thank goodness, I managed to grab some warm sugary donuts earlier. The food stations were … heaving with people by the time it was 5pm!

We left to have a bit of a rest and came back out later to catch the victory parade i.e the open top buses with the team! She was very excited to see the aeroplane and helicopters in the sky. We were lucky that it was such a lovely spring day, I could treat her to an ice lolly 🙂

By this time, you cant see an inch of ground anymore .. everywhere was filled with humans. Waves and waves of people kept coming from the city towards Victoria Park. We waited by London Road and did not even attempt to go in the Park. Ps. its reported that 240,000 people turned up for this victory parade.
