Boojum Galway – ¡Arriba México!

It’s another glorious, sunny afternoon in Galway. We cherish every moment of it :)

Food and Cooking Blog from Galway

After a long evening walk in Claddagh, we eventually get hungry and decide to head to town to pay a visit to Boojum and try their famous Mexican food. The moment we walk in, it’s like we cross the Mexico border; interior filled with evening sun rays, wooden walls and the smell of burrito, ahh this amazing smell of a hot Mexican burrito.

We queue. We grab two bottles of water. We look at the menu and already know; tacos! ;) We are greeted by the most friendly guy ever – he smiles, he asks “What can I get’ ya?”. Kuba orders soft tortillas. I can’t resist temptation and order hard corn ones – yes, it got messy but am with my husband, he’s seen worse pictures ;)

Friendly guy stuffs tortillas with Carnitas (shredded pork braised in herbs and spices), Pollo (chicken marinated in boojum blend of spices) and Barbacoa (shredded beef); three tortillas – each with different filling. We move to the girl who ads cheese, lettuce and salsa to our tacos. There is a big selection of salsas; tomato, sweet corn, verde and hot Roja :)
I’ve seen some people wearing “Boojum addicted” t-shirts, I want one too so I ask about the loyalty card. I get it from the girl at the till who kindly gives us two stamps. 2 stamps closer to the t-shirt; 38 more tacos- whoo hoo :)

We find a table for two, just by the window. I think the big blue windows look great – very welcoming and fun. On the table we have a selection of sauces.

First bite….and we know! those guys know what they’re doing. Tacos vanish within minutes. Rather sooner than later, I will proudly wear Boojum’s t-shirt because I am definitely going back for more :)

Mucios gracias guys :)
