Boojum Mexican Lunch Offer

boojum-offerThere’s a new Mexican cafe in Dublin’s Italian Quarter (that pleasant little row of restaurants and shops that runs between the Millennium Bridge and the Jervis St Luas stop).  It’s called Boojum, and they are currently offering a lunch special – any main menu item plus a bottle of water for €7.  When I first saw it, I thought it was a bit underwhelming – water should be free in restaurants anyway, and those small bottles of water are so wasteful.  But I eventually gave in and tried it, because I really like Mexican food, and saw that you could get fizzy water with the deal.  I LOVE fizzy water and occasionally shamefully put aside my environmental conscience to buy it.

Anyway, I had a steak burrito and can happily report that they are really good.  They’re assembled on the spot and you’re given a choice of fillings and fixings.  As well as steak, you can have chicken, veggie, or shredded beef. There’s  a choice of black beans or pinto beans and three different varieties of salsa.  Sour cream and cheese are included in the price, but jalapenos or guacamole are a little extra.  My burrito was really tasty, the steak was tender and the salsa had a good kick.  You can also get tacos or fajitas as part of the offer.  Each table has an interesting array of little bottles of hot sauce, and there’s space to sit outside if it’s a nice day.  Recommended.


  1. I’m hearing great things about this place, can’t wait to give it a whirl. Burritos are the new gourmet burger

  2. It is tasty but i still think i prefer the burritos from Taco Taco around the corner in the Epicurean Hall.

  3. they are super tasty especially the shredded beef with the salsa verde

  4. I’ve been at the Boojum in Belfast a few times and have nothing but good things to say about it. Hadn’t realised they’ve opened in Dublin too so I’ll have to take a trip doen!

  5. is it take away only ?

  6. Nope, there’s tables inside and outside. Same price for eating in or out.

  7. Taco taco is great…but man did this fill me up better!! AWESOME!! Great value for money…even the regular menu is pretty cheap. Thanks Boojum!!

  8. tried this yesterday at lunch, Great burrittos, really cheerful staff. def recommended!

  9. They need a pork/ carnitas option…

  10. Burritos and Blues please!

  11. Burritos and Blues due to open soon at junction of Aungier and Georges Street in Dublin, I see

  12. I was lucky enough to have Boojum a few weeks back and have to say that it’s far better than any of those other scauldy Burrito bars. The ingredients were high quality and I can’t wait to head back

  13. Lads, go and try burritos & blues, the place is awesome! Mucho tastier and funky blues soundtrack!

  14. Have to agree with James. Boojum is by far the best burritos in Dublin. Massive portions, fresh ingredients and cheap beer.
