Boojum, Ireland’s first burrito bar, is preparing its opening party in Galway on Saturday June 8, to bring locals a true taste of Mexico.
Mexican dancers will perform traditional sets at 12 noon and 5pm, and the Mexican ambassador Garcia de Alba will be opening the store with a few words. Other celebratory perks include a free beer with any sit-in main meal, and other surprises on the day. The casual restaurant, which can be found at Unit 1, Spanish Parade, is the family-owned eatery’s fourth premises and will add to the city’s already vibrant and thriving food scene.
Boojum stands for fresh, friendly, and affordable food, serving a range of dishes such as burritos, tacos, and nachos. The unassuming burrito joint is currently Ireland’s largest importer of spices and chillies direct from Mexico, which chefs use to prepare each dish from scratch, every day. With freshly cooked food, complemented by a wide selection of speciality beers and hard-to-find hot sauces, boojum works hard to offer its customers a little slice of Mexico, many miles away from Monterrey and Mexicali.
John Blisard of boojum is excited about the move to Galway. “We have always wanted to open a restaurant in Galway and now that we have found a location that we love, we are excited to start making burritos and hearing what customers think about our food,” he said. “We really appreciate and listen to all feedback we get, so hopefully people will come in and let us know how we are doing.”
