Boondocks is US slang for a remote area, so it’s an apt name for this American diner-style joint on a little-explored part of City Road. From the team at Stax, Boondocks expands on the calorific comfort food theme. The buzzy space is subtly cool, with fairy lights and comic strips adorning the walls – although hold off on Instagramming, as there was no Wi-Fi when we visited (a bold move in this day and age). To start, we enjoyed cheese-drenched nachos and a crispy bucket of popcorn shrimp. For mains, the Bring Home the Bacon burger was juicy and cooked to order. Dessert saw a DIY smores kit, with marshmallows, Graham crackers, and chocolate presented next to a mini Bunsen-burner, making for a fun end to the meal. The drinks list is made of up American-themed cocktails and mocktails and the friendly staff were happy to give their recommendations. If you fancy gorging, an expedition to the boondocks of Old Street is well worth the trip.
