Squaremeal Review of Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. ?

Inspired by the film Forrest Gump, this jazzy seafood chain is a staple in the USA and now it's arrived in London’s Trocadero – its first appearance this side of the Atlantic. Launched in 1996, Bubba Gump now has more than 40 locations spread across the North America, Japan and South-East Asia, but one formula fits all – family-style eateries specialising in shrimp dishes and other seafood classics, plus a big dollop of Southern and Cajun cuisine (both Forrest and his buddie ‘Bubba’ Blue were from Alabama). Typical stateside favourites include popcorn shrimps, seafood hush-pups, ‘dumb luck’ coconut shrimp with Cajun marmalade and meaty plates of jambalaya, Dixie-style back ribs and Southern-fried chicken. London can expect the same, with back-up from luscious desserts such as choc-chip cookie sundae or mama’s bread pudding.

Made to Feel Like A Star at this Glitzy Venue

Nov 2015

In the former premises of the old Planet Hollywood this enormous upstairs eaterie is styled in Southern Hamburger Joint style with numerous Screens etc. Plenty of room and seating options with many nooks and crannies. On a quiet weekday in Leicester Square was the ideal time to visit. Downstairs a shop selling imported USA souvenir merchandise.Forrest Gump Movie themed throughout. Upstairs the huge Diner. I was a bit sceptical of the fried menu at first but soon found some things to order. Star...

    Her Favourite Food :: Her Favourite Food: Bubba Gump Shrimp Company

    When I was in third grade (about 8 or 9 years old for those of you not from the US) my family moved to a teeny tiny town in Virginia. We ended up only staying there for about a year so there are a handful of things that remind me of my time there: snow, Mariah Carey’s Fantasy, and Forrest Gump.

    We got it on VHS tape (remember those?) for Christmas that year. My parents were fans of the movie, probably because they were about the age of the characters and lived through the historical events depicted, but also because it’s an amazing film. And for years I’ve known about the themed restaurant called Bubba Gump...

    Yummy Jubbly :: Bubba Gump

    If you’ve seen the film Forrest Gump, then you’d have heard of the restaurant Bubba Gump – the restaurant that serves all sorts of Southern American comfort food with shrimps (i.e. prawns) being it’s specialty.
    Located on the edge of London Chinatown between Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus station in the Trocadero building, it’s in a pretty prime location for London locals and tourists. We got there at 7 pm on a Tuesday night and it was still relatively quiet. When you get through the shop selling all the Bubba Gump souvenirs, you go up the stairs to the restaurant.
