I tried this place twice, once last summer and again, just recently.
I have had the fish and chips and I have had the oyster po boy and the poutine. All are very good. The batter on the fish is light, not greasy. The chips are thin cut and fried perfectly with not a trace of oil on my fingers or in the container. The poutine was unique with a mushroom gravy and cheddar cheese curds. It was different tasting - but nice.
Service was friendly both times, although a little slower than other food carts - but considering the food is nice and fresh - I don't mind.
I had Kaboom Box on my radar for a while now, to see what the fuss was about regarding their Smoked Salmon Sandwich. At close to $8 for just the sandwich alone, it's not cheap but it does fill you up. I had one for lunch and was sufficiently full until dinner time.
Overall the sandwich was good and served warm. The salmon was very tasty and the salw went well with it, although I didn't really get a hint of the maple flavour it's touted to have. My only real complaint is the bread which seemed to be day old, and very dry. I can see how this sandwich would be delightful if served with fresh bread.
May be back but not for a while, as there are probably better carts in the area to try.
These guys really love their food and it shows. It also generates excitement for their customers when you hear them speak about it. It worked for me. So far I've been there twice and had the Smoked Salmon "Salmwich" and the Fish & Chips. The Salmwich was outstanding but it was the slaw in it that brought it all together for me. The fish and chips had some tartar sauce and lemon on the side that ended up not being used because the fish (and the batter.. yum) was amazing enough on it's own and did not need to have its delisciousness covered up wth condiments. Worth every penny!
