Those who linger in Katipunan are all too aware of its obsession with wings. While there are about five establishments in the area who offer the same menu, we have to take into account how well it caters to students–its affordability in price, the space to study or socialize in, and how good a deal the food is.
That being said, don’t let Kaboom Wings + Burgers go right under your nose. The home of glazed fried chicken cuts and hand-eaten signature burgers is located right beside Techtite E-Sports Lounge at the 2nd floor of 318 Katipunan Building, F. Dela Rosa St.
Military themed, the store concept emerged from the Filipino-American soldiers who attend Balikan military exercises in the owner’s hometown in Capas, Tarlac. Since then, Kaboom vows to bring a blast of better flavors and braver stories.

Wings start at Php 150, while burgers start at Php 88.
