”My mama always said life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get”. An iconic line from an iconic film. So, what’s not to love about a restaurant dedicated to all things Forrest Gump. And Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. located between Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus station and in the historic Trocadero building is not shy about the fact they love Forrest Gump.
As soon as you enter the restaurant you’re faced with shelves of knick knacks and quotes relating to the film and a menu full of comfort food from the American South that reflects the film’s setting in Alabama. So much detail has gone into the memorabilia, that you can’t help but find yourself smiling.
Like the name suggests, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.’s menu consists mostly of shrimp dishes and other seafood, as well as Southern and Cajun cuisine. The restaurant offers dishes named after characters in the movie, like Jenny’s Catch and the restaurant’s bestseller Forrest’s Seafood Feast.
