When visiting Melbourne one must chase all things hip, creative and tasty and that’s exactly what we found at Bomba.
This trendy Spanish tapas joint sits on Lonsdale St – just look for the Bomba Rooftop sign in red lights.
Chefs Jesse Gerner and Andrew Fish have created an affordable menu perfect for sharing with a range of paella, croquettes, cured meats and motadidos rubbed with tomato and delicious toppings. There’s also a great selection of larger plates and salads to share (or devour by yourself).
We enjoyed a plate of Serrano gran Reserva Jamon and some tomato, burrata and aged sherry vinegar toast with hand filleted Nassari anchovy to start with.
The charcoal grilled 6+ score Wagyu rump cap was cooked to perfection and was served with mojo verde and horseradish. A side of pickled red cabbage, apple and walnut salad is a wonderful addition to compliment the beef.
Oh and don’t forget to jump in the lift after dinner and check out the rooftop bar as well.
Bomba is a very funky venue, with a great vibe, delicious tapas and all for a very reasonable price.
