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 crispy school prawns were very moreish, as were the house special deep fried bomba balls. 

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.

We shared a couple of jugs of white wine sangria but there’s also an impressive Spanish inspired wine list and its very affordable too! 

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.
