Bomba

Bomba is the newest place in town you should add to your list. Not only for it’s stunning rooftop bar, where you can enjoy a drink, fresh air and some of Melbourne’s gorgeous sky line, but also for it’s Spanish flavoured menu.
 
Formerly The Alyesbury, Bomba have added their own touch to the place. Colourful menus and playful light fittings. The wine, beer and cocktail menu will leave you scratching your head at what to choose, with so many great options on offer. 
 
I was invited to their opening, the day before they officially opened to the public. I sat with some of my fellow food bloggers and we nearly ordered the whole menu. Everything sounded delicious.
  
My top dishes for this place that you MUST try:

Lamb T-Bone: these babies are smokey from the flame grilling, and so juicy
Pork Jowl: it’s so melty, a bit sweet, but it will make you weak at the knees
Montadidos: crunchy toasts and packed full of flavour
Paella: we tried two kinds, the one above and the black seafood one. Both were great. 
I would have really loved to have tried the air dried tuna, but on my next visit it will be the first thing I’ll be ordering.

Some of our table was still hungry for more, but we suggested we see the dessert menu. Well everything sounded amazing on it, so we ordered one of everything.

I must say the churros were a disappointment. Perhaps because the kitchen was under pressure that night, but they were a bit on the chewy side.  The chocolate croquetas were a winner, as was the turron parfait. 

The waitress we had had a great knowledge of the menu, and was happy to help make selections from the impressive wine and beer menu. 

Even though the Alyesbury is no more, I’m glad the rooftop bar is still amazing, and there is fantastic lamb on the menu. I will be back, especially on a balmy summer night. 

Thank you again Bomba for the delicious night out!

    All looks so good, except the churros. They do look rather ‘blond’. BTW love your black and white photos at the start of the post, very nice.
