Bomba is the latest restaurant of the Grands Boulevards likely to take you on a journey. Set a stone’s throw from the Bonne Nouvelle metro station, this great spot by Mamie group marks the renewal of this iconic boulevard. Both trendy and uncommon, the place tales you to a verdant jungle where one can enjoy sophisticated Latino-American-inspired cuisine.
The open-plan kitchen is where magic happens. Here, one enjoys an indulging menu put up together by French-Colombian chef Guillermo Donoso. After learning the ropes at the Brasserie du Louvre by Paul Bocuse and Les Ombres by Alain Ducasse, this young talent is about to surprise foodies with flagship dishes revisited his way.
Let us discover delicious tapas to share. Of course, we had to start with the tortilla chips and homemade guacamole. You might find it a bit classic and yet, the experience is worth the trip: dip the corn chips in guacamole to die for, delicious sour with pomegranate seeds to give it a nice twist.
And we cannot say no to the tuna ceviche, served in coconut with plantain chips, pineapple, pomegranate, and passion fruit. Very fruity and packed with vitamins, it is perfect to feel very far away in this spot that does nothing like anyone else.
For meat-eaters, the tiradito de carne could make your heart sink: the beef, just seared, literally melts in the mouth. Slices are put on guacamole along with bell peppers for some juicy crisp, and chimichurri sauce.
There is also revisited street-food such as grilled corn. Once again, do not expect something simple: anyway, you can trust Bomba to make each dish you order provoke a striking gustatory memory. Therefore, the corn on the cob is covered in cream cheese and parmesan, melting between the grains.
One last heart-stopping dish? The beer-marinated braised chicken, cleverly seasoned and sprinkled with peanuts. It will particularly please lovers of smoky and bitter flavors.
The spot is perfect for a lunch in a verdant spot that changes in the evening with soft lights and a festive atmosphere. From Thursday to Saturday, enjoy a merry and dancing ambiance until 2 a.m. with the feeling of being on a vacation while sipping on cocktails honoring South-American flavors.
