La Bomba Cafe & Tapas Bar
LA BOMBA CAFE AND TAPAS BAR HAS PERMANENTLY CLOSED.
La Bomba Café and Tapas Bar is a suburban gem nestled in Seven Hills, with a Spanish-inspired menu including Tex-Mex breakfast fare six days a week and tapas on Friday and Saturday nights.
Café by day, customers can enjoy a well-brewed Genovese coffee in the quirky surrounds – think eclectic furniture and candy-striped wall paper.
Stand out breakfast dishes include house-made chorizo beans with fried egg and Mexican scrambled eggs with avocado, tomato, shallots and coriander served with salsa and sour cream; while lighter fare includes muesli with organic honey yogurt, julienne granny smith apple, fresh mint and cinnamon and heartier appetites should try the El Grande Manger, a big breakfast of baked beans, bacon, chorizo, roasted roma tomatoes, hash brown and fried egg. A small lunch menu consists of focaccias and blts.
On weekend evenings, La Bomba transforms into a BYO tapas bar offering modern tapas and Spanish cuisine. Try crusty baked corn (rolled in coriander garlic breadcrumbs with finely grated parmesan), bombas con salsa (chorizo filled potato bombs) and pulpo con chorizo (grilled octopus and smoky chorizo with lime, mint, parsley and cherry tomatoes).
Share plates or raciones range from slow roasted beef cheeks in ximenez reduction on parsnip mash with garden peas and fresh herb salad to cerdo con sobrasada (scallops on pork belly with sausage, herb salad and chilli lime butter); while delightful desserts include churros served with Aztec chocolate sauce, cinnamon and vanilla ice-cream and Pedro’s Rum Rebellion – warm, crispy waffles with chocolate sauce, rum ‘n’ raison and vanilla ice-cream plus ximenez sherry soaked raisons.
