Food Scene : Bomba goes to Spain…. Again!

Bomba news





We’re back from another gastronomic Spanish adventure and we’ve brought you two very special Sunday lunches as a souvenir.
Every year we travel to Spain in search of new recipes, dining trends, wine and produce, bringing this knowledge back to Melbourne.

Jesse Gerner and Andrew Fisk have recently returned from an epic 14-day journey through the sherry region of Jerez, across to Seville and down to the historical beach-side towns of the Canary Islands.

Our intrepid chefs climbed a volcano, visited rice producers, learned the fine art of pot-set goat’s cheese at an organic dairy, consumed cuttlefish genitalia at a bar run by deaf and mute brothers, invaded the kitchens and rooftop terraces of Michelin starred chefs and occasionally fell asleep in the car. Well, this kind of eating tour is hard work!

Because our epic adventure is just too big for one meal, we’re hosting two Sunday lunches, presenting a menu from the Canary Islands on August 23 and Jerez on August 30.

We can’t wait to share our trip with you, these lunches are sure to sell out quickly so make sure you book early. You can book via email,, or give us a call on
(03) 9077 0451.









Sunday 23 August

Retrace our journey through the unusual gastronomy of Spain’s Canary Islands – a Spanish archipelago located just off the southern coast of Morocco.

As a significant trade port between Europe and the Americas these islands are believed to be the first European region to cook with potatoes and tomatoes. We’ll pay homage to their most famous dish, papas arrugadas (potatoes cooked in seawater) and their many variations of mojo sauces, an inseparable accompaniment to Canarian cuisine.

We’re also dishing up traditional Canarian poached pork ribs and conejo en salmorejo (slow cooked rabbit in a tomato and oregano sauce) true home cooking as taught to us by a local family. Join us on a four course journey through a Spanish cuisine like no other.

Four courses including tapa, raciones and dessert, $65 per person.

Sunday August 23, noon – 3pm. For reservations call (03) 9077 0451 or email










Sunday 30 August

Celebrate the pristine seafood and prized beef of southern Spain as we travel from sunny Seville to moorish Cadiz and beyond.

Enjoy sardinas fritas from Sanlúcar de Barrameda, the home of manzanilla sherry, and caldillo de perro, a traditional fish broth paired with poached lobster and black garlic, inspired by our plankton-filled visit to Michelin-starred Restaurante Aponiente in Cadiz.

There’s more to Jerez than the seaside, we’ll also have plenty of pork (of course, this is Spain!) including our take on the Casa Manteca (literally, house of pork fat) chicharones especial.

Finishing up with torrilja (sweetened fried bread) and Pedro Ximenez ice cream, we’ll bring you a leisurely four course lunch showcasing the best of the sherry region.

Four courses including tapa, raciones and dessert, $65 per person.

Sunday August 30, noon – 3pm. For reservations call (03) 9077 0451 or email
