Eater Favorite Local Spots

Yesterday, the husband and I were bopping around Seeb getting some things from one of our favorite plant nurseries and going to the China Mall (again) to get the correct length of tubing we needed to vacuum our pool.

As it goes with outings like these, in a few hours after all tasks had been completed, we were hungry. The China Mall proved to be a bit lacking in food court options, and the nearby Magic Trailer restaurant we’d been curious to try depicted various dishes of “Mexican” food covered in globs of yellowy cheese that didn’t really ring true to what comes to mind when we think of good Mexican food.

Then Ian came across Bomba Burrito. The reviews looked good, it was close by, we were VERY hungry by this point, so it was a no brainer.

I wish we could’ve eaten everything on the menu, but we had to be reasonable. We ordered two types of tortas: chicken and a beautifully stewed, flavorful and tender beef. (Can you tell which one was my favorite?)

These delicious sandwiches were paired with fries so well seasoned and crispy that, though ketchup was an option, it was definitely not necessary. We washed it all down with two bottles of Jarritos soda. (Insert food coma noises here.)

Living in a place where the food market is saturated with one (thousand) too many burger places, it is wonderful when you can find different types of cuisine done well.

My husband stated it perfectly about this place, “There’s a difference between working at a restaurant as a job and working at a restaurant because you’re passionate about the food you make.”

In Bomba Burrito’s case, the people we met on this day are definitely passionate about Mexican food!

We will definitely be coming back again.
