Bomba!

Last weekend, when my daughter was home from NYC with a friend, we decided to browse the shops downtown and have lunch at one of her favorite restaurants (so many, always hard to choose). We were walking by Pack Square and stopped by Bomba, a little establishment on the corner with Asheville's Chef Hector Diaz behind it. For some crazy reason I had had never tried it in the several years it's been open, but we were so glad to discover it better late than never. They have delicious $8 meals - surely the best deal in town with creative, fresh, yummy meals big enough to share. We had the pork areas, which were fantastic while rich, but my favorite were the vegetarian papusas - now that was a perfect dish. We also ordered the fabulous fish tacos, but easily could have shared two dishes between three of us.

There are only a few tables, but we were able to get one on the patio just as the Monsanto protesters walked by in very  colorful attire. Photos below...
