Bombetta London: delicious bundles of meaty joy in Snaresbrook

10 August, 2016 — by Toni Ratcliff0


Bombetta London's menu draws inspiration from the Italian farming communities of Puglia where villagers would gather together at the butcher's shop to eat pieces of meat that had been rolled up with cheese and cured meats and then roasted over a fire. These meaty treats are Bombetta, and this idea of communal sharing of simple dishes and delicious meat on sticks is what Bombetta London have now brought to Wanstead.

In 2015, fried chicken became the new cheeseburger. Last year it seemed like every other month a new chicken joint was popping up across London offering a crunchier, juicer, more hipster version than their PFC cousins on the high street. But I'm not going to be one of these people who bemoan the gentrification of food stuffs: if you want to take a popular dish and make it even MORE delicious, then by all means be my guest!
