Located in the same plaza as Other Mama, The Rice Shop, Zaytoon and others, Bomb Tacos took over the space formerly occupied by a couple other taco shops. But this is nothing like its predecessors. It’s run by Robert Solano, formerly of Mundo, and he brings a level of sophistication to the food that other casual taco shops lacked.
I got a platter with 2 carnitas and 1 al pastor, which came with vegetable rice and beans. Both tacos were amazing. The carnitas tacos full of tender morsels of pork with crisp edges and a good bit of heat. The al pastor also brings the heat but the pineapple sitting on top tempers it, somewhat.
On another visit I tried the asada curly fries. I loved the charred edges of the asada that still managed to be tender in the center and packed some noticeable heat. The meat topped a large mound of curly fries along with tomatillo cheese sauce, guacamole, sour cream and pico de gallo to create a massive serving that’s large enough to share or you can just pig out yourself for the ultimate cheat day meal.
For dessert I tried the churros and ice cream. It’s a large portion good enough for 2 or 3 to share with crispy, cinnamon and sugar covered churros cut into small bite size pieces along with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream. After the heat from the tacos, it was a nice way to end the meal.
