Bombay Bar & Grill is Known for Nightlife but it Deserves a Culinary Shout Out.

IMG_4484_edited

This is one of the posts I was extra excited about. Thursday was $2 Slider night and we sure were lucky it was.

 

We also put in the first order of the new Chili Garlic Lime Wings. There was nothing mediocre about anything we tried.

Bombay has a gourmet selection of burgers that they also prepare as Sliders. These were not typical sports bar Sliders.

The Aztec had a Chili Relleno and a light Tempura crunch. A+
The Chuck Wagon had homemade Chili and the slice of Applewood bacon gave it nice texture. A+
The Nacho Volcano was like a home   made stuffed Jalapeno in the form of a burger with some good spice. A+

After Battling the Christmas Chaos in the Stores, I Unwound at Café Fiore for an Amazing $20 Dollars. Look at All We Enjoyed For the Price.

Really, the atmosphere was very calming. Cafe Fiore

$20 for two, we got:

  • mini gourmet pizza
  • bread with bruchetta sauce
  • chicken slider
  • romaine wedge with gorgonzola bacon dressing
  • a glass of wine
  • bottled beer

We like to graze and share so it was enough to call dinner for us. The gourmet pizzas are a steal for $5!

Discovery Happy Hour (Mon-Sat 4-6) (Sun 3-close)

Ventura Happy Hour Discovery Menu

 

This was the first time for me here. It seemed OK for me only because the Happy Hour drinks were only discounted to $5. They had a simple selection of wines beer and well drinks on the Happy Hour Menu. I had the Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc which was very nice. The pour was generous. I guess I shouldn’t complain. And the service was very attentive on the patio.

When I first arrived I asked everybody to move a table over because the guy playing guitar and singing was jarringly loud.

One of my pet peeves are:  Guys who use an amplifier when everybody he is playing to is within 30 feet.

Somebody else must have said something because by the end of visit the volume was more tolerable and I was actually enjoying it.
Or, I was readjusted because of the libations.

Ventura Happy Hour Discovery Nachos

The Nachos were pretty good. I think $5 was a fair price. We did add steak on one and chicken on the other but I forgot to see how much was charged for it. the tortilla chips tasted home made and held up to the toppings.

I’d like to try some bowling some time here.
