Delicious Italian food from Puglia is now in London...

A little history:

Bombetta is originally from the farming communities of Puglia where the land was devoted to olive groves, and room to grow trees for firewood was scarce. As fuel was precious, farm workers would head to the local butcher and feast on Bombetta from his communal oven.

This meat would often be rolled up into a little bundle and contain bits of cheese or be held together by cured meat. A delicious food and a tradition based on community, eating and sharing together was born. And now it's here...

BOMBETTA, TO MY MIND, IS EVER SO SLIGHTLY THE 'BOMB'

"Having mulled for some weeks over how to describe Pugliese bombetta, the inspiration for the restaurant’s name, the closest I can get is an Italian version of ‘devils on horseback’, without which no British Christmas dinner is respectable...Bombetta are cooked parcels of meat, wrapped in another meat, laced with a fresh herb and a nugget of melty cheese..There is a distinct lack of faff about the Bombetta experience. Which is good, as I didn’t go to Snaresbrook on a Thursday night to be called madam, served 11 courses of the chef’s current conceits and have a napkin folded into an owl each time I visited the ladies’ room....."

BOMBETTA IS THE ITALIAN RESTAURANT WITH REAL BANG

"Expect fireworks at the east London trattoria that brings subtlety to traditional Italian street food and fresh style to classic small plates..."

ONCE YOU'VE TASTED THE WARES, YOU'LL FEEL LIKE YOU'RE BACK IN THE OLD COUNTRY

"This deli-cum-diner in the East London ‘burbs takes its name from a rustic street food once all the rage with farmers in Puglia, involving meat cooked on charcoal grills then bundled up with cured meat and cheese. Trust us, it works".

They summed up what makes Bombetta work: taking simple trad dishes, and avoiding needless tinkering in favour of letting high-quality ingredients do most of the work. It might feel out of place in leafy Snaresbrook – but that’s not to say it won’t have people venturing into darkest Zone 4. I’ll certainly be coming back
