Two years ago I discovered a fantastic little Italian restaurant in Itaewon called Bombomb. I went back again and again, but in 2010 I stopped visiting (life got a little busy last year). So yesterday I decided to go back to one of my favourite places for a cheap lunch. Unfortunately things have changed...
Bombomb used to have a bargain 9,000 won lunch deal where you could get a rather tasty steak and mushroom cream spaghetti. Times have changed and so have the prices and menu. The steak has disappeared and I ended up ordering a mushroom cream spaghetti for 13,000 won.
It wasn't a bad plate of pasta, well sauced and seasoned with a little fresh leaf parsley and three kinds of mushrooms; but there was no bread or salad on the side (the homemade bread used to be fantastic). With a 4,000 won increase I hoped that standards would be higher, but you get far less for your money now at Bombomb.
That said, it wasn't a bad lunch, but it was certainly a disappointing visit. Bombomb used to be a great place for a cheap lunch in Itaewon. The 9,000 won special will be sorely missed.
