Bar Bombon is food for life. All of our dishes are made with plant-based ingredients. No animal products are used. And since homemade tortillas still make a better taco, we make them the old way, like abuela did.
¡Buen provecho!

Went today for Philly vegan restaurant week, and I asked waitress about specials for this week she said it’s the regular menu. Which on the site said otherwise. The food was not what I expected from a restaurant. The bb club was very tough , couldn’t bite through and the empanadas was good but very small. Nothing was worth the price we paid.

The good: our server, Phoebe, was a sweetheart, very attentive, and always checked in with us; the restaurant is right by Rittenhouse square so there's a lot of traffic (foot, vehicle) nearby yet the outdoor set-up is safe and the decorations are great; The Spanish Meatballs and the vegan Horchata were excellent. The not-as-good: the kitchen forgot part of our order, the food and the drink took way too long to come out; the food was okay: the breakfast torta and the BBB (blackened chicken club sandwich) were okay.

Overall: The restaurant came to us heavily recommended and we are glad we went to Bar Bombon for the experience. The concept of vegan traditional Puerto Rican cuisine is worth trying, but we are unlikely to go back due to our less-than-stellar experience but still definitely recommend others to try it because of the concept, the ambiance and the location!

Didn’t realize it was all plant based. Some menu items are confusing like “Spanish meatballs” which don’t mention that it’s fake meat but otherwise great restaurant!

We were here a few years ago and were so excited to go back when we were in town this weekend. It didn’t disappoint. We would’ve ordered the whole menu if we could have. We’re not even vegan it’s just really incredible food and drinks.

Unimpressed. Waited 30 minutes despite a reservation. Food was just ok- nachos were soggy, cauliflower tacos was just ok too. plantains and margaritas were very good. Would not go back

I brought a friend who is new to plant based dining. He loved the impossible tacos - said he couldn’t tell the difference! The chick’n fajita tacos were not as strong if a sell, but he did enjoy them regardless. They are quite spicy, btw! I will definitely return to Bar Bombon. 😋

We loved the outdoor seating. Our server (Max, I think) was extremely nice and attentive. We love the happy hour menu. We enjoyed the margs, nachos, and tacos. Thank you for a pleasant evening all around.

Get the BBB club. Delicious sandwich. Flavors are so good that it makes the plant based angle irrelevant.

Didn’t even realize it was plant based until we got there but the food was pretty good. Highly recommend the Buffalo cauliflower tacos. Drinks were also pretty good and they had plenty options. We sat outside in one of those wooden structures you see on the sidewalk outside of many restaurants in the city so it was semi-private, which was nice. The chairs were not very comfortable but at least it wasn’t too noisy. The service was PHENOMENAL. Max was our server and I didn’t catch the name of the food runner but she was also polite and helpful. I’d go back.

The food was good put the portions could have been a bit more generous for the price. Also my boyfriend got his food a full 5 minutes before me and he had to sit there and let it get cold before he could start eating.

Menu mot specific with respect to what exactly is the product that produces meaty tasting food. Avocado forgot with tacos.our food was to be shared and was brought to table as single portions . Waitress was doing her best but was bit very knowledgeable,

I'm a huge fan and brought my non-vegan friend here for dinner. She didn't realize it wasn't meat until I told her. We had empanadas, sweet plantains, and rice and beans. I even ordered some to go for my (non-vegan) husband and he thoroughly enjoyed them.

Food and service were great as usual. We sat in the outside tables that were created because of the pandemic and it was extremely hot, no AC nor fans so it was a bit uncomfortable.
