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!

I've been to this lovely restaurant before and really loved the food. It's hard to make flavorful vegan food. This time however, I invited out of town guests and found the food lacked seasoning and we asked for salt but waited a while to get it and by the time we did the food was cold. I'm disappointed for the amount of the meal that it wasn't the quality I got the first time. Going out to eat is a pleasure and splurge. I really hope that the food I go out to eat is exquisite. I'm sorry to find that this time it was not the case.

I have been a vegetarian since 1993. Living in New York City, I have been lucky enough to have eaten at top veg restaurants, but my dining experience here far exceeded any expectations. My boyfriend is a meat eater & we have travelled to Puerto Rico. Our dining experience surpassed what we ate there. Highly recommended & immediately texted many of my strict vegan friends to put this on their list! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Two of us for dinner. We shared the buffalo cauliflower and 'beyond meat' tacos. We also ordered the plantains and spicy guacamole. Everything was delish! We are not vegan or vegetarian but enjoy great food and a nice experience. This was exactly that! We will be back again and again - highly recommended :-)

The food was yummy, our server was great, and a cross breeze made it tolerable to sit outside. Our favorite dish was the empanadas.

It was super great. The menu options were amazing. A lot of Mexican which is great. But could use different cuisine types. I am in love w Peruvian food. For I am Peruvian so I am glad I can have vegan Peruvian food somewhere. I also love the vegan pisco.

I definitely recommend to have a reservation before you get there if you don't they most likely see you in the alleyway. I went during happy hour and had the Puerto Rican rum punch and it was amazing. The nachos with the spicy beef was also really great .

The food and service are incredible at Bar Bombón! We like to take vegan and non-vegetarian guests from out of town here and they all love the food. The brunch is particularly good.

I am not vegan, but if all vegan food were this good I definitely could be! Absolutely fantastic, and the salted grapefruit margarita was amazing as well.

The food was good but mostly unexceptional except the plantains which were delicious. The margaritas were on the weak side. Our server was functional but did not engage with us at all. 5 entrees we’re brought out at 3 different times with no explanation. Based on the prices you could get better value elsewhere unless you want to pay for sitting in their cute little green shacks.

The food was fantastic. Where it lacked was service. When we sat down, we were not given utensils. We got our appetizers and still had no napkins or fork or knife until we finally asked for them.

DELICIOUS! Fantastic dining experience, and everything we tried was amazing. I would say the meatball appetizer and empanadas are a must, although everything we had was delicious! Also, my husband and I do not follow a vegan lifestyle, and I can tell you that if you're in the same boat, you will have no idea that you're not really eating meat :) We cannot wait to go back. Enjoy!

My partner and I are both vegan. We were looking for an all vegan restaurant and I came across this place on Open Table. This is one of the best vegan restaurants I’ve eaten at in Philadelphia. Everything was so tasteful and the service is amazing. I would highly recommend Bar Bombon.

This was my first time at Bar Bombon but it won’t be my last. I’m usually hesitant at going to all vegan restaurants because I’ve been disappointed in the past but Bar Bombon surpassed my expectations. From the amazing food and drinks to the exceptional service provided by our waiter Kevin they have definitely a lifelong customer. It’s a true tapas style restaurant so it was fun to try and share different dishes and the La Cura cocktail was phenomenal… definitely a 5 star experience.

Haven't been here since before the pandemic and it was just as I remembered. Food is always good, although usually a little oily. Portions are large, wait staff friendly. The menu on the smart phone is .. smart ... but also a bit annoying, especially if older folks are in your party. We were the only diners inside at lunch time (others preferred the outside seating) and the music was still too loud to hear normal conversation. Menu has changed a bit, but all good options.

We love to eat here for a lot of reasons. Firstly, for this to be a vegetarian menu, it allows us to not think about what we can and cannot eat on the menu. Second, the food is so delicious that we almost always have a hard time choosing between offerings. Third, the atmosphere and playlist is always on point and adds a nice touch to the dining experience. The service is excellent here and I appreciate not having to wonder what happened to my drink order or when is my food coming out. This is definitely a recommendation to anyone to enjoy!!!!

The food was perfect, the service attentive, but it's disconcerting to sit in the street with large trucks passing close by. This isn't the restaurant's fault. I blame Covid for forcing dining in the street.

The new chorizo burger was flavorful, filling and messy (not a date night food option, but delicious). And loved my usual go to, Peruvian Yuca. The indoor ambiance was intimate with partitions between tables as added protection in a small space. Great dining experience overall.
