Hot Phoenix Wine Bar

Bomberos, which is Spanish for fireman, is the perfect name for the relatively new N. Central Phoenix wine bar/cafe housed in an old Sunnyslope firehouse. The cafe has a Latin theme featuring a selection of South American wines and Latin American beers. The menu is small; with just a few panini, bruschetta, meat and cheese to choose from.

I met a friend, after work, at Bomberos and we shared a cheese plate and a bruschetta plate. The cheese plate included a choice of three cheeses from a selection of 5. We decided on the Brie, Manchego and Iberico. I was pleasantly surprised at how large the plate was when it arrived. We were given 4 chunks (yes, some are missing from the photo below) of each variety to share along with some nuts and dried fruit. Accompanied by a basket of crackers this could easily be a small meal for someone.

The bruschetta is also a choice of 3 from a list of 5. We picked the salami and Manchego with pesto, the Brie, prosciutto and dried figs and the flaked tuna. Each was split into two nice sized portions which made it very easy to share. Out of the 3 I think the flaked tuna was my favorite: although the combination of flavors in the salami and Manchego was amazing.

Bomberos is a cool, or should I say hot, new place to meet for a drink or a small bite to eat. I would definitely recommend it.
