Taking To The Street – Ramen Pop Up

Location: Palo Alto @ 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Mitchell Park

Price: $16/bowl for Pork Belly Ramen with Dessert and $25/bowl for Pork Belly Ramen with Supplemental and Dessert

Instead of a full-blown dinner event, we are going to serve a pork ramen course with a dessert.

Since this is our first “casual” event we are keeping it simple and having only one flavor of ramen. The ramen will be a broth made from chicken, beef, and pork and topped with a lot of slow cooked pork belly and a 63 degree egg.

A sample photo of the ramen: The dish on Wednesday will have a lot more pork….

For a supplemental fee, there will be an additional topping available. Please email for details of the ingredient. There will only be six servings available.

Dessert will be mochi with a yogurt mousse and raspberry filling.

We are only serving up 20 bowls of ramen and you must buy a ticket electronically since there will be no cash transactions. No tips, just ramen goodness. Luckily with any smart phone, you can pay via Brownpaper Tickets at the location.

We hope to see you out there…


Come Join La Bombilla in Pacifica on August 18th..


We are very close to selling the minimum amount of tickets needed to guarantee our location on August 18th, but we need more. This menu is very exciting and offers a Japanese influence with a modernist touch. Influences are from the great restaurants of Alinea, Le Bernardin, El Bulli, Morimoto, and Momofuku.

If interested, please take a look at the August 18th event details at

The location is truly beautiful and very convenient to SF, and the Peninsula.

Warm regards,


Last Minute Notes and Wine Pairing Suggestions for July 14th

Good Afternoon,

For those that have signed up, we are looking forward to serving you on Saturday evening at our location in Pacifica. We wanted to make one last mention that we do have seats available for Saturday so it’s not too late to join us. If you cannot make it, thank you for your interest and we hope to see you soon. Details are found here:

As promised, we wanted to give some guidance on the wine pairings before the event. In addition, we plan to serve a couple of cocktails during the course of the dinner.

For the vegetarian menu, we suggest crisp white wines or lite Spanish or Italian red wines.

For the regular menu, we suggest lite Spanish red wines and then later on in the menu, Cabernet, Malbec, or a Zin to balance out the foie gras.

We are very excited about this dinner and thank you very much for the support!

La Bombilla’s July14th Dinner Is Now In Pacifica

Dear La Bombilla Dinner Club,

We have a lot of followers in San Francisco, and the current San Jose location was just too far away for many people. To facilitate our guests we found a great location in Pacifica, minutes from Highway 1 and easy access on and off the highway. The location still allows for BYOB and the best feature of this location is the interaction between the kitchen and the guests.

At the new location each guest will be able to view the kitchen as we prepare your dinner.  One of the drawbacks of the San Jose location was the distance from the kitchen to the dining room. With the new location you will have a much nicer dining experience and have more interaction with the kitchen than ever before. I certainly hope you can join us. Due to the size of the location, the guest limit is strictly held at 20 to insure an intimate and exciting dinner event.

I welcome you to view the photos of the location and the tentative menu.

Kind regards

La Bombilla Dinner Club
