La boheme

La Boheme can be aptly described as a culinary tour of Europe. Packed with German, French, Belgian, Eastern European cuisines and beer, the place aims to be all things to all Europeans.

Crumbed Mushrooms

German Pretzels

Pretzel with Herbs & Garlic Butter

We ordered three entrees to kick start the meal. Two out of three hit the spot. The french snails are probably better left alone as there wasn’t enough flavour (besides the garlic) to make this dish any good. Pretzels and Crumbed mushrooms however, are good treats and should be good crowd pleasers.

‘Everyday I would pray it is Goulash day’ says Paprika in Michael Mcintyre’s cupboard. But I never tasted the paprika in this stew. I think it was substituted for another dosage of Salt.

I don’t think one of us cleaned our plates from the mains. The portions were just huge and too salty. We could have kept drinking to wash down the salt, but despite the extensive selections of beverage, I was running the next day and didn’t particularly want to be sweating European beer.

I boil it down to me not enjoying huge portions as much as I used to. But for a meat and beer fest, definitely head down to La Boheme in Glebe for a feed.

  1. I love La Boheme and went a few times when it used to be in Balmain. I have had the mussels too; the first place I ever had mussels in fact.
