Bossa Nova on Sunset

SauceSupreme | Apr 13, 2007 11:51 AM

Craving a late night bite, a buddy of mine and ducked into Bossa Nova. I was just hoping for a simple sandwich or a burger and he was just hoping for a salad of some sort but neither of us wanted to resort to going to a greasy spoon. Bossa Nova is anything but: it's got simple but comfortable decor, and it's got a cool vibe that's a mix of local scene and neighborhood hangout.

We started with the coaxinha app, which we didn't know what to expect, but came out looking and tasting like the world's greatest chicken nugget. The breading was very flavorful and the shredded chicken inside, though a little on the dry side, was still very tasty.

I had a chicken club, and while my vote for best club sandwich still goes to Joans on Third, I have to say that the bread used for this sandwich was excellent. Buddy ordered a shrimp and walnut salad that was nicely seasoned and dressed. We both also ordered a beer (me: Chimay Blue; him: Duvel) and opted for just a latte for dessert.

Total after splitting an app, two dinner entrees, two beers, two lattes, and tax came to $50. I'm also intrigued by their HUGE delivery area, which goes as far south as Wilshire and as far east as Western. I will definitely be taking advantage of this spot again soon.
