We were out for the early music on Frenchman and stopped by Bamboula's to grab a bite a few drinks before continuing our evening. I had really high hopes because it was a new place and the menu sounded really great. Unfortunately, both of our meals were pretty disappointing. First, it was only 6pm on a Friday and they were out of alot of stuff. I ordered the Caribbean plate with the brisket and the pulled pork with the island slaw and black beans/rice. The meats tasted the same and were overly spicy and the island slaw didnt have any flavor at all. My boyfriend got the sliders and had the same comment about everything tasting the same. The service was very friendly but they charged me for a more expensive meal. They corrected it for me but when I received the credit card receipt to sign it was for a different amount than the bill. It just felt a little sloppy overall. I think they should lose trying to be a restaurant and stick with drinks and music.. which seemed like a great one.
