After a little discussion with the staff (they weren’t aware of the deal as it had literally started that day) I got my order in for ribs and I had a pint in front of me. The restaurant was quite quiet with only a handful of others around the bar so it was quite nice and relaxed. I wasn’t sure how long I should have been waiting for my food but after 25 minutes one of the staff noticed I hadn’t got my food yet so went and fetched it. He also gave me a free beer to say sorry. Win!
The food arrived and it was piping hot. My mouth started watering straight away. A whole rack of ribs, beautifully smoked with a light coating of barbeque sauce – it was delicious. The meat was perfectly cooked; soft and just holding onto the bone but coming clean away with a light bite. The chips were hot, crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. The coleslaw was nice and fresh, cutting through the slightly fatty pork.
I’ve only ever had 1 disappointing visit to a Bodean’s restaurant and I’ve been visiting for probably 7-8 years now. If you’re in London and looking for somewhere unfussy to eat then you can’t go wrong with Bodean’s. If you don’t believe me, you ask all my friends I’ve introduced to it over the years!
