When I was back in London recently, as well as scoping out great Street Art, I took the opportunity to visit some old haunts. I couldn’t resist the chance to go to Bodean’s BBQ Restaurant in Soho, a place that has provided me with wonderfully tasty food and some special memories.
The restaurant on Poland Street is only a couple of minutes walk from Oxford Street and Carnaby Street and therefore perfectly placed for refuelling on a London shopping trip.
I have to apologise for the grainy photos, which were all taken with my phone. I have to remember to document everything more carefully in case I want to blog about it.
My lunch of choice here is the Chilli Cheese Dog – a 1/4 Pound All-Beef Hot Dog served with a choice of Jalapenos, Grated Cheese or Grilled Onions and of course a generous helping of Chilli.
There are plenty of great choices on the menu though and I would also recommend the Soho Special Sandwich.
There is an informal atmosphere at Bodean’s in both the upstairs snack area, where televisions show mostly American sports, and the downstairs restaurant.
Orders upstairs are placed and paid for at the counter and brought to customers when ready.
When I had the honour of being Best Man for my friend Gareth this was where we had our evening meal on our first night of the Stag Do. The meal was declared a success and I was particularly pleased to see a couple of ‘big eaters’ soundly beaten by the Whole Slab of Spare Ribs.
For me the sign behind the counter at Bodean’s BBQ in Soho sums the place up ‘The Flavour is the Thing’.
