Bodean’s BBQ in London, go here to satisfy your American BBQ cravings or directly after watching an episode of Man Vs Food.
The first great thing about this place was that we didn’t have to queue to get in! There’s ample space up stairs for the snacking of brisket sandwiches or hamburgers, and downstairs is a full seating restaurant, but be aware it is dimly lit down there! The menu is Southern US of A, through and through e.g fries, brisket, burgers, chicken breasts, baby back racks – basically it’s not a place to take your veggie friend!
We ordered the Bodean’s meat platter’ ( with five kinds of meat) to share, this came with fries and coleslaw. The BBQ sauce to accompany it was pretty delectable with a great ratio of smokey and not too sweet flavours. The meat was all very well cooked, but I found the platter, dare I say it, had a bit too much meat! It definitely needed something else to break up the mighty meatiness of it all. So order extra corn cobs, beans, fries or something!
