Sunday I headed to @bodeansbbq Clapham for football and food (plus a catch up with the little bro @chesterfreitas). I'll be honest, I've never left bodeans without feeling full and satisfied so expectations were high. Given the best seat in the house under the TV screen things started well.
Mac n Cheese balls were my first order while I waited for my bro. Not huge but bursting with buffness. Covered in bbq I decided to jump in finger first and eat these with my hands.... MISTAKE! As I bit into my first of three the seasoned cheese sauce spilled out over my fingers. It made a mess but my god it tasted good. 5⭐
Bodeans platter for me is a staple order as I get a bit of everything. The chicken thighs were juicy as hell, burnt ends literally fell to pieces in my mouth, the spare rib cooked and flavoured perfect for bbq and pulled pork delivered what we know pulled pork delivers. Now the baby back ribs however. Contributing about 30% of the meat on the plate and crisp just perfect for it to contrast with the bbq sauce these were heavan 5⭐
Burnt end burger ill be honest looks shit. The photo even does it justice and when it was placed on my table I was a bit pissed off...... But f**k first impressions I kind of banged. The plastic looking cheese had a strong cheddar taste to it and the burnt ends added a softness that gassed me after initial disappointment. Patty was decent and an OK size so 3.5 ⭐
Chilli fries were my only let down. Hopes and dreams of a perfect dirty fry were dashed when I looked at this. No love had gone into placing the chili con carne and cheese on top and it sat slumped in the middle of the bowl of fries looking depressed. Taste weren't great either and to be honest I used the pulled pork and bbq to put on my fries from the burger and that was a much better dirty fries combo 2⭐
Overall with amazing service from the mananger @leaadaviessxx and her staff plus a great seat for a great England game topped off with amazing food and a sick selection of beers this place jumped from 4 upto 4.5 🌟
