Ah it's been a while since I've been out to eat and plus have a catch up with Miss Money and Mr Games. Sometimes I miss these two because they can't stop bickering like an old couple (fun bickering of course), but all three of us are good friends.
I made the choice of wanting to go to Bodean's because I know it's American dining style, the food is in big portions and it's in Poland Street (in between Soho and Oxford Street) PLUS I've been wanting to go to this restaurant for a long time. But first we had a small look at TGI Fridays before making our final decision to go here... Mr Games almost took us in the wrong direction but I definitely remembered it wasn't towards the Regent Street area.
There are two sections in the dining area. I'm afraid I forgot to take a picture of the outside and inside, but you can't miss it when you pass the Yo! Sushi (the original one). The top dining area you can order certain foods but in the bottom half you can order everything! You need to book a table if you want to sit downstairs, if you don't book you will have to wait. :(
First we ordered our food and drinks. We all ordered mocktails...
|Mine's the big tall one... Miss Money had the smaller one|
|Mr Games' drink|
Mr Games had this big massive plate of macaroni cheese and chicken. He didn't finish it, but it did taste good.
Miss Money wanted ribs so she ordered the full rack of ribs which came with chips and coleslaw. Ribs were ok.
And I ordered the burnt ends with pulled pork. Ummm. The burnt ends are beef brisket which was dry and not like the very tender beef brisket I usually eat. This was dressed with BBQ sauce. The pulled pork on the other hand was probably the best thing on the plate. Even the other two agreed that they liked the pulled pork! ^_^ I made a good choice of food as the other two didn't finish their food...
Total came to £55.52 which included service charge.
My geeky rating: 4.5/5
- Spacious booth seating
- Good portion sizes of food - very big for the British stomach
- Very American
- Got there early so we didn't have to wait too long (actually zero wait)
- Service charge

In the end we all ended up in Starbucks in Regent Street. I wanted to try out their Filter White coffee... Way too strong. I've had a better version in Dulwich.
