Cuisine: Mexican
Price Point: Mains from £10-£20

This intimate taqueria with attitude does a mean line in Mexican-inspired street food that’s fresh, fiery and fun.

Inspired by their travels through Mexico, Sydney, California and beyond, the menu is a well-curated and offers an eclectic mix of exotic flavours.

Tacos are the focus, with seven regulars to choose from, as well as specials which change regularly. Tempura avocado is an innovative, indulgent choice, while blue cheese is the perfect partner for crispy Buffalo chicken that’s as tender as your head after a night of mezcal tasting.

A neat selection of smaller dishes such as Korean fried chicken wings, Padron peppers with smoked sea salt or the fantastic house guacamole is the perfect way to start. Churros, light curls of donut pastry rolled in crunchy sugar, will ensure you end your meal on a sweet note.

Reviews

This was our first time at Bodega and we were really impressed. It's a lovely little restaurant and the staff were really attentive.
We were a table of 2 and had the guacamole and tortilla chips to start, then a selection of 4 different tacos and street corn as a side. I'd highly recommend the buffalo chicken and anything with their guacamole!
The best quality Mexican street food I've ever had. Would definitely go back!

First time to this restaurant and definitely will be back. Very tasty freshly cooked food. Tapas style so not too big and gives you a chance to try out more and share. It can be BYOB but they have wine there. Staff were great, really friendly attentive but not overpowering. Great overall experience and highly recommend it for food and service

Fantastic food and seamless perfectly timed service. My in-laws were blown away by the flavours and repeatedly stated what a great place we had brought them to. Love love love Bodega!

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Bodega. We loved the atmosphere in the restaurant and the 2 members of staff were really friendly and welcoming. The food was tasty and portions sizes perfect. We did have a bit of a wait for our main course but it was acknowledged without us even having to say anything. And at the end of our meal, we were chased down the road because we had forgotten my husband's phone we had asked them to charge! We will definitely return.

We had the ceviche of the day, prawn and the Korean fried chicken wings. Both very delicious. Then we had two different taco dishes each. Each taco dish has two tacos so it's really good for sharing if you want to try lots of things. There were lots of different and delicious flavours. We're also had two sides, grilled corn and grilled green beans. These were a delicious side and added nicely to the meal. We had a very friendly welcome and service was friendly and speedy.
