Date night… we so needed it after all this housework! We were kindly invited to Bodega in Birmingham to try out their menu!
We drove from Coventry and parked in the Mailbox carpark which was only a 5 min walk from the restaurant so it was super easy to get to.
I hadn’t heard of Bodega before, but on arrival, it was clear how popular this little place was! I was shocked at how busy it was for a Tuesday evening!
The décor is so lush, with lots of things to look at and really helps set the mood for the evening.
Looking at the menu there were so many yummy dishes to choose from so we went for an option where we could try 5 of their most popular dishes in a smaller form.
Bless our waiter she did warn us it was going to be a lot of food, but we knew we could take some home if we were defeated!
Spoiler alert, we couldn’t finish it!
For starters, we tried The Cola chicken wings, refried beans, nachos with chilli brisket, quesadillas and sweet potato fries.
My gosh, our table was full with so much yummy food. It all came out so well presented!
My favourite had to be the quesadillas they were so good! I had never tried Cola Chicken before but that was also amazing!
The Nachos were homemade and super tasty, Luke wasn’t a massive fan and would of much preferred them to be nacho crisps.
For mains, I went for the burger… I will just tell you now! This was honestly one of the best burgers I have ever had. It was so good!
Bodega’s Burger a la Parilla 11.95
Homemade 6oz beef burger, cheese and chipotle mayo in a toasted tortilla with sweet potato fries & smoky slaw on the side
It came in a wrap which I loved, it was so full of flavour super juicy and the cheese just oozed out. Making me hungry just writing this!
It was served with coleslaw and sweet potato fries we shared half the burger and took the rest home… I was defeated.
Luke went for the Peanut butter chicken, not something he would normally go for! Now I’m not a fan of peanut butter but I tried it and was just so creamy and lush!

We couldn’t finish it all so we took it home in boxes, the staff were so lovely and organised this for us. Once we were home my dad tucked in and absolutely loved it, he took the leftovers to work the next day. He now wants to go back so another trip is in order!
If you live locally to a Bodega then lucky you as you can now get it delivered to your door… I’m jealous I need another burger and cola chicken!
Have you been to Bodega before?
A huge thank you to all the staff for looking after us we had the best evening!
