Food Review: Bodacious


Bodacious Bar & Bistro is the new kid on the block located in the heart of Biopolis. The place gives off a cool vibe with its dark and retro-chic decor. The food is simple, nothing really impressive but worth a try. They serve all-day breakfast and prices are reasonable, with main courses priced between $15-$20.


This was an impromptu visit as my batchmates and I were craving for churros. We originally wanted to try Spanish Doughnuts but I was too tired to travel all the way to town, so we settled for Bodacious as we were around the area. Upon entering, we were greeted by the friendly and cheerful staff. Moreover, their service is prompt and excellent. Our food was served quickly too.

Spanish Fritters ($8.80)
Churros doused with cinnamon & sugar

The churros were alright. They were crispy on the outside but lacked the soft fluffy insides. Instead, the inside was dense and mushy. Unfortunately, they were also not sprinkled with enough cinnamon and sugar. The cinnamon taste was barely there and they were not sweet enough. My friend commented that she preferred Habitat Coffee’s. The chocolate sauce was also neither rich nor thick enough to satisfy my sweet tooth. Additionally, they were not generous in their portion of the sauce.

Farm-Fresh Breakfast Plate ($16.80)
Buttery scramble, grilled tomato, toasted brioche, homemade jam and back bacon and sautéed herb mushroom

Two of my friends shared this and I only tried the scrambled eggs. They were slightly overdone as they didn’t have the right texture. It was spongy and a bit on the dry side, so they were not to my personal liking.

Mexican Enchiladas Beef ($14.80)
Ground beef wrapped in cheese melted corn tortillas flavoured with spicy tomatoes salsa and enchilada sauce

This was okay. The tortilla was a little soft and it would’ve tasted better if it were toasted. Moreover, weirdly enough, the melted cheese was stuck on the plate. The salsa was tangy and the sauce tasted fine. Kidney beans also accompanied the tortillas and they complemented the dish. Overall, the combination of flavours went well together but it was an average-tasting dish, nothing to shout about.

To sum it all up, the food at Bodacious Bar & Bistro is, I quote, ‘simple and unpretentious’, as stated by the restaurant. This cafe is great hang-out place for those who working in the Biopolis area, especially if you’re up for drinks and decent food. However, I would not go out of my way to come here, considering that I don’t even work yet. Hahaha.
