We say…

In the heart of Leicester city, nestled on St Martin's Square is Bodega, bringing fresh, homemade South American inspired cuisine right to your doorstep. Its locality makes it the perfect place to grab a bite to eat before you shop, or if you're after a break from the bustle and hustle of shopping.

Opened in July 2016, Bodega is part of the already successful chain Bitters 'n' Twisted who have already made a name for themselves in Birmingham and Worcester. The interior focuses on the quirky and unique South American imagery, making you feel as if you've been whisked away to Latin America. With its sugar skulls, Mexican wrestlers and football decor create an vibrant, exciting environment for its diners.

The menu features a range of great tasting dishes, inspired by real recipes from South America. Check out their street food dishes, which include nachos, burritos, tacos and quesadillas. For those with a larger appetite, go for one of their large plates, such as their venezuelan chocolate Chile chicken, which is made from a luxurious chicken breast in a deep, rich sauce consisting of orange, sugar, fresh tomatoes, dark chocolate served with rice and beans. If you're after a lighter bite, we recommend checking their arroz con gambas, an Ecuadorian favourite made rice mixed with marinated king prawns, sauteed onions, peppers, garlic and achiote paste. For those of the vegetarian persuasion, fear not, there is a variety of dishes perfect for you too!

If you've managed to save enough room for dessert, it's hard not to be tempted by their churros, or their pastel de chocolate pegajoso, a homemade chocolate cake with pistachio praline, served with an ice cream of your choice. Each dish is freshly prepare by their talented chefs in the kitchen, who use traditional South American techniques and recipes to ensure you get a real, authentic taste. The drinks menu is equally as impressive and authentic, so why not accompany your meal with one of their mouthwatering cocktails, their handpicked range of South American wines or even their selection of regional bottled beers.

If you're after a true taste of South America, Bodega is the place to be. Not only do they offer some great tasting authentic food and drinks but also quality customer service, so you know each of your visits will be as great as the last.
