Bodean’s BBQ Smokehouse
Making a name for itself as a London institution, Bodean’s evokes the feeling of a proper American diner. TVs play basketball games all night long, everyone sits in booths, and the muted decor is punctuated by bright neon signs. A great place to chill out and tuck into some pulled pork so tender it practically melts in the mouth. Not a place for vegetarians.

A mangal is a traditional Turkish way of preparing meat over a wooden BBQ. Bringing a relaxed dining atmosphere to Fulham, Best Mangal restores the humble kebab from a late-night snack gobbled down on the drunk walk home, to its rightful place as a delicious main meal. Enjoy a range of meats alongside salads, Middle-Eastern flatbreads and rice.
