Description: A dream of flavour. Flavour that leaps out at you, gets you in a headlock & slaps your lycra-clad butt. Fresh, vibrant, fusion flavours like you get in california, new york, sydney & (gasp!) London.... After eating our way around all those places, we wanted to bring our little piece of the streetfood revolution to edinburgh. & So we did. BODEGA opened in august 2013 with a mini menu & a big plan: to bring tacos to town & change the way edinburghers felt about mexican. Our ethos was fresh, vibrant, innovative & exciting food. We hope we are delivering on that, because we sure keep getting excited about it.

“Tasty Food”
Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

Having watched the former Frankfurter Eck being transformed over the last few weeks, we decided to pay Bodega a visit on their opening night. The menu is limited - just 3 starters and about 7 types of taco for the mains which come in pairs. But this meant we were able to try most of the tacos as well as samples some sides. The food comes out as it is ready so it is nice and fresh. And these were tasty tacos. Our favourites were the shrimp and he orange pop beef, but that does not mean the rest were not good. Far from it. The portions are a little small, so if you are hungry order 3 pairs of tacos rather than the 2 they suggest. Or get some rice to go with them. This is BYOB but we tried the Mexican fruit juices which were deliciously refreshing. With friendly service thrown in, this place promises to be another favourite of ours. We will definitely be back.
