Bodacious serves up simple and unpretentious food. They serve all-day breakfast menu dishes such as all time favourite Eggs Benedict, among many other chef's specials. It has an outdoor dining area that is sheltered as well as an indoor dining area complete with a bar top counter for beers and more.The interior is very pop culture like with chic and sleek furnishing. The dining area is mainly lit up by natural lighting from the glass windows surrounding the entire bisotro, so you can be sure to get really good photos during the day. The air conditioning was just alright and kept me cool throughout my dining session. The iced water they served was chilled and had a citrusy taste.The menu for the appetizers seems to have something for everyone, including my favourite truffle fries. Their all day menu looked very satisfying but there were interesting items on the main menu like seafood risotto and pan fried sea bass that I was tempted to try. The menu itself is very simple with reasonable prices. Check out the furnishing!1. Mela Merillo $4.20+This was an interesting drink or at least seemed like one on the menu. Listed as a mocktail tea that was strawberry flavoured. I was a bit shocked to see such a huge cup placed on my table by the waiter. Taste wise, it was more like strawberry syrup with peach syrup mixed with some sprite. The temperature of the drink was superb for the scorching hot weather outside.2. Sea bass $16.80+ *Highly Recommended*Pan-fried sea bass in spicy tomato sauce with mash potatoes. I decided to pick this as my main as I felt that it would lighter but I was wrong. The sea bass was huge, in comparison to what is offered at most eateries. It had a very crispy fish skin and my knife exposed a very soft and tender fish meat that tasted both fresh and with the tomato sauce was mind blowing. But sadly, the tomato sauce does overwhelm the crispy fish skin a bit and so the fish didn't stay crispy for too long. The mashed potatos were so soft and no clumps were seen. This was a perfect lunch option and I'm definitely getting it again. I cannot get over the crispy goodness of the fish and the sheer portion of the sea bass!3. Spaghetti Vongole $15.80+A crowd pleaser! Spaghetti & clams in white win sauce accompanied with a tomato salsa topping. We asked if we could get this without the tomato salsa but we were told it was cooked together with the spaghetti. This dish despite not having a spicy warning label was extremely spicy, like peppery mouth burning hot! They used a lot of garlic as well, so fellow office workers around, do check if you have external meetings after your lunch here before choosing this dish. 4. Shibuya Toast $13.80+ *Highly Recommended*Acube of toasted, honey-drizzled, thick and uncut, soft milk bread, decorated with berries, topped with salted butter and vanilla ice cream. The thick toast had a slightly crisp exterior but the interior was kind of dry for my liking, but only on the edges. On the inside, the toast was layered with butter clustered all in the middle, evenly spreaded. The toast had a decent amount of sweet fragrance and when the staff placed it on my table. I could immediately sense my sweet tooth going "wow".Portion is strongly recommended for sharing between 2 or more pax. The toast was still decent. Really really love the texture of their vanilla ice cream, it was so smooth and light, with a melt-in-your-mouth texture. The ice cream was pretty frozen, so after a pro-longed photo taking session, the ice cream finally warmed up to the right temperature for my fork to ease it's way into the ice cream. This shibuya toast is a great option for those with a sweet tooth! My only wish was that this toast should be served with a portion of honey or syrup that we could drizzle over the ice cream! There was some syrup all over the plate, but it just wasn't enough for my "wannabe-diabetic" tastebud!Overall : Loved the ambiance at Bodacious, and their newly revamped menu. Just wished the staff could've been more attentive to our needs during a weekday lunch hour. continue reading

This place is tough to find... hidden at a rather quiet corner at biopolis.. but.. it sits amidst a quaint and quiet surrounding... therapeutic This place exudes a rustic and a little old english charm. Hence expectations rose.1. If you intend to come here in a big group .. either u make a reservations or your group is okay for al fresco dining.2. Limited selections on their menu. We tried their pulled pork burger, fatty duck confitNone were impressive.. I had the pulled pork-> well seasoned rather tender but flavour wise not very tasty.The fatty duck was better a rich layer of fats under the crispy skin.. though the meat was a tad tough..3. Dessert: the churros were good with a cinnamon and sugar but the tiramisu was just average.Overall, the ambience excellent. Maybe other dishes are worth a try. continue reading

One of the new openings in July, Bodacious Bar & Bistro gives the office workers of Biopolis yet another choice to dine at within the already eatery-filled region. Bodacious Bar & Bistro is a new dining concept that is being operated by the same guys behind Long Black Cafe that apparently is just situated right across the road. While Long Black Cafe serves rather simple fare, Bodacious Bar & Bistro attempts to be more upbeat with its menu, serving all-day brunch and popular desserts, as well as mains if one prefers something more savoury and filling.Apparently both my dining partner and I were not too hungry since we both coincidentally ate before we met, so we ordered the Stuffed French Toast ($13.80) in the all-day brunch menu as a sweet post-meal treat. A pan-fried toast soaked in egg batter, we felt that the savoury bread was not soaked with enough batter as the white bread got exposed halfway through, though the stewed apples were lightly sweet but enough to pull through. For those who prefer a sweeter touch, drizzle the toast with the maple syrup available at the side. The berries that came along were rather fresh as well.Spanish Fritters ($8.80) are Churros; a dish that I had already decided to order when I glanced through the menu. These were no-nonsense, coming in nothing but cinnamon sugar; no fancy dips or chocolate sauce. Generous in its serving, we got ourselves filled with the Churros, which were crispy sprinkled in lots of spiced sweetness; something I cannot get enough of!Tried asking for the blends they used here, but the service staff seemed clueless at the beginning and then replied that only the boss knows and never came back with an answer. Whatever it was, the Flat White ($4.20) was bright, cheery and acidic for its body, though it was also roasty as well. Would say its actually rather good.For more photos and the full review, please visit: http://jiaksimipng.wordpress.com/2014/07/11/bodacious-bar-bistro-biopolis-drive/ continue reading
