Dirty Bones: High Fives & Good Vibes

Instagram (381)

Nestled away just off Kensington High Street, Dirty Bones operates as a traditional hot dog stand throughout the day, and a bustling, quirky underground restaurant by night – it’s also my newest hangout for outright comfort food indulgence.

The perpetual grill mate to hamburgers, the hot dog is often left burning at the back of the grill while juicy burgers are snatched up in double-time. However, let’s not forget that hot dogs are equally delicious, and are one of the few foods which are nearly impossible to get wrong. However, there’s a big difference between getting something ‘just right’ and ‘the best hotdog you’ve ever eaten’ – Dirty Bones is certainly perching on the tasty side of ‘the best hotdog you’ve ever eaten’!

When Dirty Bones invites you to try out what they have on offer, you don’t say no! The menu features a selection of playful takes on classic American snacks, using the highest quality ingredients, and Dirty Bones own recipes:

  • The dogs include: The Brit (served with treacle bacon, mature beer cheddar and English mustard); The Frenchie (served with chives, celeriac remoulade, roast garlic puree and crispy shallots); The Asian (served with kimchi relish, crispy seaweed and wasabi mayo); The Mexican (served with pulled pork, cactus salsa, lime sour cream and guacamole) and The Classic Yankee (served with yellow mustard, red ketchup and spring onions)
  • The bones include: fried chicken in a spicy glaze, beef short ribs with Dirty Bones BBQ sauce and succulent Boston rib eye steak on the bone with the signature Dirty Bones glaze
  • Indulgent side dishes include: triple cooked fries, charred padron peppers, bourbon beans, mac and cheese and tomato and chorizo salad
  • Desserts nod to traditional diner classics: milk & cookies and coffee & doughnut
  • The drinks list features cocktails such as: Dirty Bones Martini (olive oil washed Tanqueray, Lillet Blanc, Halidikili olives); Top Dog (Finlandia vodka, fresh strawberries, Chambord and lemon, Jaio prosecco) and Mutt’s Nuts (Woodford Reserve, cinnamon and vanilla infused maple syrup, Angostura bitters, lemon and apple juices).

I had the pleasure of sampling the Frenchie and Mexican hot dogs for my starter, they were both amazing – undeniably classic hot dogs except with a fun and surprising twist. For my main course I had the Boston Ribeye Steak with sides of triple cooked fries, mac and cheese and tomato and chorizo salad – probably the most indulgent items on the menu but I wasn’t holding back! It was flawless! I finished off with the milk & cookies, as well as the coffee & doughnut, and of course, I couldn’t resist the Top Dog cocktail. The whole experience was incredibly moreish.

Dirty Bones brings a slice of raw originality to Londoners who love quality food, drink and music. My only warning is that once you’ve tasted the Dirty Bones hot dogs, you might just need to up your exercise program!
