Dirty Bones: Mouth-Wateringly Good!

Dirty Bones (1)

Dirty Bones, home to the finest American comfort food & cocktails, and one of my favourite places to go on an empty stomach has recently opened the doors to it’s second branch in Kingly Court, Soho, London.  I stopped by a couple of weeks ago to check out the new venue and tuck into some mouth-wateringly good ribs.

On arrival, I was happy to see that the new restaurant has the same laid back, retro vibe that the original restaurant has (see my previous post on the Kensington branch of Dirty Bones here), paired with an excellent playlist of funk, hip hop and soul music.  I ordered a delicious Lavender Martini straight away to sip on while perusing the menu, which was full of Dirty Bones classics such as the crispy fried buttermilk chicken on waffles with hot maple syrup; charred padrón peppers in citrus glaze; pulled beef; mac & cheese burgers; and four different types of hot dogs.  I can tell you firsthand, when the menu looks as tasty as the one at Dirty Bones, it takes a long time to decide what to have!

Eventually we settled on the Salt & Pepper Squid and Deep Fried Mac Balls for our starters, followed by the Beef Short Rib, The Burger, a Dirty Dog, Mac & Cheese, Skinny Fries and Collard Greens for our mains.  It was easily enough for three people but I was keen to try a bit of everything – luckily we were both very hungry!

The starters were really tasty, the Salt & Pepper Squid was fresh and piping hot, and the deep fried mac balls were extra cheesy, crispy on the outside and warm & gooey in the centre – I had to ignore the fact that they were also a short cut to a heart attack!

My Beef Short Rib was fantastic – it was cooked to perfection – the beef was so tender, it simply fell off the bone with a tap of my fork.  It was braised in coke and then glazed in house BBQ sauce (my mouth is beginning to water as I write this!) – I was so impressed with the dish.  I devoured my short rib without even trying The Burger, but was informed that it too was excellent and judging by how quickly I saw it go down, I could only agree.  The Dirty Dog hotdog contained Dirty Bones barbecue pulled pork, crispy bacon, jalapeno cheese sauce and crispy shallots – again, it didn’t fail to meet expectations – the pulled pork made it quite sweet and the jalapeno cheese sauce would make a great dish on its own.  All of the sides were great – especially the Mac & Cheese, a favourite dish of mine.

All in all, dinner was superb – I loved that the portions were hearty, it’s good old fashioned comfort food and the restaurant is walking distance from my house – in fact, it’s beginning to sound like I may add myself to the growing list of regulars who dine there!  If you haven’t been – go!
