Firstly I’m not going to apologise for another burger post because I did warn you and secondly this is not just a burger! It’s a burger with mac & cheese and pulled beef short rib!
Last night I enjoyed a lovely evening in Dirty Bones, Kingly Court just off Carnaby street to celebrate a friends birthday. The small but funky restaurant had the American BBQ feel similar to many that have popped up over the city in the last few years. Having checked out the menu online prior to going last night I already knew what the star of the show for me was going to be, but with a menu filled with buttermilk fried chicken, burgers, dogs and ribs there’s more than enough meat to go around and satisfy a group of you.
Trying to be good and the fact it was only Tuesday I planned on ordering a soft drink, but for some reason the Dirty Mary jumped out of the menu at me and before I knew it was being delivered back to our table. With just enough spice to kick the taste buds into action this cocktail was a mix of spice and nice. Sour cream Pringles crushed around the edge of the glass and instead of the token celery stick (which if I’m honest I did slightly miss) a ribbon of cucumber decorated the glass.
Now for the main act “The Mac Daddy”.
What a picture perfect burger, which I couldn’t help but stare at for a while before tucking in and of course taking a photo to share with you guys! The creamy mac & cheese oozed out of the burger smothering the pulled beef short rib that sat a top a medium rare beef patty.
How on earth do you eat it? I went for a knife and fork but get stuck in whatever you do.
The mac & cheese had a smokiness to it that really set off and worked well with the tangy sweet BBQ sauce. The pulled beef short rib was tender and rich whilst the patty was cooked perfectly. Served with house pickles and a side of coleslaw, which isn’t for the faint hearted *chilli alert*.
Everyone’s meals looked great and devoured pretty quickly so whether you order the fried chicken, burger, dog or ribs you’re in for a treat.
Dirty Bones also has a place in Kensington, so Central or West London you don’t have an excuse to not try it out!
