If you are reading this and you happen to know me in person – you probably know that I looooooove hot-dogs. In fact, I think I’m the talk of the town for this. So it was only natural that one Friday evening I found myself in a funky place hidden away from the onlookers of the busy High Street Kensington – a hot-dog heaven, also known as Dirty Bones.
A classic hot-dog kiosk in Kensington Church Street by day, Dirty Bones is a funky quirky New York-style restaurant and cocktail bar by night. With its electric retro interior designed by Lee Broom (who is behind the interior design of Christian Louboutin store in Harrods, Nightjar speakeasy hidden bar in Old Street, Mark’s Bar in Selfridges and many more), Dirty Bones is the East-London-meets-West-London kind of place where you West Londoners who are hipsters at heart go to satisfy their East London cravings.
Offering 6 gourmet hot-dogs (Classic Yankee, Brit Dog, Frenchie, The Mexican, Asian and Burger Dog) that are available in pork, beef and veggie (they can even be served naked), Dirty Bones’ menu features dishes ‘on the bone’: beef short ribs, chicken and Boston ribeye steak on the bone – created by the Group Creative Development Chef Ross Clarke (ex-Fat Duck Experimental Kitchen). Make sure to leave space for desert – the Coffee & Doughnut is a perfect combination of the best classic doughnut in the world and a coffee ice-cream frozen in a glass.
The mouthwatering menu goes well with the indulging cocktails. 101 Dalmatians, Mutt’s Nuts, Down Boy!, a signature Dirty Bones Martini or a very special Steak to the Heart will tease your tastebuds and trigger your explorer instinct – you will want to try them all. Luckily, the restaurant is open Tues-Sat from 6 pm to 12 am (6 to 10 pm on Sundays) and every Thursday, Friday and Saturday there is a DJ spinning cool tracks from 9 pm till late so your cravens for hot-dogs, show and good time will be 100% satisfied!
