Dirty Bones

American Restaurant in London

Dirty Bones

Dirty Bones specialises in American style sticky meat dishes from burgers and short rib to fried chicken and waffles. Luckily for me, a new branch of Dirty Bones opened a few months ago in Shoreditch.

The restaurant has high ceilings and grand decorations with mirrors on the walls, old fashioned adverts and purple sofas.

After seeing so much on Instagram, I just had to try the Mac Daddy, a 6oz burger topped with pulled beef short rib, mac & cheese and homemade BBQ sauce. As we wanted to share, our waiter offered to cut the burger in half for us, which was sweet of him. Sadly, it looked better than it tasted – it was slightly dry and it could have done with more bbq sauce.

On the other hand, the Beef short rib with salted caramel & burnt onion BBQ sauce, crispy shallots and spring onions was AMAZING. It was so flavoursome and just fell off the bone with limited fat. I also rated my side of skinny fries topped with crispy lamb sweet miso, red chilli and jalapeño.

I also rated the desserts – the milk & cookie with milk gelato was so delicious. The soft baked chocolate ganache cookie and the frozen berries and white chocolate sauce on a freshly baked waffle was EPIC.

The atmosphere was good and the service was even better so would definitely return to try out some of the other dishes. Also check out the boozy brunch at the weekends – a great American restaurant in London!
