― Jarod Kintz, Whenever You're Gone, I'm Here For You
With a planned weekend away falling through only a few days ago, the London contingent decided to make alternative plans and finally try out Dirty Bones in Kensington. As you may have realised by now I'm a huge hot dog fan and Dirty Bones is the gourmet version. Set in an underground space, this vintage, eclectic diner and cocktail bar was buzzing by 7pm and we took or seats with anticipation.
After a quick peruse of the menu we ordered and I was very excited by my baileys/chocolate milkshake cocktail called The 101 Dalmations. It tasted as good as it looks.
As for food, after being told by our waitress that everything was small portions we went a bit crazy and ended up with macaroni cheese galore. It might look humble but it tasted delicious. I also had a 'classic yankee' dog and some fries.
We'd been told we only had the table for 2 hours, but as we didn't get pushed out we ordered another drink instead. Well my Christmas jumper was enjoying the occasion!
On the way out we tried to take a picture with the sign, unfortunately this was the best option. The doorman offered his services, but after 5 minutes of posing for him, thanking him and walking off... we realised he hadn't actually taken one... so we're stuck with this!
I really enjoyed our dinner, it came to about £30 each, service included. It would be a great location for a casual birthday dinner too. Let me know if you go.
