3 London Foodie Faves

Dirty Bones

Dirty Bones is a burger and ribs shaped gem in the middle of swanky Kensington. Not that it isn’t swanky itself. The retro lamps, tiled tables and gaming machines juxtaposed with palms creates a modern yet fun feel. Food wise, yes it’s American style and yes there are burgers but the atmosphere of the restaurant means you may as well be eating scallops.

We went for the salt and pepper squid to start and then opted for the beef short rib which was filling, dripped off the bone and tasty as. Obviously I had to go for The Burger too (the rules) but I’d vote to check out the other western specialities instead if you’re not bov’ed about burgers. One thing I implore you to do though is leave room for desert. Its imperitive that you order the peanut butter cookie cup/dream in a Kilner jar. Just bloomin’ do it.

And if Kensington is too far to travel then good news, they’re opening a new branch in Kingly Court in September!

YEAH! Burger

If you haven’t heard about YEAH! Burger yet then you will soon. The Kings Cross pub residency pop up has just doubled its juicy, meaty output and set up shop at Strongroom bar in Shoreditch. The place is well worth a hang out anyway with it’s cute hidden courtyard and art feel.

Don’t worry, I’ve tried the beef and chicken burgers and I can announce that they’re both excellent. As are the cheesy chips with cheese evenly distributed throughout the bowl (which any cc fan will appreciate is highly important.) There’s also word of a scotch egg burger running on the menu for 4 days longer whereby the brioche bun is replaced by half a scotch egg. Can it get any better?! No.

Chilango

Chilango in Camden is a quick lunchtime fix that makes you feel like you’ve splashed out in a restaurant. One of those hybrid sorts of fast food places that does filling, hot food and nice places to sit. The best thing about this Mexican? Other than the cheeky lunchtime frozen Margheritas, the decor wins by 100 points. Kitsch retro TVs and colourful piñata? I’m in!

Fill up on a Burrito or tasty tacos and be back to work 10 mins later. Not in Camden? Check out their 8 other London locations.
