Dirty Bones Kensington
While today's fast food openings often spring from streetwise pop-ups, Dirty Bones has an altogether more Kensington feel. The finished product is a "funky" and "fun" spot offering a "clever" take on American comfort food. Divided between cocktail bar and no-bookings restaurant, it's an artfully grungy mix of parquet walls, retro-chic tiles and vintage knick-knacks. Our dirty dog (a juicy homemade frankfurter in a brioche bun topped with pulled pork) and a 'pink mac daddy burger' loaded with mac 'n' cheese and more pulled pork, were joyfully decadent creations, while sticky chicken wings and salsa-topped fries formed a perfectly commendable supporting cast. Cocktails are a big deal too (check out the daily happy hour), while service is sprightly and sweet. "Great midweek deals" will keep you coming back for more.
