BURGER CLUB: DIRTY BURGEROctober 27, 2012
Down an unassuming backstreet in Kentish Town, you’ll find a car-park with what looks like a small, roofed corrugated iron structure in the corner. If you didn’t know any better, you might take it for bin storage facility for the restaurant round the front. But if you venture inside, you’ll find what a café location fit for a film about 50s biker gangs.
Tarmac floor and simple fittings, Dirty Burger is a quick stop to chow down a gorgeous, gooey, greasy cheeseburger – the only main on the lunchtime menu.
As is often the case in establishments that focus on just the one dish, Dirty’s is flippin’ amazing! Team with crinkle cut or onion fries and a soda, shake, beer or bottomless coffee and you’ve got yourself a mean feed that sneers at airs and graces and leers at the niceties of a pleasant sit-down meal.
A rebel with a cause, Dirty’s unabashed menu is filling a hole for North London’s burger lovers. If it were a human, it’d definitely have slick hair and an unstoppable swagger. Sloppy filthy smutty, slutty, this is the real deal.
Burger rating: 8/10
