So it happened. I went to Dirty Burger. I don't know what to say. I may be in love. This is a phenomenal statement to make, but this would have to be up there as one of the best burger joints I have eaten at in London. Unfortunately the photos do not do this appealing and delectable combo any justice.
Dirty Burger is located in Kentish Town and Vauxhall. I haven't had the chance to grace the Vauxhall location, but I assume it is just as grungy and shack-esque as its Kentish Town counterpart. The Kentish Town location is in a small, run-down looking shed behind Pizza East. If it wasn't for the Dirty Burger logo gracing a corrugated bin, I would have been lost.
Enter the restaurant and it is, as the name suggests, a dirty little venue (obviously not in the literal sense of the word dirty, but you know what I mean) that sparks the tangy essence of moist, sizzling beef and potatoes fried to within a few inches of their lives.
From the grill to the brioche bun and all the added condiments and fillings packed in, their staple (and only) burger, the cheeseburger, rears its glorious self onto a plate straight in front of you. Waiting for this master piece takes skill, so I suggest you order a chocolate shake (by far, one of the best I have had).
