The pairing of these two fingering licking good menus with the especially created new Dirty Tommi’s dishes means there is truly something for everyone to feast on. Grab your expandable waist trousers and leave your diets at the door for some seriously deliciously dirtaay grub – you have been warned!
I had only ever been to Dirty Bones before for cocktails, although I’ve heard an earful from my foodie friends on how amazing their hot dogs and flat iron steak are, not to mention those dirty fries. I’m already a huge fan of Tommi’s Burgers, so I was pretty excited to test out Dirty Tommi’s on opening night for myself with fellow burger loving pals.
My first impression was how much atmosphere Dirty Tommi’s has on a Sunday night – it immediately ticked a lot of my boxes for what constitutes a great date night venue. Although it’s quite dimly lit in the evening (hence the reason why a lot of my pictures look like I took them in a cave!), there is a buzzing atmosphere with DJs and live music and the décor gives off a retro hot dog bar vibe.

Yes, that’s mac & cheese on top a Tommi’s beef patty with Dirty Bones steak glaze, and a smidgeon of lettuce. I had my doubts when I first placed my order, but holy cow (sorry!), mac & cheese goes great on a burger. The flavour was absolute pure cheesy genius! Washing it down with a Strawberry Shortbread Shake (£8.50) was a must.
A creamy blended mixture of strawberry and vanilla ice cream, shortbread spread, milk, strawberry sauce and a splash of Finlandia vodka – hands down the best way to get your daily dose of calcium. On cold October nights, this comforting boozy shake will not disappoint!
We had to try a ‘dog’ while in Dirty Bones’s home court, so a Tommi’s Burger Dog (£11.00) is what we ordered. A hot dog consisting of Tommi’s burger meat served ‘doggy style’ with confit onion, Dirty Bones short rib, dill pickles with crispy shallots and dirty cheese sauce on top. The Tommi’s Burger Dog is a real showstopper at Dirty Tommi’s Pop Up. It’s easily the dirtiest dog I have ever had!
Another reason I rate this pop up so highly is because of the charming and lovely staff at Dirty Tommi’s. They were kind, knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour, which I always value.
At the end of your meal you are invited to share your feedback in a Dirty Bones notebook, which is filled with pictures of burgers, cartoon hot dogs and romantics leaving their phone numbers and Twitter handles. We couldn’t stop laughing when we stumbled upon Giacomo’s message – LOLZ!
