Brunching over East @ Dirty Bones

 

Im always so delighted to be invited to a restaurant or bar that is situated in Shoreditch because if I’m honest I’m always far too busy or a little lethargic to venture over that side of town, so when something like this pops up its the perfect excuse to visit an area that I’m particular pretty fond of. 

Most people refer to the East as hipster and full of youngsters, which it is, however some of the coolest establishments are located just north of Liverpool Street and there is something for everyone ranging from food markets, eccentric bars, stylish coffee shops, pop ups, clubs & live music venues.

In saying this, I wanted to finally let you know about a brunch I was asked to review in the heart of it all, which would be the all American restaurant and cocktail bar called Dirty Bones. (wicked name)

To start of the brunch soiree, I ordered the Dirty Mary drink and if you can take one guess as to that what that might be referring to, then yes you would be right to say its a take of the Bloody Mary. An essential morning item with no explanation required. 

The menu has quite a fascinating selection which is what I enjoy about coming to places such as these because they aren’t your stock standard range of food courses and you know how I am when it comes to food and originality – cant get enough of it. 

To order, I had the chicken waffles which probably most of you know by now is a rather ravishing fried egg, golden waffles with a shot of maple and two decent sized legs of fried chicken. I understand this is not healthy by my standards however this is becoming quite the brunch dish of choice lately and to be honest, sometimes we just have to not be so hard on ourselves and appreciate a naughty treat once in a while. Also with this dish I will point out that the chicken is slightly pink inside, so please don’t be alarmed by that or let it put you off the dish completely as its totally fine!!! 

Nick and I shared some melted cheesy fries which were without the truffle, although I would have preferred this but I have to keep the boy happy. He had the steak and eggs which is quite a hearty dish for brunch but I suppose if its the middle of the day then its acceptable on this occasion. The steak itself was juicy and tender and the eggs I believe were cooked ever so nicely.

 

After a noble amount of food I was still feeling on the thirsty side so opted for a post brunch soother called the Lexy. This is a vodka based cocktail with prosecco, lemon and strawberry puree.

 

But this wasn’t all folks..!

 

After the waiter swayed us to try the caramelised banana waffles, we both looked at each other and thought why not, if we share it wont be as bad and hopefully without having to undo the top button of the jeans!! C’mon we’ve all been there. 🙂

Its set in quite an old building with classic architecture but I just couldn’t work out if it used to be an old pub until I did some digging and found out that its a Grade II listed heritage building. Fancy Fancy.  They also have decks set up which are used on the weekends for late night drinking and I hear some table dancing goes on after the supper has ended – oh I say! Its a bit of a climb to reach the loos so don’t leave until the very last minute, but all in all its a generally cool place to come and eat, whether it be morning, midday or evening. The staff are undoubtably welcoming and seem to be having a great time which is just as important that they are having as much fun as the customers are!
