Dirty Burger, Vauxhall

Dirty burger

I wasn’t wholly in love with Dirty Burger when we visited their first outpost in Kentish Town. The simple concept was good but it was the burger I found disappointing. When I heard the Soho House Group were opening their second Dirty Burger I thought I’d give it a go.

It’s situated on that massive roundabout in Vauxhall and at 11:45am we had to wade through the groups of gurning nightclubbers wearing sunglasses who were only just heading home – lovely!

The outside

Based in an old arch, it had that run-down tin shack Dirty Burger look. There was a counter where you place your order and a few stools round the edge of the room to perch on whilst you devour your grub. It’s not exactly somewhere you’d hang around, let’s put it like that – I left with a sore bum!

The seating

The cheeseburger (£5.50 and the only burger available) was served wrapped in grease proof paper and as I opened it up the smell was heavenly. The burger was really, really delicious; the medium-rare patty packed a meaty punch in terms of flavour and it was drizzled with a mustard mayo which was lovely. The slice of sweet tomato and some crisp lettuce soaked up all the burger juice perfectly. Mmmm…burger juice.

The burger

The crinkle cut fries (£3) were crispy little beggars and their seasoning was spot on. The onion fries (£3) were sadly a little stodgy and grease laden for me – making them a little sickly. They reminded me of Dunkin’ Donuts – but not in a good way. We washed down all the grease with a chocolate milkshake (£4) which was an indulgent delight filled with chunks of chocolate and it was more than big enough to share.

Choc milkshake

Like our first experience in K Town, Dirty Burger Vauxhall didn’t provide a faultless lunch but it was still very tasty indeed and the burger was ten times better than before. If I’m in the area again, on that massive roundabout, I can most likely see myself popping in for a quick bite to eat (but i’ll take a cushion next time). I do love a good burger.
