Many foodie trends come and go almost overnight, but if there’s one craze that has stuck around, it’s ‘dirty food’, or in other words, fast food with a juicy twist. Forming part of this phenomenon, Dirty Burger and sister restaurant Chicken Shop come together in meaty harmony in the Gothic Quarter, following their joint success in Whitechapel, London. “The city is cool, trendy and there are always lots of things happening here. It fits our concept perfectly,” explained manager Christian De Martino. Offering chicken in three portion sizes, three burger options, a host of sides and various drinks, the menu is short and sweet. Set in a long, narrow and dimly-lit diner, the decor is a mash-up of Fifties furniture, reclaimed timber, mahogany, shop fittings and American wooden beer crates. The burgers are tender and rammed full of flavour, while the succulent rotisserie chickens are marinated overnight, steamed and then spit-roasted over charcoal in the open-plan kitchen. As for the homemade apple pie… well, you’ll just have to try that for yourself.
