Filthy Buns serves the filthiest burgers in town.
Yep, you heard that right. The Three Compasses Pub in Dalston is serving Millionaire Short-Rib Burgers with a beef patty, braised short rib, Swiss cheese, and, somehow, the most important ingredient of them all – Biscoff peanut butter. It’s the creation of Filthy Buns, the pub’s famous in-house burger bar that serves wonderfully innovative and mouthwatering burgers. Don’t worry, if that combination doesn’t float your boat, they also have a myriad of other monster burgers for you to feast on. [Featured image: @filthy_buns]
John Gladwell, founder of the burger bar said “Filthy Buns is all about grabbing the humble burger and turbo charging it to give your taste buds a good smack in the chops” and that is honestly the best summary of this dining experience. Mixing savoury and sweet really, really shouldn’t work in this scenario, but somehow, it just does. The rest of Filthy Buns’ burgers are formidable, too – these burgers are the perfect explosion of flavours and textures, and there are so many to choose from.
One of their most popular burger options is The Cheesy House, which does exactly what it says on the tin. It comes with a beef patty, double cheese (red and swiss), smokey gravy mayo, beef ketchup and sweet pickles. The Clucking Katsu is another crowd favourite and if you order it, you’ll understand why. It includes crispy chicken, katsu curry sauce, sweet and sour slaw, smokey miso mayo and sour chillies. They also have five sensational vegan options, many of which come with the most incredibly convincing vegan chicken and bacon. However, the Chickish Gam Biscoff is the one for you, should you want to experience Biscoff in your plant-based burger.
These burgers definitely won’t break the bank either, as they are all between £8 and £11 each. And on Mondays to Wednesdays this month, you can enjoy one of their ‘filthy bun…dle’ meal deals that includes a burger, fries and a craft beer all for just £12.50.
You’ll also find hand-made ice cream sandwiches from Happy Endings on the menu, which are almost as indulgent as the burgers. And luckily, if you fancy a drink during your meal, you’re in the right place. This pub serves plenty of craft beer, cocktails and allegedly, the best Guinness in Dalston!
