Out and About: Bubbledogs

A few weeks ago, Mr G, my sister-in-law and I checked out Bubbledogs

Can I have hot dogs? YES! Can I order bubbly? Of course! Do you make cocktails? Naturally! Will there be cute cartoon drawings everywhere? Indeed! Are the toilets cool? Yip.

Can you have a table?
Uh. No!

After much wrangling, we managed to bag a table for about 9.30/10pm, eugh. Not great.  A little bit of hustle and an embarrassing fall in front of a long line of people (plus a throbbing toe) later and we managed to get a seat at the bar for a drink (three glasses of bubbly, but they also have a cocktail list, which I intend to go back and try) at about quarter to nine and shortly afterwards, at a bench for some hot dogs.

We decided to get four dogs between the three of us:
  • Trishna Dog (mint, mango chutney, and coriander)
  • Buffalo Dog (deep fried hot dog with spicy buffalo sauce, blue cheese, pickled celery and celery seeds)
  • Sloppy Joe (bubbledogs chilli, onions, and cheese)
  • José (with salsa, avocado, sour cream and pickled jalepenos)
and also ordered some tots (cheesey croquette-type bites) and some sweet potato fries. Yum!

The bill came to something very reasonable (the dogs are between £6 and £8 each and the sides are about £2.50 or £3.50 each) and, when the novelty wears off and you don’t have to wait three hours for a table it’ll be the perfect place for a cheap and cheerful dinner with your mates.

It’s not fine dining – it’s FUN dining, and I highly recommend it!

P.S. You know I can’t resist a toilet snoop – well the loos are unisex and covered in “annotated” menus from famous restaurants around London. Very cute! Look out for them if you go...
