Sausage is better in the morning. It’s a fact! And that’s why Bubbledogs have decided to open on Saturdays and created a ‘brekkie-dog’. Alongside their new menu, they’ve recruited bartenders from New York and London’s most notorious cocktail institutions to curate a rotating list of what may be London’s most sought after new Bloody Mary’s.
The brekkie-dog is made up of fried egg, tomato relish, crispy bacon and black pudding and you can choose any hot dog of your choosing from their regular menu, including the Mac Daddy (macaroni cheese with crispy onions and bacon bits) and the Small Eye (pickled carrots with daikon, cucumber and chilies, coriander, toasted peanuts and Sriracha mayo), with an additional fried egg on top plus any side of your choosing.

On warm summer evenings, most Londoners would rather be basking and barbecuing on the beach; feeling the ocean breeze in their hair rather than enduring the scorching tube commute.

Their garden space will be open throughout the summer and with the barbecue ready for the duration, it will provide the perfect spot to spend an evening with friends or for a romantic date.
