Kamikaze Dog - Beef frankfurter on Hawaiian Bun, bacon bits, caramelized onions, seaweed, teriyaki sauce

Live Action Quick Tips

Did you know….

It’s said that the frankfurter was developed there in 1487, five years before Christopher Columbus set sail for the new world. The people of Vienna (Wien), Austria, point to the term “wiener” to prove their claim as the birthplace of the hot dog.
As it turns out, it is likely that the North American hot dog comes from a widespread common European sausage brought here by butchers of several nationalities. Also in doubt is who first served the dachshund sausage with a roll. One report says a German immigrant sold them, along with milk rolls and sauerkraut, from a push cart in New York City’s Bowery during the 1860’s. In 1871, Charles Feltman, a German butcher opened up the first Coney Island hot dog stand selling 3,684 dachshund sausages in a milk roll during his first year in business.(hot-dog.org)

Plain Hot Dog with Tator Tots

Today I was introduced to a carriage of gold when I came across this hot dog sensation of fantasy called Road Dogs. These chefs of heavenly delight have sculpted some true masterpieces of hot dog art!

There was a great deal of selection from plain hot dogs or all the way to down right scientifically sophisticated dogs of love.

Today I’m feeling a bit inquisitive so I chose a Kamikaze dog which is a 100% beef frankfurter on a toasted sweet Hawaiian bun topped with diced bacon, caramelized onions, roasted seaweed, mayonnaise, sriracha and teriyaki sauce, while my faithful comrade Justin Englehaupt chose his plain with some tator tots.

“Ewwww Trevis, Seaweed!”

Trust me, I thought the same thing but let me say that this was the best hot dog I have ever tasted!

Plump, juicy and flavorful mixed with a slight crunch of the Hawaiian bun combined with sweet tasting sauce with a slight sour from the seaweed and crunch from there as well. Bottom line it was a musical touch on the soul! That’s true live action eating!
