Top-quality New York-style hot dogs. And more dogs. And free toppings, including Polish sauerkraut. And did we mention the hot dogs?
Hot dogs: much maligned by those who care about what they eat due to their uncertain provenance and comical appearance. The fact they’re also known as ‘wieners’ doesn’t help.
But here to save the skin-clad meat tube from ignominy is Big Apple Hot Dogs, formerly a mobile cart (which started out on Old Street) and now in its first permanent spot. The company uses specially commissioned sausages made from free-range pork and buns baked by a local bakery.
There are various sizes and meat combinations (pork, beef, pork and beef) and the full range of expected condiments that are guaranteed to be decorating your top before the last bite. And the taste is a revelation for those who would normally avoid hot dogs – coarsely meaty, flavoursome and evocative of baseball games, world's fairs and competitive eating. Delicious.
