Watch your back, Links—Allen Street is getting another frank joint with this Colombian-accented hot-dog shack. The neon-lit, graffiti-covered den doles out Bogotá-style dogs that are just as flashy as the decor. Inspired by Miami's Latin-style dogs, owner Alex Mitow (Neely's Barbecue Parlour) offers ten all-beef tube steaks, with wacky accoutrements, like deep-fried French-toast buns, potato chip and pineapple toppings, and slatherings of strawberry ancho jam. From windows marked “Ordenar,” “Beber” and “Comer" come similarly offbeat options like waffle fries piled high with sliced hot dog and quail eggs; beer-spiked chorizo corn dogs; and Peruvian pepper-topped burgers named after Puerto Rican rap songs; as well as Aguila, Cusqueña and Imperial beers, and Postobón sodas.
