Over the last 12-months Parisians have gone USA crazy: After the burger trend that saw the opening of new joints like Big Fernand and Blend (see our Best Burger feature), and arrival of food trucks like the 104’s pizza van, it’s ‘chien chaud’ (hotdog) time at the new H*** Hot Dog House.
Choose between three types of topping – pickled cabbage, chilli or caramelized onions – all served in squidgy white baps with mustard, ketchup and fried onions. The beef sausages are thin, but meaty and ample for ‘normal’ appetites – but hungry hounds should order two, or opt for a full menu, which includes crisps and desserts (think muffins, cookies, brownies, donuts, and ice cream). Wash it all down with a bottle of Bud, iced coffee, or fresh fruit juice (banana, orange, carot, ginger, melon, celery, pineapple or apple). Get there early and you might be lucky enough to grab an outside table (there are only two).
