Rosamunde is technically a sausage shop, but don’t let that deter you: the grass-fed beef Knockwurst is one of the best high-quality hot dogs you’ll ever sink your teeth into. The meat is free of antibiotics, hormones and nitrates, resulting in a full-flavor dog nestled in a hardy French roll. (If you’re feeling gluttonous, order it Mission Street-style—wrapped in bacon.) In addition to tried-and-true ketchup and mustard, the condiments section includes exotic alternatives like curry ketchup, honey-wasabi dijon and garlic pepper mayo, among others. Pair your meal with a mound of the gut-busting, bacon-topped German potato salad and a beer. The Mission Street location has 26 varieties on draft and 14 bottles, and the original Haight Street storefront shares a wall with the heavy-metal craft beer haven Toronado.
