Like most American foods, hot dog styles vary by region. In New York, a dirty-water dog gets a simple squirt of ketchup and yellow mustard, while a Chicago dog is a more complicated affair, loaded not only with mustard, relish and chopped onions, but also with dill pickles and sliced tomatoes. The lesser-known—but much-beloved—Seattle-style dog is an altogether wacky specimen, a split, griddled all-beef link showered with grilled onions and schmeared with—wait for it—tangy cream cheese. Much, much tastier than they sound, Seattle-style dogs reach their apex at this ever-thronged downtown cart. Add a little BBQ sauce and mustard for a surprisingly delicious creamy, sweet and spicy snack.
