I'll never tell anyone how to enjoy their hot dogs, but personally I think most condiments/toppings don't go well with a hot dog. To me less is more. I want to taste the frankfurter, it's spicing, and overall flavor. With the brands, casings, and types of hot dogs (all beef, pork/beef) and the many ways of preparing them, there is plenty of variety without adding all sorts of things that mask rather than enhance the flavor of a simple hot dog. I especially dislike the current "haute dog" trend.
I invite all to join our Facebook page, Hot Dog Nation. There is a current thread pertaining to this topic.
"Not a fan of the trendy new hot dog bistros offering up "haute dogs" consisting of, but not limited to salsa, guacamole, sambal, cream cheese, scallions, kimchee, deep fried mayo, tomato molasses, freeze dried onions, shredded romaine, raspberry wasabi sauce, foie gras, truffles, peanut butter, and other such ingredients that have no business desecrating an All Ameican hot dog.
They've got to be laughing over at old school hot dog joints like Rutt's Hut, Hiram's, and Charlies Pool Room. And questioning the manliness of these new designer "haute dogs." Or as a fellow Roadfooder likes to call them, "Alternative Lifestyle Hot Dogs."
