Hot Diggity Dog

A year ago I ventured into New York's Rusty Knot on a hot day and couldn't resist their Pretzel Dog, which New York magazine dubs a "Slow Food pig in a blanket" of sorts. Whatever it is, I'm still thinking about that $4 moment of happiness: fresh rolled brioche pretzel dough wrapped around a Sabrett frank and served with homemade mustard containing Yuengling Lager and thyme. Ballparks should take note and start selling these kicked up puppies stadium-side!

Frau said...

Yum! I'm heading to NYC this summer, putting this stop on my list.

Courtney said...

Because they weren't open when you last visited, Leigh. But seriously...who knew I could love a HOT DOG so very much?! You should ask Colby to whip one of these up!

Joyce said...

This looks tasty and worth a trip to NY. Do they have hot dogs in KL?
Have a golden weekend my friend! xoxo

Amaaaaazing. Yummy.

Joyce: They do, but NOT LIKE THIS!!! I keep kidding with JJ that he's going to come home one day and find me with my own hawker stall to make some extra dough, LOL. Everyone just sets up tables on the sidewalks and pulls food out the back of their van to cook. And these places STAY packed! As long as I make sure my dogs don't contain pork, I could do some bangin' business. I need a partner. Anyone interested :)

O my goodness gracious, that looks divine. Almost as good as the 17 inches of Philly Cheese steak sandwich that I devoured the other day. Ah,pregnancy,the ultimate excuse to be a glutton!
