The avocado dog at Japadog sounds good:




I'm normally not very adventurous when it comes to hotdogs. My favorite is probably just a good 'ole chili-cheese dog, with a thick, no-beans chili and a nice sharp cheddar. No onions, no 'slaw, please!




There used to be a place in Glendale that made AWESOME chili - and you could get it on a burger, hot dog, or (my favorite) chili cheese fries.




So, so bad, yet so, so good!!

I'm not a fan of avocado. Chili can be a hit or miss. No cilantro and I'm good. Who isn't a fan of melted cow curds though....

 

Whatever happened to Argy? You'd think he'd come by what with all the mentions of cheese and all that.

South Street Burger (NY Fries to you southerners) Pulled Pork Poutine

Wikipedia suggests that they're the same, but one offers burgers? I've had the pulled pork from NY Fries rather recently but I can't remember how they tasted. What struck me more was the Thai food in the stall next to it.

I'm glad I'm missed. :smile: I've been sort of lurking and enjoying all the lovely pictures of food. But you're right! Cheese has been mentioned, so now I must break my silence.

 

Personally, I like avocado, but probably not on hot dogs. In fact, I like my dogs pretty plain. I usually just put normal yellow mustard on mine and leave it at that. Maybe some Colman's English mustard (no vinegar) if I'm feeling a bit adventurous (though it's better on sausages than hot dogs).

 

Although when I was much younger I would sometimes drizzle Cholula on my dogs and top them with shredded colby jack and some sliced jalapenos. It's been so long I can't even remember how that tasted. I'll have to try it again next time I have the opportunity to see.

The burgers are quite good but pricey. The one up the road suffers from staff turnover, just when you get em cooking everything perfect they bugger off somewhere else.

 

 

Now if they only had schnitzel:)

I didn't want to expand on my reasoning for avocado hate for fear of being lambasted, but since you're sporting a nice, cat-friendly avatar I feel that now would be the best time.

 

I don't know why people even like that stuff. The texture is strange and the aftertaste is dreck. I've had better luck with urinal cakes (unfortunate story there).

 

Oh and welcome back! Now all we need is Coq. He must be off sniffing dog butts. Ha! See what I did there. Revenge for a couple of posts back when I was away!

 

My ideal dog topping would have to be some mashed potatoes and a heap of relish and some teriyaki sauce. Or just caked in brown mustard.

I figured, pricing in line with the fries.

 

No one wants to be flipping burgers when there's a better schnitzel gig downtown :D

To be fair. They do have an econo burger for 2.99. It's the size of  a toonie. For the Burger deal Wimpy's is the place to go. Football shaped and sized is the norm there.

 

Mashed as a hot dog topping. I think you've got that bass ackwards. Then again if you're basting your lamb with avocados I shouldn't expect much from you should I?

Yeah but that Hastings joint I mentioned has a whole meal for just slightly under that. I feel as if I talk about that place too much....

 

I live to disappoint others. :(

The world around here suddenly went upscale somehow so the 10 dollar burger almost became a defacto standard. Didn't mind it back in the day when Tobys good eats charged that. They were the best damn burgers on the planet.

Oh, do tell! Miss Sakaki would love to know.

Mashed potatoes don't scream "hot dog!" to me, but I won't knock it until I've tried it. I guess I forgot about relish, since I like it on occasion. Now we can have the inevitable sweet vs dill relish debate--I like sweet myself (though I don't loathe dill).

Okay. Only because it's Miss Sakaki.

 

I was having a debate with someone on the usage of language to pass the time, and the adage of washing your mouth with a bar of soap came up. We went on a tangent and my stance was that no one actually does that. In hindsight that cake really did look like a bar of soap (it was not my own pantry so I was unfamiliar with the layout)

 

I think the name of mashed potatoes on hot dogs have been sullied by the inevitable prepubescent thought (that we all invariably have from time to time) of....shall we say, placement of said foods in correlation to one another into the likeliness of....particular human appendages. Of course you could always position them to look like a smiley face like I do. Or just mash the potatoes even more.

 

There's a debate? I happen to enjoy both dill and sweet just the same. This is more of a recent development though. Came across some great stuff that changed my perspective on things (as well as convection ovens, Huts should know...).

Hey! Avocados are a huge part of the local economy in my town, and for 17 years my wife was the head of R&D at the leading guacamole producer in the US. Avocados are also VERY good for you - they are high in the "good" fat that lowers your cholesterol and makes your pet's hair shiny. Avocado oil is also excellent for cooking! It's a wonder fruit!

I'm betting you haven't had the right kind of avocado. If you don't live in avocado country you might not get the good varieties and people might not understand how to ripen them and serve them. I have seen people do the most unholy things to guacamole - like killing it with lemon juice, adding mayo or sour cream, or trying to make it several hours before it is served. Don't do that! Yeah, it looks like baby poop - but when done right (ie, when my wife makes it), it's great!!
