There seems to be an eternal debate in this city over which specialty hot dog establishment boasts a better…can I say…wiener?
In my opinion, they’re very different and I’ve come to love them both.
This week, I was strolling around Mission, so decided to swing by Fat City Franks for lunch.
The options all sound equally mouth-watering, but I had to go for the Mediterranean Dog ($5.99) with a side of home-made slaw ($2.50).
A giant bun was filled with hummus, olives, artichoke hearts, feta and, of course, an all-beef hot dog.
I realize that hummus and hot dogs are not a typical combination, but it worked here, with the toppings providing a nice salty/tangy balance to the creamy hummus.
The slaw was tossed in a simple vinaigrette, which I always prefer over mayo-heavy dressings.
See, hot dogs can be fancy too!
