10 Really Weird Hot Dogs
Phoenix New Times ^ | Tue., Mar. 4 2014 | Dominique Chatterjee

Posted on 03/06/2014 2:22:15 PM PST by nickcarraway

No longer just a thing of questionable meat byproducts and discarded parts, hot dogs have gone gourmet, and the results are as delicious as the meat choices are surprising.

As home of the Sonoran dog, Arizona is an inventive place for hot dog toppings. Needless to say, you won't find salsa or avocado on this list. Instead, these dogs feature foie gras, peanut butter, turducken, poached egg, potato pierogi, and more. Here are 10 truly delicious yet totally bizarre hot dogs you'll want to track down.

The Dog: Jackalope Where to Get It: Frank Restaurant (Austin)

You'll think the mythical creature really exists after one bite of this in-house blend of smoked antelope, rabbit, and pork sausage. It's served with cherry compote, Sriracha aioli, and cheddar cheese. Enjoy it along with sides like Reuben fries, loaded baked potato salad, Frito pie, and sweet Southern slaw.

The menu features over 20 specialty hot dogs infused with Asian flavors.

The Dog: Shrimpy Chili Where to Get It: Japadog (New York and Vancouver) The all-American food gets a Japanese makeover at this Canadian restaurant -- talk about global flavors. Try shrimp sausage topped with more shrimp and a signature chili sauce. Or, get shrimp tempura served on rice and a hot dog bun. Other unique toppings include bonito flakes, tonkatsu sauce, yakisoba noodles, kimchi, tobiko caviar, and Japanese croquette (fried mashed potatoes). And for dessert have a deep-fried bun with black sesame ice cream.

I can’t believe Anthony Weiner’s weiner isn’t on here. But I don’t like looking at it. So I’ll just include a link to it.

That dog looks like it’s topped with the stuff I feed to my fish.

You can still get a real Coney dog in Detroit or Jackson Michigan.

Accept no substitute.

Just had two Hebrew National jumbo dogs for lunch:

Diced onions, diced tomatoes, celery salt and ketchup.

I’m partial to Toderoff’s because its local to me but Lafayette and American are world famous and nothing to sneeze at.

You had me all the way until you got to the ketchup part! That's almost sacrilegious! :-)

Sorry there are 3 places for hot dogs - 1) Harry’s in Colchester, CT, 2) a hot dog cart in Milford, CT (expensive dogs, but the chef cooks in a tux) and 3) a roadside stand in Litchfield, CT.

PETA probably got into the act, or they’re not as interesting as a virtual pet on the computer.

Used to be virtually every hot dog was pretty much composed of “The Five T’s” - teats, testicles, tongues, tails, and tripe.

Is this no longer the case?

When I lived there, the American Coney Island dog was the best (and not their next door neighbor who's name shall not be spoken :^) ). Yum, Yum, eat ‘em up. 3 for breakfast, 3 for lunch, and a large bag full for the family dinner...hahha.

At Todoroff’s in Jackson you can buy their topping in tubs for making a Coney at home.

Ans...If you can't SeaMonkeys, you need a new eye glass prescription. Hahahaha...Because every day, I see a moneyKey on the news, and this moneyKey is destroying our constitution one EBT card at a time! No offence to you ExCT.

Just went to their web site, really cool looking building. My kind of place.
I love the diagramatic pic on the web site depicting the coney and all the toppings.
Dang, sure looks tasty and looks like a REAL coney. Now I'm hungry and want one or six...
Tomorrow, I will ring them up to see if they ship their sauce and dogs.
Further, I grew up on the American, should my family find out that I ordered from them, I would ostracized.
I still have family in Detroit after all....

Once there was a hole-in-the-wall hot dog joint in downtown Birmingham, Alabama that served the best hot dogs I ever had. It was Pete’s Famous Hot Dogs and it featured a proprietary sauce that others tried to copy but couldn’t. The owner, a Greek immigrant, died in 2011 and he took his secret to the grave. Darn it!
