The basics: This is another one of those "eat a light breakfast" situations. Don't want to be showing up for a chili-dog session with anything less than a full appetite. Owner Keith Garabedian likes to get creative, but he typically starts with a juicy Sabrett hot dog on a perfectly toasted Liscio's Bakery roll (with just a dab of oil). From here, it is scientifically impossible to go wrong, lunchwise.
Options: If it's on the menu that day, try the Chorizo Chili Dog ($5), with chorizo chili, chipotle creme, pickled jalapeno and onions. The more traditional Bronx Bomber ($4.50) has sauerkraut, New York onion sauce and brown mustard. The Vietnamese Dog ($5) offers a lighter option, with pickled carrot and daikon, cucumber, cilantro, onions, jalapeno, spicy mayo and crushed peanuts. The Big Kahuna ($5) has grilled red onions, guava mustard, pineapple salsa and orange habanero aioli.
