Bacon-Wrapped Hotdog

NinoHB714 Aug 21, 2006 04:12 PM

Okay, for lunch I'm in the mood for a bacon-wrapped hotdog with all the fixins. Without having to endlessly drive up and down the street, where in the downtown LA area can I reliably locate a vendor? The garment district?

    On Saturday and Sunday, they are all over the Fashion District. I was there the last two weekends running and saw at least a dozen carts on Maple, Olympic, Santee (Street, not Alley) and Los Angeles. The neighborhood strongly smelled of the onions and bacon from those carts.

      Are these the same folks who have the cart at the Studio City Farmer's Mkt on Sundays?

        Today I went back to the same hotdog location across from Michael Levine. They didn't have the bacon-wrapped dogs. I drove up and down the fashion district and all the carts had were plain dogs. Argh!

          In garment district, right in front of and around Michael Levine:

          Michael Levine, Inc.
          920 Maple Ave - Los Angeles, CA 90015

          You should be able to find two or three vendors on that one block.

              yep, they are a staple in both the garment and toy districts.

                The garment district? '

                BINGO! Especially around lunch time in and around the Santee Alley. :)
