What's Up Dog, SF
- Melanie Wong Feb 3, 2007 12:51 AM
Lunch on the run yesterday was a plain ol' hot dog from the What's Up Dog on Bush in SF's Financial District. Even though it was rather late in the lunch hour, the grilled dog served up instantly seemed in fresh and in good form without telltale dessication from holding too long. All beef, it had a snappy casing and nice spicing. The bun was a bit dry, not toasted, but good integrity. When I asked the source, the employee didn't know but volunteered that it was different than the usual bun in use and might become a replacement. I would vote for it.
Grilled with grill marks?
Celery salt or poppy seed bun anywhere in the establishment?
Polish, hot links or italian sausage on the menu?
Sigh, I do love a good hot dog.
I think I like their selection- will give it a try. I just read on the web somewhere they order from the same distrib as Top Dog
The menu shows a relatively correct Chicago-style dog (not on steamed poppy seed bun) AND they have slaw for a slaw dog. A friend recommends eating a super spicy hotlink with cole slaw- the hot and cool forming a nice mix.
I have never been too thrilled with them dogs although better than most.
Still looking for the most flavorful steamed dog and bun.

Hey Gary! Tana's active on that other board (haven't seen you over there much, lately), but I don't think she cares too much for the CH interface. Good to see you, too.
Melanie, I will definitely speak to them about the bun next time. I'll report. (Heh. Finally figured out how to use the 'reply' feature.)
