Providence - Chez Pascal Hot Dog cart open yet?
Does anyone know if the Chez Pascal hot dog cart is open for the season yet?
I walked by there yesterday, and didn't see it. It's technically possible that I just didn't notice it, but that would be the first time that I've come within bitin' range of a hot dog and not thought, "mmmmmmmm, hooot dooog."
For reference when they do open, I much prefer the regular to the spicy, and I usually like spicy things. It just seemed to get in the way of the Pure Hot Dog Experience.
what's this???? chez pascal has a hot dog cart??? i am clueless, please describe this. it sounds like an ingenious idea. where is it?
On the first of May, on good word. I hear there may even be a Brisket sandwich addition to the cart.
For those in the un-know, the Hewtins Dog Cart is in the park across from Chez-Pascal, daytime weather permitting. All relishes and condiments are top drawer and made in the CP kitchen---- details forthcoming on this years line up. I think last year there was duck fat braised sauerkraut.
Brisket sandwich? Oh good lord, let that be true.
Yeah, the cart is really terrific, they use an excellent dog and all the condiments are delicious. I'm only so-so on the braised kraut though--I actually would prefer raw kraut for that briney, acidic bite. The cooked kraut, while delicious, isn't my ideal with a hot dog. But it's still terrific. I can't believe I'm finding a way to complain about it.
It's like Providence's own little Shake Shack, but for hot dogs.
Excellent sausage, extraordinary condiments, but the bread... I guess all anyone expects from a hot dog bun is that it keep their fingers clean and be more edible than a napkin.
Something to admire about Spike's - not that it is superb bread but it is an order of magnitude better than the usual.
