The mission- New York style hotdogs in Calgary
-New England Style Hot Dog Buns (Portugese buns, split top) Pictured
-Naturally cased extra long beef dogs, like Nathans:
or something like Redhots- similar to German Bockwurst. Pictured
-A decent hot dog relish
If you know of some hot dog vendor that sells this kind of magic- slightly toasted buttered bun with a hot dog boiled and then deep fried or grilled creating that new york "snap."
Also mention your favorite hotdog places! Perhaps better if not Le Chien Chaude- plenty of reviews already, and I'm looking for obscure Calgary goodness.
I was just looking up the german sausage bit and the Frankfurter "Saitenwurstchen" style appears to be similar(but im not sure tastewise)- do I need to go to a specialty meat shop?
just in case you didn't know, and happen to go to vancouver, they sell nathan;s dogs at PHAT deli in yaletown. I didn't get to try one, but plan o when I go back this xmas
