Chicago sacrilege? Non-beef hot dogs?
Don't beat me up over this, please. I'm a Cleveland chowhound coming to Chi-Town for a few days, and I really,really want to sink my teeth into a good Chicago dog, but the problem is that I don't eat red meat. Does anyone out there do a comparably decent poultry-based dog? Veggie dogs just don't seem to cut it. I've checked out the menu at Hot Doug's and it all looks good, but it's not the classic frank that I am looking for. Any suggestions? Incidentally, I am staying at the Hyatt Regency on E Wacker, but I fully intent to roam a bit, especially to places easily accesible by public transit.
Sorry, but it's like asking for a gluten-free veganChicago-style pizza. It's just a sausage in a bun. Poultry dogs are an abomination. fredhots in Glenview (I don't expect you to even try going there) makes an excellent veggie sausage sandwich using Field Roast veggie products:
but it's definitely not a hot dog.
The city has a lot to offer, but we wouldn't want to leave you with a taste of non-beef dog in your mouth.
