The New Fenway Frank-Anyone Tried It?
I'm going to the game today and wanted to know if anyone has tried the new Fenway Frank?
I went to opening day, and yes I tried the new and improved Fenway Frank. And yes, it really is a little bit better than I remember! I don't know if it's because of the new supplier, or because it was opening day (a minimal chance of them being leftovers!) but they did taste better than greywater franks.
It seems that Speed's has raised the bar in Hot dog taste in the Boston area!
Fenway Franks--one of my great memories from a baseball stadium tour last year!
Tell me they didn't change the bun.
I bought some and made them at home ballpark-sytyle -- steamed dogs and buns. I thought the flavor profile was closer to a kosher dog than a Kayem Old Tyme, very beefy, a touch of garlic, and some mustard seed aftertaste. They really were bold compared to the dogs I recall from recent trips to Fenway, which I always thought were rather bland. The best part was the size of the dogs - a nice 2 ounces per link.
Well I did get my Fenway Frank yesterday. It was an improvement and not bad if you are part of a captive audience. But it took me a whole inning to get mine. I'll stick with my usual from the Sausage Guy in the future.
The new franks didn't taste much different to me.
I absolutely couldn't eat one without mustard though.
New crew on the kettle corn was clueless on Opening Day - totally burnt...
