Downtown YYC - Hot Dog stuffed into a half baguette place.

piano boy Sep 18, 2010 05:54 PM

I used to work downtown and loved that place. Anyone remember it on the corner of Stephen Ave and I think Centre St.?

They would stab half a baguette onto what looked almost like a ring of heated sharpening steels then drizzle the condiments down and finally slide a hot dog in. It was the cleanest hot dog, never stained a shirt.

Anyway, I know it hasn't been there in years but does anyone know if it moved or simply closed shop?

    In most places in Europe they call it a French hot dog, or French style.
    Also, isn't there a place in the Saddledome that serves them, under the moniker of Pocket Dogs?

      From my observation there seemed to be many more hotdog vendors on the corners of downtown calgary this summer. Does anyone know if there was a increase in licences granted or something?

          Do you know the name of the stand? (cause there are lots of hot dogs/sausage places there).

                  The Yodeling Sausage was on Stephen Ave this summer. Not sure if they are now closed for the season. Had the hole in the baguette. Great sausage.

                    OOOoooOOO Yes! I tried the Yodeling Sausage! I know they did the whole- hole in baguette! It was good. I remember seeing a few people eating it on Stephen Avenue, but I guess with winter coming soon they will all be retreating to warmer places.

          I've never seen this place in YYC, but would LOVE to try it! That is how they serve kasekrainers in Vienna (if you get it hot dog style), and while I don't really eat hot dogs often, I haven't seen anywhere in North America serving sausages that way! I would love to hear more!

            They do Currywurst there too- though I've never had it, and for me Currywurst ain't worth my time without fries on the side, which these folks don't do.
