  1. New Gourmet Hot Dog Joint - Opening first week of October.

      1. re: tawnyport

        Nice! I'm going to have to give this place a try!

          Given Toronto's love of hotdogs, I wonder why Dinah's Fuchsia Dog never took off. It's still open as far as I know, but I don't think it's particularly busy, which is a shame, because her hotdogs were awesome!

          1. re: kwass

            I think it's still there. Never been. I think she had too many Asian influenced hot dogs and her branding/atmosphere didn't pull people in.

        2. Front page article in the living section of the star today. Talks about fusia dog too. Sorry about the lack of link I'm on the bus with a new phone!

                Yeah I meant to post back that I walked by Fusia dogs on Sunday and it is still in business (but closed on Sundays). They also close pretty early... I think like 8pm or so ... Seems like they would get a lot more business if they stayed open a bit later on Friday and Saturday nights but maybe they don't want the clubbing/drunk crowds.

                  I know it's still open, I just wish it would get it's proper due. Her hotdogs and the toppings she puts on them are really yummy. My only criticism is that for the price, the hotdogs should be bigger. I remember still feeling hungry after I last ate there.

            1. Looks real interesting.
              Will definitely try
