New York: Crif Dogs

embrace the weiner
:East Village:

I'm a lover of hot dogs, especially Toronto street meat. Nothing compares.

Course I'm also a fan of fun weiners, and by fun I mean toppings that make you go uhhhmaagawd. 

Crif Dogs is that kind of place. A sub-ground level dive with a private speakeasy (PDT) for those in the know and anyone who can read the internet (no longer for the elite, and more a way for anyone to impress him, her or them). 

So my advice, skip PDT and just go eat a hot dog, they have a long list of endless dog combinations:

Every dog can be customized your way so you're bound to find something just for you. It's cheap, it's cheerful and they have a kick-ass playlist. Crif is by far my second favourite dog.

I had the chihuahua - bacon wrapped dog with avocado and sour cream plus a side of cheese fries.  

Dirrrtyyyy good.
Every bite was a mix of crisp bacon and plump juicy weiner with creamy avocado and tart sour cream.
Minnie had the sour cheese dog - sour pickles and cheese:

I recommend the wrapped weiners. Safety first, haha. No seriously, it's a safer bet - they're damn good and the dogs stay juicier inside layers of bacon or ham.

And don't forget the sides - you have to try at least one. Tater tots, or in my case, I had the waffle fries with cheese - crisp potatoes with melted cheese. Don't count calories, count smiles.
