I've passed by the Snag Stand dozens of times since it first opened, but never thought to try it, thinking it was just another franchise hotdog shop. I happened to browse through Snag Stand's online menu the night before and saw the interesting options of 'haute dogs' they had on offer. So, I thought why not, I love fast food, gourmet dogs sound intriguing, why not give it a go.
|Chips $3.90, American Classic $6.90|
I had the American Classic - wood smoked frankfurter with American yellow mustard, tomato sauce, onions and sweet relish on a toasted brioche roll.
To me, the star of the show in a hotdog should be the sausage itself. The frankfurter in the American Classic was nice on its own, but I felt that all together, it was somewhat overwhelmed by the party of sweet and sour flavours from the toppings. The brioche bun was a nice touch, fluffy and soft - it looked toasted but was only mildly warm when I got home.
Nevertheless, I finished every bite - I'd go back for the awesome chips, and I might try the German Bratwurst next time.
Second visit to Snag Stand
