4. BubbleDog

With a tagline of Champagne and Hot Dogs, what is not to love about Bubbledog. The dry sensation from the champagne mixes so perfectly with their juicy variety of hot dogs that you’ll dream of it for weeks! Take a trip to India with their Trishna hot dog, which packs in Trishna mango chutney, spicy mint, coriander sauce and
sev into the bread/meat combo. Mindblowing.

Engine Hot Dogs is the name of a hip street food van that serves American style hotdogs and chorizo from a vintage fire truck. Founded in 2010, they’ve been tearing up the streets for a while now, slinging the hottest sausage in town. Check out their menu online, which includes The Chorizo, a hot grilled chorizo sausage, topped with roasted red peppers, rocket and chilli jam, or even The Green Machine (v), a beechwood smoked veggie dog, topped with homemade triple cheese sauce and caramelised red onion chutney. Om nom nom for both carnivores and herbivores!

Bowling with hot dogs: it’s the American dream, but on Brick Lane! Apart from thrashing your best friends with your top notch bowling prowess, you should also thrash All Stars’ Top Dog, made from a Dingley Dell pork frankfurter, brioche sub, beer fried onions, tomato ketchup and deli mustard. Add slow-cooked beef chilli for 3 quid more and you’re in heaven.

[Guerilla Gourmande]
This goes without saying. If you go to IKEA for a lamp, a cheap rug and about 300 candles (the most essential component), you have to have a hot dog at the end. It’s not that it’s the most delicious of dogs, nor is it the most aesthetically pleasing. It’s simply an obligation. And with unlimited mustard and ketchup, who’s complaining?

9. Big Apple Hot Dogs
