Sadie, The Marinated Carrot Dog
July 21, 2008
So my friend Evan came down to visit from Waltham, MA this weekend, and I managed to talk him into going to Willie’s Dawgs in Park Slope, Brooklyn. I love this place, but I had no appetite by the time we got there. Evan, on the other hand, realized he had a 4 hour drive back to Boston and would probably need food. So what does a vegetarian get at a hot dog spot? A Sadie! The sandwiches are all named after dogs that are put up for adoption. So the Sadie is a grilled marinated carrot, with cheddar cheese and avocado on a multigrain roll. The guy who runs the spot said that this sandwich has a cult following. He said that they marinate the carrots in hot dog spices, which makes the carrot actually taste like a hot dog. Definitely give this a try when you’re in Brooklyn. Get the onion rings also.
