Homecoming at Willie’s Dawgs
I haven’t had a hot dog in 3 or 4 months. I decided to try to eat as well as I possibly could in order to reduce my cholesterol. So after much effort, I went from a 212 to a 206! Part of me is happy that it went down but I wish it was more than 6 points. After months of effort, which I should say I did actually enjoy, it was time to dip my toes back in the pool that is hot doggery. I’ve been wanting to go to a nearby Peruvian place to try Solchipapas, a dish that is primarily sliced hot dogs over french fries, and then topped off with whatever else they want. But I figured that the first dogs that I would eat would have to come from my favorite place, Willie’s Dawgs!
Last week, the big snowstorm that hit south of here finally struck NYC. I took a day off of work and walked down to Willie’s. Here’s what my street looked like from my front door:
Mike and I posted pictures before of the two dogs I got, but I think they are so damn good. I got a very unique dog called the Pickles Jalan which consists of an all beef dog with peanut sauce, Indonesian pickles, and jalapenos on a challah roll.
The second dog is the Grady, possibly my absolutely favorite dog anywhere. The consists of an all beef dog with grilled peppers, caramelized onions, jalapenos, ketchup, mustard, and mayo on a challah roll. I love this dog so much.
I missed you hot dogs. Even though I’ll be going back to a mostly healthy diet, I will go back to chowing down on some new dogs. I’m back baby!
