hdAre you a hot dog lover?  Do you enjoy those delicious franks cradled in a soft bun and topped with a variety of ingredients?  Perhaps, a little mustard and onions will do you.  Maybe, you’re a ketchup lover.  Then there are those times when nothing can make you happy except some chili, cheese and onions.

If you’re a Chicago hot dog lover, it’s all about the mustard, relish, dill pickle, a slice of tomato, onions and peppers.  In Los Angeles, people will actually hunt for bacon wrapped hot dogs with a squeeze of mayonaise sometimes sold by local street vendors.  But none of these hot dogs have anything on the Colombian Hot Dog.  So what is a Colombian hog dog you may ask?

Simply, it’s a Hebrew National hot dog tucked with ham and mozzarella cheese into a bun with raw onion, crushed pineapple, sprinkled with crushed potato chips and finished off with a three-squeeze-bottle pattern of catsup, mustard and mayonnaise. You’re either cringing or entranced right about now. Suffice to say that it’s almost impossible to eat this Latin American dog without smearing condiments all over your mouth, chin and possibly up all in your nose, too.

When you  first see it, you’ll be in awe because you’re not going to have any idea of where to start. You might even consider asking for a knife and fork, but come on.  Just gut it out! Half the enjoyment is the messiness.  One safe strategy that might work is to take a bite out of the top part of the hot dog, leaving a lower ledge of hot dog and bread. Then bite the lower part of the hot dog and just repeat. So what would a hot dog with all these interesting ingredients taste like? With each bite, you will taste sour, salty and sweet with both creamy, firm and crisp textures. If you’re able to find a restaurant that sells this hot dog, you’ll be in for quite an experience.
