How to Order the Perfect HopDog
There’s many parts of America that lay claim to the hot dog – but in Central Connecticut, you arguably have some of the best. In fact the State of Connecticut’s tourism board has built a hot dog tour! With two of HopDog’s founders hailing from the state, it’s only right that we pay a little homage to the dogs they grew up with!
PICK YOUR BASE DOG
served on a vegan bun
|The Classic American Hot Dog, ours is made with a combination of Bio Pork and Beef, traditionally flavored with garlic and paprika. - 6,90€|
|Based on Louisiana’s traditional Andouille sausage, this hot dog is double smoked and full of green herbs, onion, garlic and spices. - 6,90€
**NOTE: THIS SAUSAGE HAS MUSTARD IN IT**
|Our take on the classic “hot link” combines the savory lamb Merguez sausages of Morocco and the spicy beef Chorizo of Mexico. Think spices like cumin, coriander and garlic as well as flavorful chiles and a hint of red wine vinegar. Nice and spicy... but not too spicy! - 6,90€**NOTE: THERE'S NO PORK IN THIS HOT DOG AT ALL**|
|The Vegan Dog - For those of you who decline the swine (or beef or lamb), we found a vegan alternative that tastes great. It's a little bigger than our traditional hot dogs and the cost is higher, so it's a bit more expensive. If you're looking for a wonderful meatless option, it's worth the extra Euro. Hail Seitan. - 7,50€
ADD YOUR PREMIUM TOPPINGS – 0,80€ EACH
In Peru, they put Aji Verde sauce on almost anything. This spicy green mayonnaise based sauce is served with roasted chickens, served with potatoes, and eaten with almost everything. Ours uses three types of chiles (Aji Amarillo, Jalapeño and Habanero), cilantro, green onion and lime to make the perfect spicy sauce for our hot dogs.
Yes, chili may be classic in other parts of America as a hot dog topping, but true hot dog lovers know that nothing beats the meat sauce from Capitol Lunch in New Britain, CT. Rich, flavourful and the perfect complement to a hot dog, our mild all-beef sauce pays homage to Cappy’s legendary sauce (and we can’t wait for them to make a trip out here to see if ours is worthy of the name).
Aside from hot sauce or sliced pickled Jalapeños, this is probably the spiciest thing on our menu. Riffing off of the amazing pepper relish of Blackie’s in Cheshire, CT, we combine bell peppers, hot peppers, apple cider vinegar and a few secret spices and let it simmer down until we get a beautiful spicy pickled pepper relish!
