Hebrew National or do you prefer the taste of The Coney Island dog?
Not a huge fan of Hebrew National. I much prefer, among the better known brands, Nathan's, Sabrett's, or even Ball Park or Oscar Mayer. Better still are small, local brands of well spiced dogs with natural casings.

I liked that a lot in Deutchland but have never seen it here. Where do you get, or how to you mix up curry ketchup?
I use about two tbsp. of ketchup, a heaping tsp. of Dijon, and about two tsp. of curry powder. I am not, however, precise and varying the amounts is no big deal.

Ooh, yes... we have a Christkindl Market every year in Atlanta, and a vendor flies in from Berlin and runs a curry stand there for the duration. Sadly, probably not this year!

They serve them with curry-dusted fried potatoes. My daughter (always my date for the day) doesn’t care for them, so I devour a double order by myself.

Another thing I enjoy at Jewish breakfast spots is beef franks cut up and scrambled with eggs. Nothing fancy; just hits the spot.

I tend to enjoy the local dogs made by small local butcher shops

A hot dog without mustard is like...well, you know. However, a brat demands curry ketchup ever since I discovered it!
My wife and I had Brats in Nuerenberg and she commented it tasted like a JohnsonVille. I’ll,our tour guide took exception to that. Anyway, In Germany ketchup ons brat is considered bad form.

Ah, thanks a bunch. A 'Market of Choice' is only a couple of miles away and they are supposed to carry Feltman's. I think I know what I'm doing Saturday.

I grew up thinking ketchup on a hotdog was bad form, but I have mellowed. Curry ketchup has been good on every sausage I have ever had it on. When you think about onion sauce like they serve with dirty water dogs is sort of a deconstructed ketchup! I have come to like hot dogs in virtually all forms, including Chicago dogs, but my favorite and the one I always have at least one of, has spicy mustard and onion.

I love those known brands, they have a meatier flavor.

Would you like chocolate sauce on your hot dog or do you find it a bit nauseating?
My stomach quite literally rolled as I read your post, Howard. However, if you would reserve the chocolate for desert and serve the hotdog as your entre'e, that could work, but you should put some chili on the hotdog. ;)

Chicago style are tops, however, it is more the allure of having them so infrequently, that makes them so tasty!

Coleslaw is an excellent condiment on all sorts of sandwiches!

I don't see that Howard's chocolate-dog is any worse than a maple-bacon donut and Portland is famous for those. No, I haven't tried any yet but once the smoke clears and I an go outside again . . .

Yup. But take into account, the founders have sold it off and its now a chain. On one had this makes getting them easier since they just opened a shop near the market I go to. On the other, it's now corporate and the quality of the product depends strongly on how well the local manager/franchisee runs things. We will see--once the smoke clears!
