EAT: CELEBRATING SUMMER HOT DOGS IN HARLEM
The chilly cheese dog is a classic and the Harlem Shake version had a more gooey, processed type of cheese melted on top which actually hit the spot. Next up was the Jerk Dog which promised a bit of spice and Jamaican flavor. We found that most of the seasoning was in the mayo which made for somewhat of a mixed result but purple slaw and pork rinds sprinkled on top made things a little more exciting. Our final dog of the day was called the Sonoran dog which was wrapped in crispy bacon and topped of with pickled cherry peppers, relish, chipotle mayo, onions accented with some of that aforementioned cheese. This has always been our favorite on the menu and is still a standout today.
For those further uptown, the dog trend has also arrived in Hamilton Heights on the Broadway corridor. At the Wallace has a full menu of grilled cheese and hot dog options for those who want more unexpected variations of the trend which includes a breakfast option complete with a fried egg: LINK
