The hot dog from heaven
Sorry if the title of this post is misleading, the hot dog didn't TASTE like it was from heaven, it just LOOKED like it came from heaven. It was tasty though, a Chicago-style dog (little peppers are part of the style, but it was missing the poppy seed bun, which I wouldn't have eaten anyway) from a little place in Hollywood called Molly's Hamburgers in Hollywood. All the goodies on top made it a mess to eat (I used a fork and knife), but tasty.
This has become our go-to place after seeing a movie around the corner at the Arclight Theatre. The Arclight is a great place for a movie, but the concession stand charges you almost as much as the ticket!
The only food allergy tip I can add here is that those with dairy or soy allergies should be careful with any type of prepared meat (hot dogs, salami, cold cuts, etc.), a lot of these use one or both as filler. Kosher dogs don't have dairy, but some have soy. When I buy hot dogs for cooking at home, I buy the Boar's Head brand, which is more expensive, but doesn't have any fillers, just beef.
Okay, I'll confess. I just liked the hot dog picture and liked the place (I'm a sucker for diner-type places) and thought I'd share it. That's all.
