The only time I eat hot dogs are at BBQ's and to my knowledge, the only place in Glasgow which sells hot dogs is Costco, an American megastore - and even when I went there for food, I never ordered a hot dog, because they served amazing baked potatoes.
Anyway, the friends I met in Sydney were huge foodies too, but only Mr Pistol was a Sydney-sider. This meant that I trusted him most about which places to visit and more importantly, which places to dine at.
High on his recommended list was hot dogs at Harry's Cafe De Wheels.
They also sell pies.
Being a fan of pies, I had the house special Harry's "Tiger" - which incidentally is named after the founder Harry 'Tiger' Edwards - (I was thinking of Tiger Woods LOL) - chunky lean beef pie served with mushy peas, mash and gravy. And guess what? I don't have a photo of it. Sorry. But it was lovely and meaty with a thick gravy, which was slighty salty. The pastry case was a letdown though.
Anyway, here's a photo of me holding onto a classic hot dog. I say "holding onto" because I was just posing with the hot dog which went into Mr Pistol's belly.
I did try the classic hot dog on another occasion. Sadly, it did not live up to my expectations. I prefer hotdog sausages burnt at the BBQ and not boiled.
I also shared a chilli dog with my sister who paid me a visit in Oz. I detest cheese and the cheesy sauce in the chilli dog nearly killed me! LOL!
