Resto Poutine – Poutine Stories

In Montreal, we found ourselves at Resto Poutine on Crescent Street in Mrs. Hotdogman’s continuing quest to find the PERFECT Poutine. We polled a dozen family members as to who has the best Poutine in Montreal and we decided on this place. It’s inside a depanneur (Canadian for convenience store) and it couldn’t be more […]

Captain George’s Fish n Chips – Poutine Stories

When you see “Captain George’s Fish n Chips” in a Hot Dog Stories title, you must be thinking something is amiss, but Mrs. Hotdogman likes to get “equal time” when we’re traveling, so today’s entry is a “Poutine Story.” You see, Poutine is Mrs. Hotdogman’s FAVORITE food and it’s a ubiquitous dish in most Canadian […]

Montreal Poutine

I know this site is called Hot Dog Stories, but Montreal Poutine was my latest stop. They DO have hot dogs there, but we stopped in for Mrs. Hotdogman’s favorite dish: POUTINE! For those who don’t know, Poutine is a dish originating and served in Provence Quebec that consists of french fries, cheddar cheese curds, […]

Fenway Sausage Works – National Hot Dog Month Day 22

We visited Fenway Sausage Works last year, but owner Cory Hanks had a NEW hot dog on his menu I just had to try out: The Merlino Dog! Cory is a good guy who had a rough time getting started in the hot dog business. The New Bedford city government didn’t have any sort of […]

Texas Tommies

Last Saturday night, we had a hot dog we’d only dreamed of. It was inspired by a hot dog we saw on A Hot Dog Program, the cool hot dog documentary. We made Texas Tommies! A Texas Tommy is a hot dog, stuffed with cheese, wrapped in bacon, and DEEP FRIED! How ridiculous is that? […]

Hoss and Mary’s in Old Orchard Beach, Maine

Our final stop on our little whirlwind hot dog tour of Maine brought us to Hoss and Mary’s in Old Orchard Beach, Maine.

Wasses in Belfast, Maine

As we rolled back south from Down East Maine, we stopped at an iconic Maine joint in Belfast: Wasses. This is not the original Wasses, which has been in Rockland for over 40 years, this is the “other” Wasses, which has been around for a little over 20 years. This Wasses is located right on […]

Delicious Dogs in Winter Harbor, Maine

The second stop on our Hot Doggin’ in Maine Tour brought us to the naturally breathtaking Down East Maine Coast. We were out near Acadia National Park in the Schoodic Peninsula┬ácommunity of Winter Harbor, Maine. Winter Harbor got its name because the harbor doesn’t freeze in the winter time. The rocky Maine coastline makes for […]

WIENERS in Portland, Maine

Summertime is a time to get on outside and have some fun! Portland, Maine offers that unique experience of a rustic, outdoorsy atmosphere combined with the amenities of a city. This charming port city was the first stop for Mrs. HDM and I on our “Hot Doggin’ in Maine” mini tour. We strolled around for […]

Olneyville New York System, Providence, RI

Day 18 of the National Hot Dog Month 2012 Tour took us to the only stop in Rhode Island, to a little place that’s been knocking out Hot Wieners since 1946: Olneyville New York System. This iconic Providence landmark has been run by the Stevens family since 1946.┬áNicholas Stevens and his father Anthony started the […]
