Using a pillowy bun as a barrier, hot dogs are safely protected from environmental hazards such as open manholes and greasy-handed schoolchildren. Enjoy snugly shielded franks with today's Groupon: for $4, you get $8 worth of hot dogs and drinks from Dog Eat Dog Food Truck.
Inspired by international cuisine and food writers such as Anthony Bourdain, head chef Jose Unamuno elevates the humble hot dog with Dog Eat Dog Food Truck's innovative recipes. Facebook, Twitter, and sausage swamis reveal the bright-yellow 16-foot truck's daily location, where foil wrappers envelop a rotating menu of savory 100% beef hot-dog creations, such as the crunchy-coated tempura corn dog ($4.50). The Venezuelan-inspired Asquerosito Dog arrives loaded with shoestring fries, corn, and homemade garlic mayo ($6). Meanwhile, the Asian Dog replaces sausage with roasted pork belly crowned with homemade pickles and siracha sauce ($7), and the Argentinian-style Choripan nestles locally made pork sausage into a french-bread-like bun, blanketed with homemade chimichurri sauce ($6.50). Inspired by the city and named for the Miami area code, the 305 Dog incorporates bacon as a nod to Cuba, pineapple-poblano salsa to salute the beach, and a classic hot dog wrapped in "Born in the USA" liner notes to signify pure Americana ($6).
