Many tasty foods are named after the place where they're cultivated, including Florida oranges, garden vegetables, and ground beef. Enjoy freshly grown burgers with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get two burgers at Dog Haus in Pasadena (up to a $16 value).
A neighborhood purveyor of gourmet fast food, Dog Haus specializes in speedily prepared and creatively topped hot dogs, sausages, and hamburgers nestled in King’s Hawaiian bread. Forklift a top-heavy freiburger ($6.25), outfitted with a third-pound Angus patty mounded with cheese, fries, coleslaw, and a fried egg, into mouth loading docks. The Hail Maria ($5.75) inspires victory dances when its team of sautéed mushrooms, caramelized onions, and cheddar cheese touches down in waiting taste zones, and the United States meets Italy between the buns of the Holy Aioli burger ($5.50), served with american cheese, smoked bacon, and garlic aioli and stamped by a surly customs agent.
Chefs at Dog Haus's dual locations fuse German culinary tradition with Southern Californian flavors and ingredients. Six types of sausage, such as skinless beef dogs and gourmet bratwursts, as well as burgers lay sandwiched between pieces of King's hawaiian bread, which wraps contents in the sweet warmth of a quilted scuba suit. Beneath clouds of aromatic steam, bundles sport predetermined fixings or don some of 32 inventive toppings, which include egg, chili, and avocado. In a beer garden at the eatery's original location, German and Californian craft brews flow from taps in sudsy cascades while live musicians serenade sun-steeped diners. Guests avoid overly friendly fire hydrants with free parking, and Dog Haus' staff travels to sate distant appetites with delivery and catering services.
