Yesterday, Universal Orlando offers invited reporters a chance to sample what CityWalk visitors will find at the new Hot Dog Hall of Fame when it opens later this summer, next to Emeril's and in front of Antojito's.
This walk-up, counter-service restaurant will offer a variety of hot dogs hailing from or inspired by cities across America. Diners can eat their dogs in stadium-style seats overlooking the restaurant.
Here are the selections Universal made available to sample Tuesday night:
Chicago — Vienna Beef hot dog on a poppy bun with neon relish, sport peppers, diced onions, tomatoes, celery salt and a pickle
Coney — Koegel dog with chili and chopped onions
Kansas City — Vienna Beef hot dog with pulled pork, coleslaw, pickles and barbeque sauce
Rocky — Nathan's hot dog with sauerkraut, grilled peppers and onions
Sonoran — Vienna Beef hot dog with smoked bacon, pinto beans, grilled onions and peppers, and cheese
Brian preferred the Coney for its classic chili dog formula (or also because it was closest to the classic Pink's chili dog from his native L.A.), while I (being a good Northwestern grad) opted for the Chicago. Maybe be we just gravitate toward the familiar with a comfort food such as hot dogs.
Hot Dog Hall of Fame promises a variety of mustards to go along with your choices when it opens later this summer. (Construction workers appeared relatively close to having the exterior, at least, done.) No word on prices yet.
