Crif's Dogs, NYC

On a recent trip to NYC, my man and I stopped at Crif's Dogs. We were actually trying to go somewhere else (extra cool points for you if you can guess where), but that didn't work out, because it turns out that most things in NYC involve a 2 hour wait and we're not really into that sort of thing. But I decided to make the most of it, and examined their menu. Obviously I was going to have to try a bacon-wrapped hot dog. I settled on the tsunami, bacon wrapped dog, pineapple, teriyaki, and green onion.

The pineapple was almost certainly from a can, and not a very tasty one at that - it was slightly cold and somewhat flavorless. The teriyaki, when I could taste it, was fantastic and a great compliment to the other flavors involved, but most of the time, I couldn't taste it. The green onions were nice! And the bacon wrapped dog was AWESOME.

In conclusion: hot dogs are better when they're wrapped in bacon.

I am a relatively new follower to your blog and I just wanted to stop by and say hail bacon, king of foods!

Thanks for making it Bacon!


PS: I had bacon wrapped dogs on Hollywood Blvd. a few years ago and they were divine.
