Should this be in delicious or disgusting? Probably, but there’s really no debate about the deliciousness of Sonoran hotdogs (bacon-wrapped grilled hotdogs, a roasted pepper on the side and your choice of condiments – salsa verde – pico de gallo – grilled onions – fresh sweet onions – fresh tomatoes – fresh cabbage -whole pinto beans – mustard – and yes the dreaded mayonnaise) . Yeah, I’ve read the hype about your New York Dogs, Boston Dogs, Chicago Dogs, Southern Dogs, German Dogs and Alsatian Dogs but truth be told they are all just inconsequential dust agleam in the starry sheen of Sonoran Hot Dogs. Ten years later I still remember the last one I ate just like I remember my first love. And even as a committed vegetarian, I relish the opportunity to watch someone eat one, vicariously savoring every last morsel, staring intently at the eater and the eaten, licking my lips, panting, wagging my tail, and howling occasionally.
The cool kids know that BK Carne Asada and Hot Dogs, make the best in town. But El Guero Canelo makes a mean hot dog too. Which brings us to the two points of this post: 1) to incite impassioned debate in defense of the various regional wieners (I expect Chuckles to bring it hard); and 2) to point out that the food photography on El Guero Canelo’s website (here, here and here ) is second only to that of the proprietor of this blog.
