Don't settle for anything else
I never thought this was going to be something I fancied once in a while but it was, all thanks to an unexpected and long overseas trip that I experienced. I was never into this nor did I think I would wrap my taste buds around it but I guess you really do change with time as you grow, which is such a great part of personal development. Now now.. I don't know where your mind is drifting off to but I was talking about hot dogs not guys haha, sorry to disappoint any readers.
We were having a stroll down The Corso at Manly, something I can't get enough of doing as it eases my mind from the hectic everyday life, and we came across The Hot Dog Man. Walking past it, we stopped and contemplated whether to give it a go or not. We decided to think about it just in case we found something else to eat. So we continued to stroll down The Corso and within the area. Well I am not leaving much for you to guess, but yes, we ended up stopping by and trying it out on the way back as we realised we rarely come across hot dog takeaway shops. So in we went.
As we stood inside, we were greeted by a staff member who seemed to be working alone at the time. He was a friendly guy who did not come across as pushy, only friendly and ready to assist us when we were ready. It is a nice change for once.
The interior of the shop could be described as 90's era and was decorated with black & white square tiled floors and the decorated interior which gave it a cute feel. I looked up at the menu and could not tell you everything they offered as I never knew you could be so inventive with hot dogs and what they can be mixed with.
The menu covered a range of meals of gourmet sausage rolls such as the "Frank SINATRA" priced at $11 or the "Spanish Chorizo" at $15, as well as a few non-sausage meals such as burgers and chicken. It is not a bad selection given that it is providing gourmet street food. They are very reasonably priced for the servings and if you are someone like myself, who wants to give a proper go, add a "COMBO THAT" to your meal. This is a selection of sides that consists of crumbed potato bites and a drink. The potato bites (thick chips if you like) come in the original plain flavour with a choice of different toppings, as well as a drink. This combo is additional to your hot dog and prices vary depending on which combo you select, ranging from $5 to $8. You will walk out with a button loosened up, so yep, it is filling.
