We’ve entered the era of the dog. It’s official. I mean, don’t get me wrong, burgers aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. But the newest trend lately seems to be the gourmet hot dog restaurant. Today’s review comes from a recent trip I made down to San Diego. I was staying with my great friend, Lisa, who has the most comfy air mattress in the history of the universe. Seriously, that thing is goooood. Anyway, what was I talking about? Oh, right, hot dogs.
Daddy’s Hot Dogs – On University Ave, in Hillcrest
Back in the day (i.e. the 80s) the concept of gourmet food meant white tablecloths, celebrity sightings and people who I would normally refer to as “total douchers.” Luckily, the concept has evolved a fair amount over the years and legitimate gourmet food can be found in the most unlikely place, or places (if it’s a food truck). Daddy’s Hot Dog’s isn’t going to win any awards for decor, and it would not inaccurately be described as a ‘hole in the wall.’ Literally.
