You think I’m kidding? Too far fetched?
I’m not, it isn’t and it’s not all that new either.
The first time we spied Buddah Dog a bit back, in the little town of Picton, On. Although Picton is small, it’s up and coming with well classed wineries, inns fabulous farms and food.
Of course Buddhists are vegetarian, but we’re guessing the name comes from being as close to zen as a hot dog can get – and I suppose, for some, it was about time hot dogs made their journey.
All of the food is locally grown and produced by local artisans and organic as possible. Resisting the temptation to go on and on, sounding like an ad but the secret is in the sauce.
All the good stuff certainly starts it, but it’s the seasonal flavourings that make it. Sure they have ketchup, but they make it and about 3 varieties on any given day. (Our day? Tomato Basil Balsamic, Smokey and Cherry Ketchup.)
Very nice, seeing I’d ventured over to their Toronto location, kids in tote for a “real” hot dog day.
My last dog? A creamy artisan maple chevre with a balsamic peach reduction. $2.
