You know what’s the best? Discovering (by accident) a good place to eat. Today my friend and I had decided on getting food from Leo’s Taverna in downtown, but had to change plans (twice) when we couldn’t find parking and traffic was too bad.
“How about a hot dog?” he asked me. “What about Hank’s?”
I can’t say no to a hot dog, so I googled the address on my phone and we headed to Coral street. I had heard of Hank’s Haute Dogs before, but never tried it. We parked at the end of the block, drooled over the menu, realized it was a Cash Only place, went to the convenient store down the street to pull out money, and then return to order our food. It sounds like a pain in the ass, but it was totally worth it.
My friend tried their Special of the Day (Alligator Andouille) and I had a good ol’ fashioned Polish dog. They weren’t as big as the Coscto hot dogs, but they were really delicious. Talk about gourmet hot dogs–they weren’t kidding!
We wolfed those suckers down, talked about how good it was, and then returned back to work fat and happy.
We’ll be going again soon, I promise. You should too.
