Anyone who’s from LA has experienced the enticing smell of street hot dogs cooking outside of the Staples Center, night clubs, parties, and basically any building that hosts events, at some point in their life. While we all have probably indulged in a street dog or two…the owner of Dirt Dog LA was so inspired by the creation that he started making these street dogs at home, and developed his own versions of hot dog recipes.
We had the pleasure of taste testing some of his originations at the Dirt Dog LA ‘Secret Tasting’ Event held this past Wednesday, the 27th of July. And as someone who’s generally not a fan of hot dogs, and usually would pick a cheeseburger over the American classic any day; I’ve officially been converted into a hot dog lover. The combinations of flavors, onions, bell peppers, chili powder, and numerous other condiments and toppings Dirt Dog LA offered, simply blew my mind. I enjoyed one of the best grilled corn on the cobs i’ve ever had, as well as chili dogs, “filthy fries” (which was one of my faves) and a patty melt themed hot dog topped with french fries!
Scroll down to view the menu items I remembered to photograph. They serve a horchata flavored ice cream topped with a soft, made from scratch churro as well; but I got way too excited about the awesome dessert and ate it in 30 seconds. My apologies! 🙂
The Patty Melt (pictured above) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️- this was my favorite hot dog of the night! Prepared with onions, french fries, and bacon wrapped sausage, what more can you ask for?
The Chili Dog ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – this was REALLY good. All the toppings and flavors blended well together…
The “Filthy Fries” from the secret menu ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. This is a must try! Ask your server for this menu item next time you’re at Dirt Dog LA, and you’ll be able to enjoy this delicious twist on cheese fries.
The Green Dog ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – Made with spices, green bell peppers, onions, and a whole bunch of other flavors that weren’t disclosed. If you can handle spicy foods, this menu item is for you!
