Dante's Inferno Dogs

Menu at Seattle Center Mobile Feast (10/29/11)
Dante's Inferno Dogs, based in Seattle, Washington, has several food stands throughout the city. According to Seattle Food Trucks, Dante's (for now) is out on the streets Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Dante's offers several styles of hot dogs, including a couple of vegetarian options. Intrigued, I ordered the apple sage veggie sausage dog ($6). I asked the cart operator (I believe his name was Matthew) what to dress this dog with. He suggested grilled onions, grilled peppers, sweet chili sauce, and pickled jalapenos, so I went with that. Apparently all toppings are free, which is a huge plus (other stands could charge for extra toppings).

The sage really came through on this veggie dog -- which also broke apart very easily (and yes, I prefer this to a sausage that I have to wage war with to eat). I applaud the topping suggestions here. The crunch of the grilled onions and grilled peppers, the sweetness of the chili sauce, and the mild kick from the jalapeno all worked here. It was a light, healthier snack, so I had some room for this even after stuffing my face with food a few minutes prior. For me, I would like the bun toasted just a bit more so I can get the crunch from that when eating my hot dog. It's just something about a nicely toasted bun that takes the hot-dog-eating experience to the next level.

Anyway, check out Dante's Inferno Dogs and get a hot dog ASAP! 7.5/10
