Hot dogs: Toronto’s iconic street food

Hmmmm hot dogs! I thought I’d join the lunchtime crowd at Nathan Phillips Square (in front of  the City Hall) on a busy weekday. Well, busy for them, not for me, so this gave me the illusion I was in a hurry to go somewhere. I pretended I had an important meeting and  had just enough time to grab a quick bite: a grilled beef hot dog loaded with mustard, green relish, onions and pickles.

I heard that hot dogs were a Toronto institution. At Nathan Phillips Square there are quite a few carts selling beef or chicken hot dogs, Polish, Italian and German sausages, fries and poutine (fries with gravy and cheese curd.)

This is what Can$ 4.50 gets you for lunch:
