Haute Dog Carte

These guys claim to have “quite possibly the best hot dog you’ll ever have”.  Have you had a chance to stop here?  The Haute Dog Carte does have some limited hours – only 11am-230pm and only on Wednesdays-Sundays.  So, maybe you haven’t randomly been on Falls road during the exact time they are open.  I usually am not.

One day, though, I was lucky enough to be in the area, and they were open.  They do have a good thing going.  The guys here are super friendly, and manage to create something out of a small little roadside stand.  My favorite is the buns, huge chunks of baguettes that the poke a hole in with a bread warmer.

We couldn’t decide so we split two. The HD Signature is your classic 1/4 pound black angus beef dog.  It’s finished with bacon & onion marmalade, tomato & onion jam and an authentic dijon mustard.  The hot dog was good, but all I tasted was sweet, that tomato kinda sweet.  I didn’t get much bacon flavor or much mustard.  I might just ask for a plain dog next time and top it with my favorite topping – spicy brown mustard.

The other dog we tried was the Smoked Country Sausage.  It is a beef and pork dog that is lightly smoked and then tossed on the grill.  They serve this one with a honey and pommery (a french champagne) dijon mustard.  I liked this one better; more depth of flavor.  It also hit a few more spice notes on the tongue.

Overall – super great spot for lunch – that is if you manage to get there when they are open.
