The Munchies People's Choice Food Awards

Today, Tablespoon blogger KimChiKari salutes one of America's fave foods with her commentary on Hot Dog Nation.





Summer is just around the corner and you know what that means? Hot dogs!


Boiled, grilled, sliced, mustard, relish, bun, no bun...the hot dog is the ultimate blank canvas and, depending on where you call home, it can feature a myriad of toppings.


Of course, there's the classic Chicago dog, but maybe you're not so familiar with some of the other regional styles. Take a tour of some of the hot dog hot spots and see what other great cities put on their dogs!

Los Angeles Koreatown Dogs


Koreatown Hot Dogs Recipe


Los Angeles is home to Koreatown, an area thriving with the fantastic culinary influences of Korea and, of course, what K-town dog would be complete without kimchi? Crunchy, spicy, and stinky, it’s like coleslaw, but better. Slather on some Korean hot pepper paste and you’ve got a dog with a kick!



Tucson Dogs


Tucson Hot Dogs Recipe


Tucson Arizona’s Mexican influence can be found all around this beautiful American Southwest city, so it’s no surprise there’s a touch of Mexico on their hot dogs. Classically known as the Sonoran hot dog, you can try your hand at your own version with this easy recipe. Using a Pillsbury refrigerated French loaf, the hot dog incorporates bacon, chili beans, tomatoes, and yummy Cojita Mexican cheese.



Seattle Dogs

Seattle, the beautiful city in the Pacific Northwest that, while mostly known for their love of coffee and the ‘90s Grunge music scene, is also home to the Seattle Dog. What makes a Seattle Dog so special? Cream cheese! Add some fried onions and you’ve got a unique and delicious meal.



Kansas City Dogs

Milwaukee Dogs

Maui Dogs

If you’re lucky enough to visit beautiful, tropical Maui, then you’ve probably had a Maui-style hot dog. Not sure what makes this hot dog so unique? While the sweet pineapple salsa certainly adds a special twist, it’s the unusual way the hot dog is placed inside the bun!



Atlanta Dogs
