Hot Dogs

Hot dogs are as iconic to New York as yellow taxis. Traditionally made of ground pork, beef, or both, these sausages are flavoured with garlic, mustard, and nutmeg, then encased, cured, smoked, and cooked. Visit Original Nathan’s Famous in Brooklyn, opened in 1915 by Charles Feltman, or grab one from street carts with mustard and sauerkraut.
