Sun Nov 4 2012Among the endless rows of food stalls at the Original Farmers Market, with its old-school charm and classic LA nostalgia, stands Fritzi Dog—a hot dog kiosk from chef Neal Fraser. The contemporary American, fine dining chef (of the now-shuttered Grace, nearby BLD and Manhattan Beach’s the Strand House) rethinks the hot dog with antibiotic-free, choice-cut meats, daily-baked buns and chef-forward flavors. Build your own food adventure—choose from five dogs (classic Stadium, Kosher-style Deli, turkey-duck Bird, curry-flavored Porker and the bold-spiced Fritzi), four different top-split buns (brioche, pretzel, gluten-free and our fave, Parker, from Röckenwagner) and condiments from premium (we love the grape-blended violet mustard) to good ‘ol Heinz ketchup. Find a favorite with Tasting Dogs—a mix-and-match flight of four-inch dogs on any bun with a selection of toppings. Don’t forget a side of crispy tater tots (try them dunked with an addictive Spicy sauce, a duo of Buffalo and blue cheese) or crispy shoestring fries. Vegetarians can also join the hot dog revolution with the carrot dog that’s sous-vided and finished on the flattop. Flavorful and shaped like a frank, it’ll fool the carnivorous of eaters.
