Dougiedog Hot Dog Joint1011 Granville Street, Vancouver
A successful modern rethinking of the traditional hot dog
Submitted Sunday, January 22, 2012 - 10:16pm [Dine in]

I'm a little surprised to see all this hot dog activity in Vancouver lately (Japadog, Dougiedog, etc). I've never thought of Vancouver as a hot dog city. Nonetheless, glad to see we are at the culinary cutting edge here.

Like Japadog, these are creative, gourmet-style hotdogs. But Dougiedog is more traditional -- more in line with North American hot dog tradition (though they do serve an amazing Korean-style Seoul Dog and other international dogs as well).

The kitchen is impeccably clean which I like to see. To be honest, I am afraid to eat from street-side hotdog carts.

But it's really the flavors that make this place a must-visit. They use all different kinds of custom locally made wieners, with different spices and peppers and the like infused in the meat, depending on which dog you order.

For example, I often eat one called a mariodog which has some kind of hot peppers and I believe cheese? also embedded in the meat. It's this approach to the layering of flavors, starting with the meat, that makes the overall product a winner.

Very friendly and enthusiastic service too. Recommended.

Chambar568 Beatty Street, Vancouver
Most recent experience not so great
Submitted Friday, January 13, 2012 - 6:18pm [Dine in]

Every now and then I get a craving for the mussels and fries at Chambar. However, on my most recent visit, the service was unusually slow and unattentive. Perhaps the reason is because we sat in the front bar area instead of the back where the main restaurant is?

The food was a let down this time as well. My bucket of mussels was loaded with unopened mussels. Must have been a bad batch. It made me afraid to eat the ones that did open.

I'm not a beer drinker but my friends are and they universally give high praise to the beer menu in this place.

I'll probably give it one more try in a few months since I've been really happy here in the past.
