Craft Dogs - 95 King Street East

This was mentioned in the Openings thread, but since they opened today and I had lunch there, I figured I'd start something new.

Arrived around 11:45 am, and was their third customer.

I don't eat pork, so I asked which hot dogs didn't use a pork casing. My choices were the "Kobe Carny" hot dog or the "Asparagus Bun-dle". I went with the Kobe Carny, fries and a sparkling water.

The menu states that the Kobe Carny hot dog comes with Kobe beef chili , raw onions and yellow mustard. As I had a few meetings this afternoon, I asked for no raw onions.

In a word, the hot dog was delicious! The chili was amazing, and the hot dog was tasty with a nice crunch from the lamb casing.

The fries were a tiny bit undercooked, but I told them when they asked me how everything was, and they said that they would fry them a bit longer. As I said, I was their third customer, so I wasn't upset.

There were a number of people walking in when I was eating. I was gone by 12:10, so not sure how busy they got.

Bill came to just under $15 for the hot dog, fries and the water. Not cheap, but definitely worth it for the quality food.

They have a liquor licence and serve beer in bottles and on tap.

My biggest complaint is that they don't serve Diet Coke, but rather have artisanal soft drinks available. I didn't ask if any were sugar free.

It's a great addition to the neighbourhood. I've attached the hot dog menu attached as their website isn't up and running yet.
