When you think Chinatown, you probably don’t think hot dogs, but HLing suggests you think again: There’s a surprisingly good one for $1 at Canal and Bowery, where the Fung Wah buses load up for Boston. Jumbo Hot Dogs, little more than a window tucked into the corner of a pawn shop, uses quarter-pound all-beef franks from Newark’s Best Provision Co., plump with nice snap. Onions, relish, or sauerkraut are a dime extra (as is a takeout box for safe, clean traveling).
