Hot Dog Toppings: Crispy Onions

Good Day Chowhounds!

I'm looking for a hot dog vendor, preferably in the Toronto area, that offers crispy-fried onions as a topping.

When I was in Sweden a few years ago, and had a craving for street meat. I headed over to a 24hr convenience store and ordered up a hot dog. Instead of the slathering on my regular mustard and saurkraut, the cashier offered up a short list of unfamiliar toppings, one of which was "crispy onion". (On a side note, the "creamy shrimp-salad sauce" cost extra and I wasn't feeling that adventurous at the time.) I decided on the onions and I wasn't disappointed. In fact, it was surprisingly delicious!

The all-night convenience store was not the only place that had this type of onion topping in Stolkholm. The street vendors over there did too and it seemed a fairly common choice there.

Sadly, I have yet to see any hotdog/sausage vendor anywhere else that has crispy onions or crispy-fried onions as a choice of topping. Can anyone help?
