Help a Northerner...What Does a New Orleans Cart Vendor Put on Hot Dogs?

lydia | Oct 20, 199908:38 AM

A friend of ours just came back from New Orleans brimming with news of his culinary adventures. So much so, that we are planning a chowhound trip come early next year. He told me one of the best chowhound experiences was at a hot dog cart in the French Quarter, about 1:00 a.m....He asked the vendor to "load it", which is to put whatever would classically go on it for that area. When I asked him what was on it, he said he thought it was peanut butter, mustard, ketchup, chili and diced raw onions. That sounded spectacular to me and my husband, but I wanted to make sure that's what you put on it. Please guide us on this, and we look forward to taking all this wonderful information we get on this site on our visit to your town next year. Thanks.
