In honor of the hot dog's holiest day, July 4, we gave you a regional rundown of hot dog styles. But, gasp, we missed one: The Colombian Hot Dog, "an odd, semitropical wiener sandwich whose toppings include ham and pineapple," according to L.A. Weekly writer Jonathan Gold.
Found regularly in Miami, the sweet-sour dog also lives in Queens at "sandwich stands" under the elevated 7-line tracks, according to Gold. To clarify, Serious Eats overlord Ed Levine wrote about these three years ago, and they're from Los Chuzos y Algo Mas (Roosevelt Avenue in Jackson Heights). But Gold is more focused on the Los Angeles version found at a Colombian-owned yogurt shop called Tutti Frutti: "a Hebrew National hot dog tucked with ham and mozzarella cheese into a bun with raw onion, spackled with crushed pineapple, sprinkled with crushed potato chips and finished with a three-squeeze-bottle lattice of catsup, mustard and mayonnaise."
