Bacon Wrapped Mondays

posted by on 2008.02.18, under Uncategorized

In Downtown LA, at the intersection of gentrification, immigration, law and tastiness, lies the street vendor grilled bacon wrapped hot dog. Nicknamed the “heart attack dog” they are illegal to make and to sell in LA because in order to do so you must grill them, and street vendors are not allowed to grill meat – only to boil or steam it due to health code regulations.
This weekend, we decided (well, my niece told me we should anyway) to head on down to Griffith Park and grill some up ourselves just to see what all the fuss was about.
Oh man. If you haven’t had one, you need to try ’em. I totally recommend grilling them over hot coals in a park like we did.

Read all about it in the LA Weekly Article.
