Tasty 8’s

Veni, Vidi, Vici. Or for those of you whose boyfriend isn’t a Classics scholar, I came. I saw. I conquered.

Yesterday, my co-workers and I took a trip down our flight of stairs and out the door to our new neighbor, Tasty 8’s! I had been following them as they were under construction, creating menus and opening–so was excited to finally give them a try. It helps when you go with a group because that means you get to try all the dipping sauces for the Belgian fries. Personally, I ordered the dijon aioli.

Out of the eight hot dog choices, I chose the Windy City Weenie. I highly recommend. I like how Tasty 8’s cuts the CAB dog in half, to leave optimal room for the toppings to reach every part of the bun.

Choosing between milkshakes was hard, but I ended up ordering the Salty Dog–that is, salted caramel mocha milkshake. Delish!

Jack’s Cosmic Dogs

These hot dogs put the NYC food carts to shame. You can have your hot dog prepared any way imaginable: cheese, sauerkraut, chili, onion relish, spicy mustard, and the list goes on…

Toasted buns add a crunch, and the french fries compliment the taste of the dogs.
