Here's Dirt Dog, a concept that revolves around one of L.A.'s greatest traditions: the street-grilled bacon-wrapped hot dog. With numerous vendors spread across the city after sports events or along Hollywood Blvd, the dirty dog is LA's contribution to the American hot dog canon.
Opened August 1 near USC on Figueroa, Dirt Dog features a slew of creative hot dogs using premium all-beef Nathan's dogs, as well as some unique sides like Mexican-style street corn, cut fried, and beef-fat fries. Essentially, it's a drunken college student's late night dream.
Since the dirty, disgusting theme must continue to desserts, find a deep-fried Twinkie and deep-fried Oreos for sweets. The endeavor is founded by Richard Elliott, Timothy Cam, Phillip Ozaki, who handles the kitchen, and Hai Quach as investor. Currently soft open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., with hours to expand later into the evening. [EaterWire]
