Wienerschnitzel Pastrami Dog

pastramidog.jpgI love pastrami. Itís my favorite cured meat, by far. When I get a sub sandwich (a.k.a. a bomber, grinder, hero, hoagie, or poor boy) it is always pastrami. I like pastrami as a topping on a hamburger. I thought that it would make a good topping on a hot dog too. As it turns out, it doesnít work quite as well as I hoped. The Pastrami Dog from Wienerschnitzel is made with an all-beef hot dog on a pretzel bun, topped with pastrami, Swiss cheese, mustard, and a pickle spear. Individually, the components are all good. When combined, each gets lost in the flavors of the others. Iíve got to give Wienerschnitzel credit for coming out with a unique product for a fast food joint, but the Pastrami Dog falls short.

Phoood rating: So-so

yeah this looks mediocre. i'm a salami fan myself. although my guess is that the salami dog would fare about as well as the pastrami dog.....

Pastrami is my favorite too and I like these. I'd say it's worth a try if you like pastrami.

I've had a couple of them while in Vegas and really liked them. I'm in Seattle and we don't have food like this out here.
