I had examined the menu online when Station Street first opened, and had been looking forward to trying the Sweet Bread Dog. Unfortunately, it has since been taken off the menu (for the time being anyway), so I went for the next best thing: Banh Mi Dog.
|Banh Mi Dog ($7)|
Pork liver, pickled cucumber, pickled red onion, jalapeno, sweet chili, cilantro
I also wanted to try a second variety, and after some internal debating I settled on the Hawaii Dog.
|Hawaii Dog ($5)|
Pineapple Salsa, bacon, sweet soy, mint
Both were delicious and satisfying. The combinations of the flavors worked out well. I think it is definitely true that the toppings are what made these hot dogs great. The frank itself isn't bad, but I personally prefer the locavore at Franktuary. Hot Dog Fiend had only good things to say about her Chili Cheese Dog, and she was nice enough to share her fries.

Needless to say, we enjoyed our visit to Station Street. Hope to come back and try some other dogs soon!
