Encased You Missed It

Chicagoans have long humored New Yorkers when the latter try to convince us that their hot dogs and/or pizza is superior to ours. To suggest that the flopsweat dough discs and street-vendor rodentwater sausages of the Big Apple could compare to our city's culinary prowess is truly worth a chuckle. New York is superior to Chicago in precisely two ways: Rat-to-human ratio and the residency of Miss Gwyneth Paltrow. Otherwise, keep trying in the kitchen. To wit: no less than New York's own globetrotting chef Anthony Bourdain has included Hot Doug's on a brief list of can't miss eateries around the world.

I waited in line for 45 minutes at Hot Doug's and ate two of the best hot dogs of my life. It was worth every minute.
Oh, and you have to try the duck fat fries. Mmmm, delicious.
