So I find myself in the Windy City in time for the first game of the Stanley Cup Playoff with the Boston Bruins and the Chicago Blackhawks. Unfortunately tickets for the first game are a little out of my price point. But know for sure I will be watching the game with other Bruin fans on Wednesday evening!
What awaits the Bruin fans when they arrive in Chicago? A Chicago Hot Dog of course! In all my years visiting Chicago I have never tried this delicacy before. Being from New York, I grew up on grilled …
You might go to a mall and feel like you are home since the stores are mostly the same and malls are no longer as unique with local flavor as they once were, but food is different! Each location we visit brings its own flavor from restaurants to supermarkets! Visit a local supermarket and you will find brands you never heard of! Try a hot dog stand in Boston and it won’t be the same as if you were in Chicago or New York!
This past Sunday, the Boston Globe Sunday Magazine section had an article called Top Dog, which frank …
July is National Hot Dog Month so it is only fitting to write more about my hot dog memories.
Last week I wrote about the impact the kosher deli had on my love for hot dogs but my story continues with another memory of taking a ride to go to the Nathan’s in Oceanside, New York back in the 60’s! I don’t recall ever going to the Nathan’s in Coney Island but I recall many trips to Nathan’s in Oceanside.

Summer time for a season griller like me is time to indulge in foods like hot dogs and hamburgers more often than in the winter. I started to think about my journey with hot dogs where my love for hot dogs began and what my first memories of hot dogs were!
Growing up on Long Island, New York, my first memories of hot dogs were from the kosher delis I would go with my family. In the window you could gaze at the hot dogs cooking on one side and the knishes on the other side of the …
In Arlington, Virginia there is a nice little storefront called Backyard Barbeque run by a very nice couple. It is definitely worth a visit in fact I visited it twice during my stay. Why you might wonder because it was really good!
If you can believe it I have never had pulled pork so we decided to get the pork pack dinner. The pulled pork came in a quart size container, with two side, sauce for the pulled pork and rolls. We chose cole slaw, macaroni and cheese and added baked beans as well. The pulled pork was moist and delicious …
I recently took a road trip and went to places in Boston I am ashamed to say I have never been to in the many years I have lived here!
A trip down Blue Hill Avenue led us to South Boston and Castle Island but on the way back a visit to Simco’s on the Bridge for a foot long hot dog on a buttered grilled bun with mustard and sauerkraut was a welcomed treat. Simco’s is an landmark that has been in business since the depression and is located at 1509 Blue Hill Ave. Their menu …
