What I Crave: Things I Can't Have

Today's post was going to be about my travels to date around the bay area searching for the perfect Chicago-style dog. While flipping through my endless supply of food photos, I got distracted by other goodies I can't have at the moment. Two such goodies I forgot to include in Monday's list: ceviche and Another Monkey's Thai-style Tom Yum Shrimp Nachos.

What I Crave: Foods I Can't Have

In case you're curious about why I was on the hunt for the perfect Chicago-style dog before we got pregnant here's the story. When I lived in Austin I fell in love with this hot dog: Vienna Beef dog on a Poppyseed bun served with a crunchy dill pickle spear, two beefsteak tomato wedges, and two sport peppers, topped with sweet pickle relish, diced onions, yellow mustard, and a dash of celery salt. Surprisingly it's hard to find this delicacy in the bay area. In a future post, I'll reveal the hits and misses from my search.

Know of a spot that serves up a Chicago-style dog in the Bay Area? Please share!

Bon Apetit!
