showdogs SF

One of the highlights of my recent trip to Germany was eating a whole lot of wursts and sausages.  See link –

Last week, my friend suggested we check out Show Dogs in San Francisco and the menu brought back great memories of my German adventures!

The space is hipster chic located between Union Square and the Tenderloin district of San Francisco.  The menu had so many great options that ordered three dogs instead of one!

I got their house maple pork with bacon chutney, house brown mustard and arugula:

IMG_9672  I don’t know but for me, the corn dog has to be with a hot dog.  When it’s with a sausage, it seems too fancy for me.  Beer batter was delcious, though…

And while I’m not a fan of lamb, I was drawn to their smoked merguez for the fig chutney that it was served with:

Not in the mood for sausages?  My friend got their fried chicken salad:

To was things down, I got their blueberry basil soda

What a great meal!
