Best places to get a hotdog in London

In the midst of National Hotdog Month, here are the best places to get your hands on the German creation in the capital

Much like pet lovers are often divided into 'cat' or 'dog people', there seems to be a similar divide in the food world. When it comes to getting your hands dirty with some delicious meat enveloped by bread, do you go for hamburgers, or hotdogs? The debate over which one is better will never end, but, in celebration of National Hotdog Month (which definitely is a thing), we've compiled a list of all the best locations where you can show your true colours and favour the sausage over the patty.

Big Apple Hot Dogs

#WorldCupofHotDogs from #BAHD. This is the #Saudi Arabian option. #Halal beef sausage, with tabouleh and Jajeek.

The recipe might be Polish, but the sausages are 100% made in Britain. You can expect only high quality ingredients from Big Apple Hot Dogs, which are all sourced from within the UK. They call them 'Sausages That Make You Smile', and if you happen to find their truck at an event, or book one of their 'sausage parties', their surely will.

Popdogs

'Jamaican Me Horny' 🙊 ..The newest dog on the block - 100% chicken sausage, homemade slaw & a jerk marinade that packs a punch from @mamasjerk. Absolute filth!

Starting out as a market stall in Camden in 2013, Popdogs has ventured out into the UK by bringing their homemade, locally sourced creations to festival venues. Follow them on social media to know where they will be popping up next, and expect to be served with a cheeky sausage innuendo.

Oh My Dog!

🌵#NOSHVILLE picnic teaser🌵 We stopped by #KERBanist @growlerslondon's house this afternoon ahead of our Americana hoedown on Friday for a preview of Charlie and Lara's one-off Deep South dishes and you are all in for a treat. @growlerslondon have been wowing us with their fermented chilli butter Portuguese pregos since they joined our #InKERBator one year back... but this backyard creative Americana themed explosion (incorporation @frankshotsauce and @frenchsmustard - that's our theme this…

The exclamation is well deserved, with their Heritage breed Frankfurters proving to be a hit in Camden Lock Market. Open 7 days a week, you can take a stroll down to their truck on your lunch break and decide between a Chilli-SteakDog, a DeputyDog, or one of their rotating specials, all served in demi-brioche buns.

As the very German name suggests, this is the best place to get a genuine german hotdog. Missing the original hotdog, Azadeh and Florian started importing meat from their trusted family butcher in 2008, and their business has been growing ever since. With a very personalizable menu, you can be sure to get a proper German hotdog exactly to your taste.
Various venues.

Champagne and hotdogs might seem like an odd combination, but that's exactly what Bubbledogs is all about. Every hotdog on the menu can be made into a vegetarian option, and there's even a chocolate hotdog if you have a sweet tooth and are feeling adventurous. If you fancy a champagne recommendation while you're at it, you can go on their website and get one based on what your day was like, what you like to snack on, and who's your favourite James Bond (yes, really).

A 1959 Citroen HY van that used to be a fire engine is the unlikely travelling kitchen at Engine Hotdogs. You can check out their social media to see where they are parked at any given day, or even hire them for your private event. Choose between pork, beef or vegetarian sausages, and you can even add some fiery sauces (just remember the van doesn't put out fires anymore).
Various locations.

When you think 'hotdog', Iceland might not be the first country that comes to mind, but Chilly Katz is here to change your mind. A 'staple for the modern Viking', their hotdogs can be vegetarian and even vegan, and you can pair them with a salad for a healthy alternative to greasy chips.

If you're a vegetarian and are tired of scouring restaurant menus for the one option that you can eat, you will have no such problem with Not Dogs. Katie and Jane used to be in your shoes, and they did something about it, creating this veggie-friendly alternative to traditional hotdog places. Even the nuggets, fries and milkshakes are vegan!

You might be used to grabbing a pretzel from Auntie Anne's, but they do dogs too. If you'd rather have a cup of mini hotdogs to have on the go, or a regular sized, pretzel-enveloped hotdog with a variety of toppings, then Auntie Anne's is just the place you're after.
