Most Los Angeles inhabitants are no strangers to the illegal hot dog. Illegal hot dog? What are you talking about…?
Well, I am obviously talking about the bacon wrapped hot dog usually found around the street corner and in front of clubs of downtown Los Angeles.
Bacon wrapped hot dogs are so good you can smell them from miles away but why are they illegal anyways? More information after the jump.
The bacon wrapped hot dog as you can imagine is a heart attack in a meal and violates a few health regulations. Also, the hot dogs are cooked on modified shopping carts that probably don’t pass health inspection.
According to the Los Angeles Health department the only certified methods of cooking hot dogs are boiled and steamed. But who with their right minds will want to eat a soggy hot dog?
Often times you will see police or health regulators tracking down the “law breaking” hot dog vendor and the vendors run like there is no tomorrow to avoid punishment.
Violators of the “law” are subject to impoundment, fines, and jail time. Jail time for selling hot dogs? That is right…One woman actually received a 45 day sentence for violating health regulations by selling bacon wrapped hot dogs.
Anyways, a bacon wrapped hot dog is like a journey of a lifetime, sending you on a ride you will never forget. What you are getting into is a sausage wrapped in bacon pan fried until crispy and topped with oily peppers and onions finally to be topped with a jalapeno.
Enough talk, eat up you law breaker. (For the record you probably won’t receive jail time for eating one but oh boy does it feel good to be a little mischievous sometimes)
