Chicago-style hot dog – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I’ve been surfing through Wikipedia’s Sandwiches page, trying to find new, delicious ideas to try. I don’t know that a hotdog falls under the ‘Wich category for me, but this is definitely going on my list of Things To Do In Chicago:

A Chicago-style hot dog – as served in the U.S. city of Chicago, Illinois and it’s surrounding suburbs – is a steamed or boiled all-beef, natural-casing hot dog on a poppy seed bun, topped with mustard, onion, sweet pickle relish in fluorescent green, a dill pickle spear, tomato slices or wedges, sport peppers and a dash of celery salt – but no ketchup… Chicago-style hot dogs with all the toppings are sometimes called “dragged through the garden” because of the unique condiments.
