The day we spent in Vancouver was sunny and fabulous: not too warm, and not too crowded. After a few hours walking around, poking in and out of touristy shops, exchanging money and doing lots of math (1.6 kilometer for every mile), we had worked up quite an appetite. What were we going to find to eat? Something tasty and not too expensive, we hoped. And so the quest began in earnest.
Out of nowhere Kate says “How about a veggie dog?” I stopped dead in my tracks. “That’s not funny. Don’t play games. I’m tired and hungry.” But Kate was serious – “No, really, right here. This vendor sells them.” And sure enough, I turned to my left and bam! A veggie dog vendor. Sure, sure, she sold ‘regular’ hot dogs as well, but I was very pleased to see the four words “Veggie Dogs” and “Cholesterol Free” on her umbrellas.
And now the dirty details. Were they good? Yes, very. These are not your garden variety veggie dogs, they were monsters. I got mine with onions and then put some honey mustard, relish and a pickle on top. Kate likes hers with a little bit of cheese and ketchup. The buns were well toasted and it made for a filling inexpensive meal.
Me, giving the seal of approval. After we finished eating we walked down the street and discovered another hot dog vendor who also sold veggie dogs. Yeah Vancouver!
