Monica Pope Creates Dateworthy Hot Dog at James Coney Island
Photo by Molly Dunn The creamy Cheddar cheese with the spicy and smoky chorizo is the perfect filling for this Kobe beef dog.
Props to the chef for taking two of the biggest (and most overdone) food trends -- wrapping food in bacon and replacing regular buns with pretzel buns -- and turning them into something magnificent.
Whether you enjoy a lot of meat, a lot of sauce or a sweet-savory combo for your dogs, the "Date with a Dog" is just what you need. It's got it all.
Pope's creation is available until the end of October; then it's chef Hugo Ortega's turn.
James Coney Island will donate $1,000 to the Recipe for Success Foundation, Pope's charity of choice.
