Good point. As frustrating as this is, and least it is on the agenda. One of this city's greatest tourism assets is going wasted, but this will get done eventually. Besides, I want to be able to buy a stuffed pepper or some some oxtail on the street. How about some Mayan hot chocolate infused with Australian ginger, Madagascar vanilla, orange peel, and chili?

I'm pissed off, but on the bright side Toronto's street dogs are delicious.

Yes, they are. Unfortunately, I watched a horrific British food show about hot dogs and sausages. I haven't been able to eat one since. Should I spare you the details so you can continue to enjoy them????

Lesson learned, don't eat British hot dogs! My friend from England goes mad
for the hotdogs here; he is coming next month and already has an agenda mapped out
to hit his favourite hot dog vendors, and squeeze in about ten Icy Caps from You-Know-Who!
NYC hotdogs are ok, but Toronto's are the best I have had anywhere, and the
selection of condiments is amazing. The toasted bun is such a nice touch, too.

I wish that had Tim's all over the world. It certainly would do well. If Afghans in Kandahar developed a taste for it in just a few short months, you know they've got a bright future. As far as the hot dogs go, I wish I didn't see that food show. I love the hot dogs and sausages, but shudder just getting reminded of what it's made of. I want one really badly, but know I couldn't put it in my mouth unless I was really drunk.

First time I was in University I worked my way through by working in a meat packing plant. The food was perfectly fine, and I have no idea where some of these urban myths spring from that hotdogs are made of chicken lips and pig's..a**h****s. There is fat and some tissue in it, but nothing gross, from my experience. Often bull meat was used, as it is too tough to be used for steaks, but it is cheap and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it when it is ground fine. If a person is really grossed out, eat the veggie dogs... they taste a LOT like the real ones as they get the nice barbecued flame flavour.

I would appreciate that. Ignorance is bliss and I love a good hot dog.

Toronto stacks up okay in North America but doesn't compare to the land of sausage and sauerkraut. I would also put my Chicago and Philly experience above Toronto eventhough Toronto may have a larger selection of extras. New York sucks on the other hand

mmm! soft on the outside and crunchy on the inside! Meat packing plants in Canada are very closely monitored, and national brands all have a permanent, full time Federal Inspector on the premises. It would be pretty hard to sneak in a load of duck's feet and cats into a batch of wienies!

What a shame there was no demolition. People gathered 'round and nada! Not a good thing for an something that was touted as an "event".

That video, btw, is hot!
