Haute Dog anyone? The Unkle Karl of sausages wrapped in the finest of garbs, if Wintour ate carbs I’m sure she would agree The Dogfather is a contemporary masterpiece.
With adventurous flavour combinations like A Mexican chili-beef-cheese-dog with sauce containing tomatillo’s, cactus leaves, green peppers, green jalapeños called the Cactus Dog, this place has you dribbling whilst you queue (FYI 100% worth the wait you lazy arse). I unknowingly stumbled onto the van as I visited one of the more bizarre Christmas Markets held in a college in Lambeth today, and oh the angels sang when I smelt the vans offerings. I went for the namesake dog the Dogfather, a beautiful marrying of a beef dog with grilled chorizo slices, grilled onions, melted mozzarella, roast red pepper marinara, grated parmesan, a sprinkle chopped jalapeños. WOW OR WHAT! Look at the menu here.
I waited the grand total of 11 minutes for my dog to cook so I explored the range of home made sauces and cooed (in a cool fashion obviously) over the “Reservoir Dog” decorated tables. My name was called and I was thanked for buying a hot dog, Manners ladies and gents get you everywhere in life.
This street food genius has already rallied a huge fan base and is frequently recommended as one of the top dogs in London. With it’s incredible flavour combinations and the best bun I have ever come across I could become a regular purchaser at its permanent-but-not-so-permanent home at North Cross Road Market.
