Icelandic Hot Dogs Come to Alexandraplatz

Icelandic hot dogs come to Alexandraplatz tomorrow, between 6:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m., courtesy self-described culinary despot Bartek Komorowski.

This is not Komorowski's first dalliance with Reykjavik-style franks. To put it mildly, hot dogs are huge in Iceland. The Bæjarins beztu pylsur chain was once canonized as the best hot dog stand in Europe by the Guardian and had a memorable turn on the second episode of Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations. This 2010 feature in the Atlantic called the humble hot dog "The Pride of Iceland."

Because you want to know more, Icelandic hot dogs typically include a mishmash of beef, pork or lamb. Sweet mustard, fried and raw onions and a sweet relish mayonnaise sauce round out the condiment side of things. Roll up to Alexandraplatz like a boss tomorrow and order one eina með öllu - with "the works."
