Brazilian Hot Dogs

Did you know that in Brazil (at least in Sao Paulo) hot dogs are served with some very unique toppings?  It's true.

If you were to go buy a hotdog from a street vendor,  he would automatically put  TWO dogs in your bun.  Then, in addition to your normal condiments of ketchup, mustard, and relish, you could also choose mashed potatoes, corn, and those pik-nik  string potato chip things.  Yes!

When I lived in Brazil the vendors were all very shocked when I insisted on just one dog instead of two (they're the same price).  But I did learn to love my high-carb dogs with mashed potatoes and chips on top.  Yum.


So today I introduced my kids to this gourmet delicacy.  Let's just say it was a big hit!
