Hotdogs have been a ball park favorite since then. It has become popular to whole world to the point that each place has its own version. For example, the Philippines has her red juicy hotdogs, while Chicago has her very popular Chicago Style Hotdog.
Not all hotdogs are the same. Some are made from pork while others are from a mixture of pork, beef, chicken, and even turkey. Chicago hotdogs are made from all-beef frankfurter. I personally like the Vienna Beef and Nathan’s Famous brands.
Chicago hotdogs can be distinguished at first glance because of its bun; spotted bread with poppy seeds called the poppy seed bun is commonly used. Aside from the bun, neon green pickle relish or super green pickle relish makes this hotdog look different and standout.
