Last night, Food Network aired the episode of Bobby Flay’s “Throwdown” where he challenged Pinks Hot Dogs to see who could not only make the better dog, but also who could serve the most dogs in an hour. The show was surprisingly fun, mostly due to the energy of the Pinks family who participated in the challenge.
Eating LA’s Pat Saperstein was one of the judges, and she wrote about the experience a couple months ago, even though she withheld who the winner ultimately, as I also will. However, I gotta say that after watching I was tempted to drive down LaBrea and grab a dog.
Bobby Flay’s “Nacho Dog” also looked delicious, and it so happens the recipe is listed on the Food Network site. It includes homemade guacamole and salsa, plus some crunch from using tortilla chips as a topping.
