Hot Dog

2014 Winner: Que Padre Taqueria y Mas

After observing a moment of silence for the late Gregg “Boston Super Dog” Gale, we offer a paean to an elaborate, unique wienie preparation from another humble purveyor. At this teensy East Boston taqueria, chef/owner Victor Duran plates a Sonoran-style hot dog: a bacon-wrapped frankfurter in a closed-end, split-top bun, nestling atop pinto beans, tomatoes and diced raw onions, topped with squiggles of mayo, yellow mustard and jalapeno sauce. It’s all of four bucks, and it’s fantastic.
