Bo-Dogs Brings Knishes and Hot Dogs to Penn Quarter

Knishes, Kosher dogs, and corn? Sure, why not. Those are the only three food offerings at Bo-Dogs, which New Jersey natives and brothers Jacob and Joseph Jemal opened earlier this week at 614 E St. NW. So, is this the legit New York knish D.C. has been waiting for? Unfortunately, not quite. Bo-Dog's knishes ($3) on an initial visit […]

GW Hot Dog Vendor Manouch Shuts Down After Abuse Allegation

This fall, for the the first time in 28 years, students at George Washington University weren't able to soak up the effects of their beginning-of-the-semester partying with a hot dog from Manouchehr Mokhtarinava. The famed vendor, known as “Manouch,” sold hot dogs until 4 a.m. from a silver cart near the corner of 20th Street and Pennsylvania […]

Bar Food Bites: Dodge City Dogs

My Sundays used to be all about bottomless mimosa brunch. But a few months back, I discovered sausages on Sundays at Dodge City on U Street NW, and it’s become a new staple of my weekend routine. I tell you this begrudgingly; Dodge on a Sunday afternoon is modestly quiet and never has a wait […]

Bye-Bye, Jelly Belly! U Hall Makes Room For Pho Dogs Galore

Late night nosh spot U Street Music Hall is shaking up its eclectic menu yet again. On Christmas Eve, the Northwest D.C. nightclub debuted its latest collection of interesting finger foods, including no fewer than six different variations of its original pho dog. The various new twists on the house-made Vietnamese soup-flavored frankfurter comes at […]

So Long, ChiDogO’s, We Hardly Chewed Ye

ChiDogO's, one of a handful of specialty hot dog shops to open in the District of late, is shutting its doors on Nov. 11 after barely a year in business near the corner of 14th and U Streets NW. Prince of Petworth has the scoop. An employee confirmed the closure for Y&H last night. Its […]

What Do Other Food Truck Operators Think Of The Fojol Bros?

Man On The Street DC dropped by Friday's Truckeroo festival of mobile food vendors at Nationals Park and chatted up the operators. Some highlights: the gal from DC Empanadas dishes about the stupid questions she sometimes hears from patrons. "The truck very clearly says 'DC Empanadas'....It doesn't say sandwiches, falafel, tacos, burritos, hot dogs..." Hot […]

D.C.’s Era of Fancy Hot Dogs Continues; Kliman Slams ChiDogO’s

A few weeks ago, Young & Hungry's Scott Reitz dug into D.C.'s current specialty hot dog renaissance. Although M’Dawg Haute Dogs tried to capitalize on this idea a few years ago, the Adams Morgan business fell flat. But that hasn't stopped newcomers, like ChiDogO's and DC-3. "The endeavor might seem gutsy considering how poorly M’Dawg […]

For the Young & Hungry: What’s Out for 2010 and What’s In for 2011

Food trucks flooded our streets and Twitter feeds. Connecticut Avenue welcomed a whole lot of ground-meat options (and then kicked one out.) In an age of comfort food, family-style Italian filled our carb-deprived bellies. But will mobile food, burgers and comfort food dominate 2011? Will small plates finally die? Here's our break down on what […]

Y&H to Hit the Road, Prepares to Eat Whitefish, Hot Dogs

Your interim Young & Hungry editor will soon be Michigan-bound for the Christmas weekend, heading to a land of Calvinism, chain restaurants, and Gerald R. Ford idol worship. (My District of Columbia relatives, apparently, were very upset with my grandmother for luring my Foggy Bottom born-and-bred grandfather away from the nation's capital back in the […]

Dog Days: Is the District Witnessing the Early Stages of a Hot Dog Boom?

The last time someone tried to make hot dogs a culinary star in the District, it didn’t take. Amsterdam Falafelshop owners Scott and Arianne Bennett thought they had another hit when they opened M’Dawg Haute Dogs in 2007 on 18th Street NW across from their popular chick pea–and–frites place. Foodies were talking about it, and […]
