Le Tricycle Hot Dogs

Hot dogs have taken off big time recently in Paris with the fast-food snack popping up at specially dedicated restaurants (Little Fernand) and trendy cocktail bars (Glass) alike, and food trucks - serving burgers and the like - have been going strong in the capital for the last couple of years (Camion qui Fume etc). Now, thanks to the lovely people behind Le Tricycle, the two trends combine, with Paris' first travelling hotdog stand having been launched earlier this month. Stunningly beautiful couple Coralie and Daqui pedal their red push-bike food cart to different - and invariably rollicking good fun - venues around the capital, serving the American street food classic with a twist: here everything is 100% vegetarian. Queues of intrigued - and salivating - punters line up at events such as Wanderlust Village to wolf down the fresh, tasty and more-or-less healthy wheat-protein dogs, with fun names such as Nate Dog (onion relish, fried onions), Snoop Dog (onion relish, fried onions, cabbage and carrots) and Red Hot Chili Dog (with chili sauce) all made to order using high-quality ingredients bought and prepared that very morning. Prices are super reasonable at just €4-5 and there are also scrumptious cookies and cheesecakes for dessert. Go on, treat yourself - have two. To find out where Le Tricycle will be next, see their website.
