Signature Poutine Hot Dog vs. Canadian Caesar Hot Dog @ Rogers Centre

Dude, nothing goes together like hot dogs and baseball, bro! Last year, I destroyed 10 hot dogs for 10 bucks on Loonie Dogs Night, but now the Blue Jays are kicking it up a notch at Schneiders Porch in the Outfield District, where they’ve got some funky new culinary creations like the Signature Poutine Hot Dog and the Canadian Caesar Hot Dog. You KNOW I had to try them both, bro!!!!!!

The poutine dog knocks it outta the park with the classic Canadian combo of cheese curds, fries and gravy on top of an all-beef frank. It’s basically La Banquise in a bun, bro! Although the fries here are more like mini hash browns. I guess full size fries on top of a hot dog would be weird — unless, of course, you’re in Pittsburgh.

But now we’re about to kick it up another notch with the Canadian Caesar Hot Dog. This playful, mysterious little dish does have a bit of a caesar flavour, thanks to the tomatoes and celery leaves. Plus, it’s topped with lotsa good things like green peppers, fried onions and bacon bits. I mean, you could make a Canadian Caesar Flip-Flop with those things, and it would still taste good!

And I gotta say, while I’d eat 10 poutine dogs on any given Tuesday (unfortunately, they are NOT part of Loonie Dogs Night), I gotta say, the Canadian Caesar is the winner, winner, hot dog dinner!!!!

Now, Schneiders Porch was closed for a private event, so I didn’t get to slay those dogs on their patio. Instead, I headed over to the WestJet Flight Deck, where they’ve got a new bar serving up some craft beers that won’t give Kid Rock a heart attack. Like, I never thought I’d find Bellwoods Jutsu at the ballpark, bro! Too bad they don’t have Jelly King, though…

But that’s not all, folks! The Flight Deck also has Henderson’s Rush Golden Ale on tap!!! Now, I wasn’t a big fan when I had it in a can, but on draught, it’s got a richer, maltier flavour that gets by on you. (insert drum solo here)
