So, where to eat in New Haven before we set off? Chris Ayers had recommended Rawley's for superior hot dogs, but their answering machine said they were closed on Sunday. Louis Lunch has historical significance with this claim to being the origin of the hamburger, but their phone didn't answer. So we headed towards Super Duper Weenie.
A celebrity endorsement:
We both had the New Englander hot dog, with sauerkraut, bacon, mustard, relish, and cole slaw. It was pretty good, but we weren't blown away. I felt that it would have improved the hot dog for the bacon to be much crisper, or cut into smaller pieces; it was hard to bite through the bacon neatly.
We also got an order of fries; one order of fries provided a whole lot of thin, crisp little fries.
Along with my meal, I got a bottle of Hosmer Mountain Tangerine Sparkling Water. (Hosmer Mountain is a Connecticut-local Roadfood-listed bottler.) I liked this quite a lot, because it was tart and refreshing, but not sweet at all. Lori made a face at it because it was not sweet at all.
