Served for the first time in 1871 in Coney Island, in a few time the hot dog became an iconic food in the United States. A cheap and and fast food perfect for the frenetic life in New York.
The real hot dog is a long bun with a grilled or steamed wurstel on the inside that can be made with pork, chicken, beef or turkey meat, while the bread is usually made with milk. The other ingredients are at your discretion and taste: you can choose among a mix of onion, cheese, chili, relish, sauerkraut and much more. In Manhattan you can find everywhere the hot dog carts, but if you prefer, you can yours in a more relaxing background, seated in one of the typical restaurants.
