Two dogs in one bun. That's how they do it at the German Hot Dog Co. in the skyway level of the TCF building in downtown Minneapolis. I didn't believe the man behind the counter until he pointed to a large picture of the subject in question on the wall. "See. Two dogs. One bun." he said. I looked up at the picture and I'll be goddamned if there wasn't two german style dogs nestled tightly in the bosom of that German potato bun--right there in front of me. So I ordered one. But got two! The only available toppings are onions, brown mustard, sauerkraut and parsley. Fine by me. Like most German engineered products, they were well built if not a little expensive. This was an extra special dog hunt because bearded buddy Gabe Gathman was right there with me, every step of the way.
