Thankfully, the grand master of steamed dogs at @HFXFL have come up with something both innovative and tasty.

Have you ever had a favorite bar or pub, where the food was good, the folks were friendly, and you'd go there when you just wanted something from a menu that you knew would be good no matter what you ordered? For me, the Fickle Frog is a perfect example of just such a place.

Weekly Series: Street Food

With the onset of a very wonderfully hot and sunny summer, I'm going to be doing a weekly piece on street food. Street food can be anything from a hot dog cart right over to a full gourmet food truck. If all goes well, I'd like to get folks from every part of Canada to participate and send in photos, writings, and other street food tales.

Drop me an email and let me know what you'd recommend from your town or area.
