Quick Chop! The new van on the block - Papa's Hot Dogs

I still get excited when I see a new food truck grace the streets of Adelaide, so when exiting my office building for lunch yesterday I immediately gravitate towards this shiny van like a magpie to light.

Papa's Hot Dogs is a new kid on the block - literally having it's first day out yesterday.  Papa's serves gourmet hotdogs where the customer can select the specific sausage type, toppings and condiments to add. 

New and shiny!

After some deliberation, I decide that I will go for the standard bun, with spanish chorizo, sauteed onions, cheddar cheese and hot mustard with a side of fries.  The bun was soft and slightly sweet (think burger theory bun for hotdogs), the chorizo was well charred and tasty (I did want to try the Wagyu but didn't have the time) *sobs*.  All-in-all a very tasty meal.

Paired with some shoestring fries dusted in rosemary and salt and its a great lunch-time meal.  In total, the meal was $10 so in my opinion a decently priced and decently sized lunchtime meal.  I will be visiting this van again to try the other sausages and condiments that they have on offer!

Congratulations on your first day!

  1. Thanks Pacman. I will have to try this one when I see it on the street!

  2. Tried them recently, was very pleased :) Have to keep a lookout for them next time and try the other sausages they have.

    1. Hi Anonymous - I have only tried the Chorizo and the Wagyu, so definitely have to try the others!
