Que Perros - Hollywood
We were watching Anthony Bourdain's new show The Layover the other night and he was in Miami eating at a Colombian hot dog joint. We both knew that there was a place like that in Hollywood but had never even thought about going to a place like it. Well last night we decided to give it a try.
We went to Que Perros! which is just west of 59th Ave on Johnson street. It has been there for 10 years serving the same thing: hot dogs, hamburgers, and some Colombian specialties. If you are one of those people who:
A. Argue that New York hot dogs are better than Chicago style hot dog or "vice versa" or,
B. You are 6 years old and think that a hot dog is simply a way to get more ketchup into your diet
Then this is not the place for you. If, however, you like to try something totally out of the norm, give a Colombian hot dog a chance. Que Perros! is a small place that mostly offers take-out even though there are a handful of tables inside. They stay open till 3:00am to cater to the people coming home late from the Hard Rock Casino or any number of late night bars and clubs. Why go to Taco Bell to try to soak up some of the poison you have been putting in your system all night when you can get a hot dog instead?
Because of the size of the place we decided to take it to go and catch up on some of our shows trapped on the DVR. The best thing to compliment this dinner was something cold, cheap, and yellow. Anything brewed in Denver, Milwaukee, St. Louis, or most of Mexico works well with this.
We were shocked at how good the food was, and we will probably go back, but first I am going to go for a run because I just feel guilty.
