The hot dog has always been in the shadows of the hamburger. Let’s dedicate it a few privileged paragraphs and a few recommendations to make amends for that small injustice. One of them is Feltman’s Hot Dogs (Calle Sevilla, 2 – very close to our hotel in central Madrid), which they say serves the authentic hot dog, with German sausage smoked in especially selected beech tree wood and daily homemade buns that are served hot.
It is a care for details and elaboration that translates into what they call gourmet hot dog. They also make outstanding cakes and the sauces that they complement the hot dogs with. Prices are affordable. Also write down Estocolmo (Calle de la Palma, 72) or Perrito Faldero (Calle San Lorenzo, 9(, where they serve giant hot dogs with special touches, such as their curry ketchup, in a cosy and modern atmosphere in the heart of Malasaña.
