The best hot dogs in Barcelona

The best hot dogs in Barcelona aren’t that hard to find actually, you just need to know where to look. You can mostly find them in the Eixample areaEl Raval and the Gothic Quarter. When thinking about Spanish food, a hot dog isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. However, some of the restaurants on our list added a fun Spanish twist to their hot dogs. And if you are just not a big fan of the Spanish kitchen we surely recommend you to go and try some of these hot dogs.

A Little history lesson

The hot dog is originally from Frankfurt, Germany. From there, it spread to various places in Europe and then the European emigrants brought it to the United States. In the United States, it became a type of street food that was very popular among the middle class. But the first person who turned it into a success was once again a German. He started selling hot dogs on the beaches off Cooney Island. The sausage that is used can be any but the most common is the Frankfurter sausage which is about 15 cm. The meat of the sausages can also be different, you can have them with chicken, turkey, meat substitute for vegetarians, and pork which is the most common. Watch the video below to learn something about Nathan’s hotdogs in Cooney Island. Nathan’s hotdogs have been there for 100 years and people are still lining up for them.

The Box

The Box is a cute little restaurant in the Gothic Quarter with Latin street food and drinks. On the menu you can find bagels, chilaquiles, hot dogs (of course), burritos, quesadillas, and Nachos. They also have a very good drinks menu full of special and classic cocktails, shots, all types of beers and wines and soft drinks. The interior of The Box is colourful and vibrant and full of good vibes. It hasn’t got a lot of tables but luckily you can also take the hot dogs with you. The hot dogs at The Box are made with Latin influences, so for example they have the Lola which is made with ground beef, cheese, guacamole, mayonnaise and cilantro. All the hot dogs can be made vegetarian.

The Dog is Hot gives you a lot of options when it comes to hot dogs. They have Easy Hotdogs, their own suggestions, specialities, baked potatoes and nachos. Easy Hotdogs are the cheapest option. With Easy Hotdogs you can choose one added ingredient, like pickles, fried onion, or jalapeños. The suggestions of  ‘The Dog is Hot’ range from a Basicdog to Rusticdog. But if you really want the full hot dog experience we suggest you order one of their speciality hotdogs. Our favourite is the Specialdog with rocket, guacamole, raw onion, grated cheese, and dry tomatoes. Besides delicious hot dogs, they also have some very tasty baked potatoes and nachos. They have a hot dog van that moves around but if you want to go to the official restaurant it is in Ciutat Vella District.
