Hot dogs are fast food that lately has been turned into a gourmet option. If you are into trying hotdogs with craft-made sausages or even seafood fillings, this is the list for you! I have gathered five unbeatable gourmet venues that have the best hot dogs around Bogotá.
Wurst is a small restaurant that sells traditional German sausages. They started off as a company that only made and sold the sausages in packages but have now grown into a nice little restaurant on Carrera 11 with Calle 96. It is safe to say that they use their own products. You can get the classic version or get the sausage cut up with curry sauce. They also offer different types of sausages and toppings. This is for sure one of the best hot dogs in Bogotá!
Big plus: They have German beers on tap. This place is perfect for a meal on the go.
El Cebollero takes hot dogs to a whole new level by offering 15 different options inspired by Colombian ingredients and landscapes. Yes, you read that correctly: Colombian landscapes! Each hot dog is crafted and named after a famous town. Dining here is nice and simple: you choose the type of hotdog, then the bread, and finally the side.
It is located in trendy Chapinero at Calle 58 #3a-17. Equipped with long wooden tables and benches, rustic-looking materials, and random little details, this place is perfect for a relaxed dining experience.
Frank’s is a nice hipster/chic restaurant in Quinta Camacho, perfect for almost any occasion. Among other offerings, they have amazing gourmet hotdogs on the menu. By “gourmet” I mean the traditional mixes with high-quality products. They became so famous that they have now opened two food truck that exclusively sells hotdogs, meaning that now you can get one of these treats at Sir Franks at Calle 70a #10a-42 or at one of the trucks that are usually located near Atlantis Plaza and La Universidad de Los Andes.
Tip: If you go to the restaurant, it is well worth also trying the other products.
Chorilongo is one of those places that you will always find at large events such as concerts and pop-up stores and with good reason because they have really good food. They also have two permanent locations in Zona G (Calle 71 #4-55) and Carrera 9 #73-9. Their hotdogs are inspired by different flavors from around the world and are what made them famous. And trust me – they are worth it. Now they are also working on their hamburgers which come in a wider variety of options and are perfect for a cheat day.
Recommendation: Make the most of their Colombian flavors and try the Colombian hotdog that comes with chócolo bread, chorizo, patacón, avocado, costeño cheese, and chimichurri.
Molie’s is the only restaurant on the list that doesn’t actually offer hotdogs made from pork or beef. The restaurant’s concept is that they are a port within the city and therefore they have seafood hotdogs. Inspired by Maine, USA, they come in three flavors – crab, lobster, and shrimp – with a side of coleslaw or fries. Top them off with a bit of lemon and Molie’s homemade sauces and you end up with a pretty unique product. Previously located in NN Food Hall, they have now moved to Plaza Claro near Parque Simon Bolivar.
Tip: On Wednesdays, they have an amazing deal, 2 for the price of 1.
