Slaw Dogs (Pasadena)


I tried the Green Monster and the Thai Slaw Dog.  Sadly, neither of them blew me away.

I was hoping to get some heat from the Green monster and it was really mild.  I was hoping for some spice from the Thai Slaw Dog and it too let me down. For all that was going on with the toppings, I found the dog rather bland for the flavor profile it should have had.  When I think Thai, I think bold spicy flavors. This dog didn't live up to the billing.    

Perhaps my taste buds were off this day.  I don't know.  I want to like the place but these particular dogs just didn't cut it for me.  I'll return one day to try other dogs as they have various creations that sound good - conceptually anyway. Hopefully, they'll materialize better that the ones I had on this day.

Thai Slaw Dog – Chicken Sausage, Spicy Peanut-Coconut Satay Dressing, Cilantro-Carrot Slaw, Crushed Peanuts & Siracha Aioli.

The Green Monster – Roasted Green Chili, Chipotle Mayo, Grilled Onions, Pepperjack & Spicy Garlic Salsa.

 Chili Cheese Dog - Beer Chili, Cheese, Mustard & Onions.
