A Veggie Dog Challenge We Couldn’t Care Less About

No Hot Dog For You!

No Hot Dog For You!

A couple of weeks ago The Village Voice pitted Baby Cakes against Doughnut Plant in a Doughnut throwdown (Babycakes won!) Yesterday they issued a veggie dog challenge in which LES’ Crif Dogs and Park Slope’s Bark went head to head.

We would care if either of these two options were actually vegan.

You see, while it’s nice that Bark uses Field Roast, they also happen to slather their dog in butter and mayo and serve it a non-vegan bun. Crif Dogs gets points for having both a vegan dog and toppings but falls a little short with their non-vegan bun* (And really, what’s a hotdog without a bun?)

According to our handy-dandy restaurant guide Foodswings is the only place serving up all-vegan hotdogs. (although, to be fair, Kate’s Joint should probably get a mention).

Any SV readers out there know of a good places to get an all-vegan hotdog? If you do, dump em’ in the comments section below!

*I’ve called Crif Dogs various times to confirm if their bun was vegan and have gotten mixed answers over various tries

This is one of Supervegan’s posts for Vegan MoFo 2009.

    What do you mean by “all-vegan”?

    Willie’s Dawgs, F&B, and Better Burger all serve genuinely vegan hot dogs. But they all serve meat as well.

    I suppose, I meant the dog, all the toppings and the bun. I know there are some non veg places (like the examples you mentioned) that have veggie dogs, just wasn’t sure which were “all vegan”

    Your suggestions are exactly what I was hoping to garner from the post.

    Even though they also serve meat, F&B has some delicious vegan hot dogs. And great sweet potato fries!

    “Babycakes Contest?” It’s bad non-vegan food versus bad vegan food. Example from their website: The Gluten-free Chocolate Muffin contains near 50% of the daily recommended limit of SATURATED FAT, and 20 grams TOTAL fat (1/3 a day’s worth if you follow Fed Guidelines, near total Esselstyn/Ornish recommendations for a day — the guys who reversed heart disease with no-added fat vegan diets).

    Fat/Oil, Sugar, and Flour… sure, all vegan, but not necessarily good for your heath… even in moderation. ONE high fat meal affects the elasticity of your circulatory system for over 6 hours… that’s measured fact, not theory.

    IMHO, winning the above contest is hardly cause for celebration.

    FYI, Mark

    Youre the reason that people think that all vegans are militant jerks. You’re on a vegan site arguing over vegan food – the same Mark who was getting all crazy in the Pie post too.

    That’s cool that you want to eat healthy for every second of your life but don’t expect me to. If I do decide to eat a cupcake (or a pie) that doesn’t mean thats ALL i eat. I don’t subsist on them, guy.

    Maybe there’d be more vegans if i didn’t seem like it was a moratorium on good tasty food. Vegan food can be all things…

    Dirty Franks and Rad Dog in Columbus, OH are pretty legit.

    Mark, plenty of us are vegan for ethical reasons and could care less about health.

    Even those of us who do eat healthy 95% of the time want to enjoy a good cupcake now and then. And if I’m going to eat a cupcake, I want the best cupcake I can get, not “health food” disguised in cupcake form.

    In Austin, TX, Dog Almighty has vegan hot dogs, vegan whole wheat buns, and vegan chili. There’s lots of veggies to add as well, and they also have vegan chocolate covered graham crackers.
