Hot dogs aren't normally what come to mind when you think of a healthy snack, but Hop Dog is trying to change that perception. This little take-away, nestled in one of the pedestrian streets near Grand Place in central Brussels is bringing new life to 'meat in tube form.'
A Hop Dog is an 100% chicken sausage. It is served with homemade sauces and buns and features all fresh ingredients. If you want to be even more virtuous, there are organic and veggie Hop Dogs on offer.
My favourite is the Spicy, with barbecue sauce and crispy fried onions, but offerings also include pesto, mustard and a monthly special. It's a great stop for a quick break from sight-seeing or shopping in the city centre.
