Today Nancy and I met up with two food bloggers, Dave O’Ball and Vicky Weiss. We had never met Dave or Vicky up until today, but they are both very active on the social media channels and I have been “talking” to Vicky for many months on Twitter.
Here is Vicky’s website: http://momwhoruns.com/
And here is Dave’s website: http://www.davwudsfoodcourt.blogspot.ca/
Vicky suggested we meet at Fancy Franks located at 326 College Street just east of Augusta on the north side. Their website is under construction but they are on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/FancyFranksGourmetHotDogs and Twitter @FancyFranks.

We each ordered a different gourmet hot dog and then Dave did a masterful job with a plastic knife in dividing each hot dog into four portions. The first one was Nancy’s and my favourite and it’s my bad I didn’t catch the name! It was covered in Panko breadcrumbs and deep fried:
The service was fast and friendly and you could also add numerous toppings to any of their gourmet hot dogs. We did hear that their poutine is excellent and a gentleman sitting next to us was having an amazing chili dog—the aroma was fantastic.
Would we go back? Absolutely! If you find yourself in Kensington Market and decide you want a gourmet hot dog, head on up Augusta to College and visit Fancy Franks.
