Blue Casa, Dunedin, Fla. – This past weekend PETA released their ‘ Top Vegan Hot Dogs At Restaurants’ list. With a growing demand and popularity for meat and dairy free foods, PETA traveled across the Nation looking for those stand outs. We’ll, when they made it to Tampa Bay they didn’t find just one, they found two worthy of making the top 10 list, Dixie Dharma & Nah Dogs St.Pete!
Inside Market on South I not only found Dixie Dharma, but I also was introduced to Valhalla. (Yes I was in vegan food heaven)
Dixie made the top 10 list with their Hillbilly Chili Dawgs. No surprise, it has been one of my favorites for years. Consisting of TWO vegan dogs, a pretzel bun, blackened onions, scallions, and za’atar (a Middle Eastern spice blend). They are then smothered in house-made Indian-spiced chili “cheese” sauce.
It seems like just yesterday that I heard about Nah Dogs. That little metallic vegan hotdog wonderland on wheels. They may be new to the scene, but they will capture your tastebuds with their delicious and unique combination of flavors.
Nah Dogs made PETA’s top 10 list with their Yo Soy Dog. This dog is covered in nacho ‘cheeze’ sauce, corn salsa, jalapeños, crunched tortillas and topped with a drizzle of garlic ‘mayo’ sauce and some fresh cilantro.
As a long time Florida vegan foodie, it pleases me to see more and more locations throughout the state offering vegan food worth being recognized for. Having two eateries make the top 10 list for vegan hot dogs in the Tampa Bay area speaks volumes. Clearly showing that Florida & the Bay area have a market for vegan options, and the culinary skills to be named some of the best in the nation.
