Doggis (Santiago, Chile)
Av Andres Bello 2447, DPTO 5525, Providencia, Santiago, Chile
In the same food court I later return to get a hot dog. Doggis is a Chilean fast food chain specializing in hot dogs, but also serving burgers, fried chicken, and fries. While all pictures are of their foods “Italian” style (tomato, mayo, avocado), they have five other styles for the hot dogs. Unfortunately, they only have names and small pictures, but it is impossible to find out what is on them (and no one speaks English).
The hot dogs come in different sizes and I go for the medium size (12 cm), which costs Ps 1200 (ca. $2). I get it “crispy”, which looks like a chili dog on the picture, but turns out to include a kind of fluid cheese sauce, pieces of chewy bacon, and crispy onions. After getting rid of the cheese sauce, and unfortunately also most of the crispy opinion, I plunder the condiments bar and put ketchup, mustard, and some peppers spread on it. As most things in Chile, the hot dog tastes bland.
While they have pretty large hot dogs, they are bland and fairly tasteless.
