Hot Dog Michigan.

Beauparlant, Shawinigan, Mauricie, Québec. May 19, 2012.

The Michigan Hot Dog is the Province of Québec’s version of the Coney Island Hot Dog, made famous not in Brooklyn but in the Wolverine State. Only in PQ, the michigan is a whole different beast. And depending on your purveyor, your michigan can be as different as anything else. Typically, your dog is enjoyed with tomato or spaghetti sauce instead of the chili used in Detroit or Flint. And cheese curds top the dog whereas in the Great Lakes State, you find prepared mustard and freshly diced onions.

But at the roulotte Beauparlant, a trailer permanently on the street of Shawinigan’s 5e avenue and around since 1910, I was more than surprised to find a footlong dog dressed in what seemed like ketchup or like the chili dip used with cold shrimps, topped with cabbage and french fries! Not exactly what I had in mind, but whatever. I’m not one to complain when I have a footlong between my teeth.

For my post about the Coney Island in Detroit:

Дизайнеры взялись не только «освежить» помещение, но и пересмотреть оригинальную планировку, чтобы сделать лофт более пригодным для комфортного проживания. Огромные пространства значительно облегчили задачу, интерьер получился легким, невесомым, качественным.
