Montreal hot dogs: steamed or toasted?

Montreal is known for having hot dogs that are just ever so slightly different from those you find in the rest of Canada or the USA. And so, to really put the dog to the test, I called on Tom Johansmeyers, a New York-based blogger for Gadling and self-proclaimed hot dog expert.

Save the Pint!

You can’t define Montreal’s architecture, unlike Paris and its Haussmann buildings, or New York and its art deco skyscrapers. I don’t think there’s any other place in the world with such a strange mix of different forms of architecture from all eras – concrete structures from the 60s perfectly paired with Old Montreal buildings from centuries past, or sleek and modern creations made of steel and glass.  That’s probably what makes Montreal so unique.
