It's not on the menu (for better or worse) ... But if you ask real nicely, the kitchen at Sir Veza's Taco Garage will make you up a true Tucson oddity: a hot dog sliced in half with applewood bacon, charro beans and all the fixings on top of a tortilla.
The Sonoran hot dog taco seems so simple, it's almost preordained: After all, isn't this snappy wonder just the next logical step in our bacon-wrapped obsession? But despite what Circle K wants you to think, hot dogs and flour tortillas are indeed strange bedfellows. Compared to your average bun, the thin wrap struggles to hold in all that salsa and mayo and mustard; a mess waiting to happen ...
Either way, well done on their part! With each freakishly flavorful bite, I thought of how lucky we are to live in such a strange and wonderful place called Tucson, the only city in the world that makes this amazing aberration we call the Sonoran hot dog taco. How lovely it all feels, at least until you finish and step out of the air conditioning ...
Weird fact: The regular Sonoran dog is actually called the "Sirnoran Dog," thank you very much!
