In the next month or so, you’ll be able to get your hands on a Po Dog without leaving Ballard.
The popular hot doggery on Capitol Hill and in the U District is busy getting their newest location ready at 2014 NW Market Street, the space that Market Street Traders moved out of earlier this year.
We asked owner Laura Olson about what makes Po Dog unique:
We serve up our wieners in a custom made Macrina Brioche hot dog bun that was made specifically to fit our size wieners. We offer Uli’s Famous Sausages as an alternative to our 100% Kosher all-beef dog. Po Dog does different monthly specials in addition to our 12 signature dogs. This month we are featuring the Kimchee dog, next month will be our Thanksgiving Dog (mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing and cranberry sauce). Our signature dogs vary in selection from a peanut butter banana dog to a more simple version of the Seattle Dog with cream cheese and scallions.
More dogs on the menu here.
Olson says they hope to open mid-to late November. Once open they will serve dogs 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 2:30 a.m. on Saturdays. (Thanks Brooke and Kim for the tip!)
