LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Dodger dogs are going decidely more spicy with a Latin sabor…that’s flavor for all you Gringos.
Monday night, at an exhibition game against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, fans were able to order Doyer Dogs for the first time…the name, inspired by the Spanish-language version of the team’s name.
Doyer Dogs are all-beef hot dogs, grilled, served with nacho cheese, chili, chopped tomatoes, onions and, of course, jalapenos. And…don’t forget the Doyer Fries!
Stephanie Abrams, reporting for CBS 2 and KCAL 9 from el stadio de los Doyers, spoke with the Dodger executive chef — Joseph Martin — to find out the origin of the new offering.
Abrams also got to sample the new dog — double the weight of the regular Dodger Dog — and termed it “good” between chews.
And she also asked if this dog was “a heart attack on a plate.” Martin said…”Everything in moderation.” Right! We’re still getting four next time we hit the Stadium! Okay, maybe three.
The dogs will be available at Camacho stands throughout the ballpark.
Fans looking for something more healthy will also be able to find an arugula salad with toasted walnuts, pomegranate seeds, goat cheese and balsamic vinaigrette dressing at the Healthy Plate Carts. (Nothing against eating healthy, but can we talk about fattening food and stuff that is bad for us some more?!)
The Stadium and Dugout clubs are also offering up some new cocktails, including the “Go Blue!” which is made up of Absolut vodka, lemonade, a splash of Dekuyper blueberry-flavored Schnapps.
The regular season begins Thursday. Play ball…and save us some Doyer Dogs!
