Last seen in the springtime, when it tickled the fancy of Inquirer critic Craig LaBan, South Philly Tap Rooms Chef Scott Schroeder has put his popular Mexican hot dog back on the menu. Its a far cry from the authentic Mexican hot dogs that were all the rage in Phoenix, Tucson and Los Angeles last year, the Tap Rooms take on this cross-border meaty mutt is a divine amalgamation that starts with a Noacks hot dog wrapped in country bacon. From there its deep fried, placed on a toasted potato roll, and topped with mayonnaise, ketchup, yellow mustard, pickled jalapenos, red onions and diced tomatoes. It just may be the best dollar you ever spend.
