Michigan dog

Thursday 12 January 2012

This is the Michigan dog at Dunn's, a famous Montreal smoked meat restaurant here in town. Now, at every poutine and steamies place in town (Quebecois food), they offer a Michigan dog. I finally had to try one out. It seems that it is just a chili dog. I asked why it's called a Michigan dog, and the answer I got was: "Well, Michigan is close to Montreal, and . . . philly cheese steak, things like that." Ha! That made my day, anyway. Canadians can't really point fingers at Americans for having bad geography or cultural understanding, I guess!
