Vegan Hot Dogs? Yes You Heard Right!11:31
Ok, so I'll admit that hot dogs have never really been my thing. Put a veggie spin on this classic fast food however, and I am more than intrigued!
I first heard of 'Not Dogs' and their all veggie menu just a few weeks back. It is a new restaurant situated in the heart of Birmingham just between Grand Central and the Bullring, making it the perfect spot for refuelling after a little post-Christmas shopping in the city.
The interiors are bright and airy with pops of neon orange and purple adding an element of fun and quirkiness to the space.
Choosing from the menu was not too difficult in my case. I opted for the 'Vegan Dog' with houmous (because who doesn't love houmous?) and we also ordered the 'Plain Jane' and 'The Ticklish Tikka Dog'. To my surprise the bun was light and fluffy and the Quorn Bratwurst itself - despite being described as meaty - didn't at all feel heavy on the stomach.
With gluten-free options and a creative selection of toppings on offer, there really is something for everyone at Not Dogs and it's definitely worth stopping by and supporting a local business if you are in the area!
I am so happy to see more vegan food becoming available in Birmingham and I am hoping this is something that continues to grow throughout 2017.
