The soldiers at
Fort Dix are picking up a taste of Jersey culture -
Italian Hot Dogs. The guy in front of me ordered a
"Polish". He had to be from Chicago.
Did he want
potatoes on it? Peppers? Onion?" Nope, "Just
mustard and relish. Wait, what's that?" The
customer next to him was handed a double Italian hot
dog. "I'll take one of those. Never seen a
hot dog like that before."
Can't ask for a
better location. Just outside of Fort Dix's main
gate. Most of the customers were soldiers when I
That's a double
Italian hot dog above, a single sausage to the right and
a singe dog below that. The innards are perfect
- not only the hot dog or sausage, but the peppers,
onions and potatoes too. The pizza bread it comes
in is more American than Italian, but they're working at
that. For some reason the Italian Bakeries in
South Jersey can't bake North Jersey pizza bread.
Even though the bread is softer than traditional pizza bread I
liked the way it made the dog more functional. Easier
to crush everything together to fit in my mouth.
