is Rhode Island for Hot Dog. Everyone in Rhode
Island calls a hot dog a Saugy or a Saugy dog. But
there is only one Saugy dog and that elusive hot dog is
made by Saugy Provisions since 1869.
Saugy's are all
over Rhode Island, but dog gone if I could find them up
until this past trip. No hot dog stands had them.
Couldn't find them in the markets, but they are there.
This trip I found
them at the Food For Thought Food Festival. At
least I found half a Saugy Dog on half a bun. They
were sampling them. No problem. I know math.
1/2 x 6 equals three Saugy Dogs. I had my fill.
A guy named Mike
was dishing them out from his fancy cart. Mike
knows his Saugy's. They gotta have snap.
That's how you know a real Saugy. It's got the
Good flavor too.
Well worth seeking out.
