It's raining 'dogs'

tempting ‘Say Cheese’ and ‘Sev The World’.

And this is the reason ‘Hungry Hogs’, a hot dog diner in 5th Block, Koramangala, came about. A one-of-its-kind eating joint in Bangalore, this place was started by Rahul Cherian, Nag Manohar and Darshan R because of their love for food. Buzzing with energy and delicious food, this place is perfect for those who are looking for a hearty yet unique meal.

The place can seat just about ten people at a time. The decorative red walls immediately grab your attention and so do the many messages left by the happy customers. “The crowd mainly consists of college students and young professionals but lately, there have been a lot of kids visiting us with their families,” says Rahul Cherian.

‘Hungry Hogs’ has a small menu with only six types of hot dogs, served with either a potato or a chicken sausage. The two extremely popular items here are ‘Say Cheese’ and ‘Italian Job’. ‘Say Cheese’ has a stuffing of coleslaw, jalapenos, cheese, barbecue sauce and mustard. The soft bread melts in your mouth and tastes delicious with the toppings and on the whole, the hot dog is quite juicy. ‘Italian Job’, on the other hand, rides high on the melted cheese and is extremely popular with the women customers. This hot dog combines pizza toppings with capsicum, tomatoes, olives and cheese.

Even though these two are the favourites of the crowd, Rahul informs that he and his friends like different flavours. ‘Sev The World’ is one of them. “It is an Indianised version of a hot dog and there are many people who come here just to have that,” he says.

“‘Just Chillin’ is our other favourite but it is extremely spicy. Some people consider eating this hot dog as a challenge,” he adds. ‘Sev the world’ includes mint, tamarind chutney, onions and ‘sev’, in a crunchy combo with an overwhelming tamarind flavour which is perfect for people who like some tang in their food. ‘Just Chillin’ is a combo of Mexican baked beans, chilli and red pepper sauce. Eat with caution is what the owners suggest!
The other flavours on the menu are ‘Plain Jane’, meant for meat-lovers, which is served with just barbecue sauce and mustard. ‘Corny Island’ is a mix of mango pickle, lemon pepper and corn. The place also serves fries, cheese garlic bread and milkshakes. The friendly staff, chilled out ambience and mouth-watering food make ‘Hungry Hogs’ special and most definitely worth a visit.
