I go to Fort Lee every few months to go to Mitsuwa Asian market. So when I saw this on No Reservations I knew I would stop next time. I'm always down to continue my hotdog exploration of America. While deep fried jersey dogs are good the meat sauce on these were alpo (dog food). For $3-4 each they were on the expensive side but they were a rather large dog. I would pass on returning for these. I can get better dogs locally. Thumbs up for birch beer on tap though. Fort Lee has better food to offer. So check out Mitsuwa for some authentic Asian sushi or noodles.

Gourmet hot dogs in Palenville NY? Really? You betcha. Heather, the owner of Pippy's, is serving up cutting edge flavors that you would normally only find in Manhattan. Pippy's has an emphasis on using only the freshest and local ingredients. Heather has smoked sausages, hotdogs, fries, corn on the cob, potato salad, and daily specials that she changes up all the time. How about a hot dog wrapped in bacon and covered in pineapple salsa? Delicious. My favorite is the bahn me. Bahn Me is a Vietnamese sandwich which is gaining popularity in the trendy food scene. A bahn me has pate, pickled carrots, cilantro, and traditionally pickled radish which Heather puts all between a bun with a hotdog too!! This is were I go to get my gourmet dog fix. Closet place from here to NYC to get an awesome dog and who would of thought in Palenville. Catch her Fri, Sat, Sun at the triangle in Palenville, cant miss Heather.

Chickens will soon be an endangered species, because everyone is eating them all at Hill Country Chicken. So you might as well stop reading this review and get some before they're all gone.

But seriously i've crashed at this place a few times to stay nice and cold, in the AC, and drink Boylan's Fountain with free refills. This is the only place I have ever seen a Boylan's soda fountain and that is worth the trip alone. You would think a place with chicken in their name would be famous for their chicken. Well maybe to some they are but to others they are famous for their pie shakes. That's right folks, They will take any piece of pie you want and blend it into your milkshake. O. M. G!!!!!!!!! Amazing. They have like ten pies to choose from all delicious of course. Pie shakes are amazing. Chunks of flakey buttery crust, it's like a pie blizzard from DQ. How about apple cheddar pie milkshake? They got that. How about strawberry rhubarb chocolate milkshake? They got that too. The possibilities are endless. Hill Country is located right at the corner of Madison Sq Park well worth the trip. Of course unless you are going to Shake Shack and getting a concrete. But that's a different post.

Surf Bar-NY

-Hook Line and Dinner

There's sand on the floor?  Surfy, beachy memorabilia on the walls? An entire menu page of alcoholic fruity beverage treats? Am I in sweaty Williamsburg or a breezy tropical island? Surf Bar is like going on a vacation to an island with all your hipster friends all at once. Host of Hook Line and Dinner, Ben Sargent, once was the chef here and made his award winning chowders part of their menu. Although he doesnt work here anymore the chowders stayed. Thank Goodness!!!! I tried the monk fish chowda and it was awesome. Lots of chunky potatoes and peppers. Chunks of fish with a little curry going on. Really hardy and really hot, not really summer food but to die for in the below freezing winters in NY. I've never been to a place like this.Iit was really a chill spot to sit back and have some fruity drinks with your friends.
