6 Hoboken {Hot Dog Spots} To Cure Those Summer BBQ Cravings

One thing I learned when I first started apartment hunting in Hoboken was if you want a decently priced apartment, you have to give up the patio or backyard dream. That also meant giving up the grilling on the weekend dream (pouring one out for the mini grill sitting in my closet). Luckily though, we live in a location where there are a plethora of restaurants serving up our BBQ favorites this summer…especially hot dogs. Below is a list of just 6 spots to grab a hot dog when that grilling itch hits.


1. Biggie’s

You can find these delicious Grilled Hot Dogs under the Sandwich section of Biggie’s menu. Are hot dogs really a sandwich though? The debate continues…either way, order these dogs, and you’ll get two all-beef hot dogs served in your choice of hot dog buns or Italian bread, topped with sautéed peppers & onions. YUM!

 

2. Antique Bar & Bakery

antique bar and bakery

Antique Bar & Bakery’s current lunch menu boasts a Cappiello, or Italian Hot Dog. Order the Cappiello, and you’ll get a Cotton Farms beef dog with roasted long hot peppers and homemade mustard. But as we all know, Antique Bar & Bakery is known to change up their menu, so stop by and get this delicious dog before it’s gone!

 

3. Schnackenberg’s Luncheonette

Schnackenberg’s boasts a traditional Kobe beef hot dog on their lunch and dinner menus. You really can’t go wrong with a traditional dog, especially when it comes with homemade chips or fries. This is grilling at it’s finest.

 

4. Pilsener Haus

Nothing goes better with a good German beer than a sausage or hot dog. Pilsener Haus does it right with six different sausage and hot dog options on their Grill & Rotisserie menu. From P.H. Frankfurters to Jalapeño & Cheddar Frankfurters to a more traditional Smoked Pork Kielbasa, there are no bad choices. All sausages and hot dogs come with sauerkraut, and your choice of fresh bread or french fries. I always opt for the french fries, because duh.

 

5. Johnny Rockets

For when the hot dog craving hits, Johnny Rockets has your back, especially when those cravings hit after a night of bar-hopping down Washington Street. Pictured here is their famous Rocket Chili Dog. This Nathan’s Famous all-beef frank comes smothered in an all-meat chili, cheddar cheese, and chopped onions. But if this is too intense for you, you can always get the more traditional Rocket Dog. Either way, you’ll definitely get your BBQ kick at Johnny Rockets.

 

6. Hot Dog Carts

For those that are on-the-go, and don’t have time for a sit-down restaurant, or if you’re like my dad, and you think hot dogs from a street cart are just better, then this list is for you. Luckily, there are an abundance of hot dog carts scattered throughout Hoboken in various locations like…

  • Stevens Park hot dog stand
  • Pier A hot dog cart
  • Columbus Park hot dog stand
  • Hot dog stand on the corner of Observer/Newark

Now head on out, and cure that BBQ craving with one of these delicious hot dogs before summer comes to an end!

But her love for pizza and all things marketing & social media brought her to the big city, and eventually to Hoboken. Lindsay is on a constant search for the best slice of Buffalo Chicken pizza and the best Bacon, Egg & Cheese on a croissant…. Any suggestions?! When she is not eating or drinking, you can find her biking up the Hudson River Walkway or traveling the world. She also swears that death glare isn’t directed at you, she just has a case of RBF. She actually really likes people!

5 Questions: Nick Daryanani, Host of YouTube’s Off The Cuff With Nick D.

The host of YouTube’s new chat show fills us in on being a third culture kid, his favourite spots in HK and more

 

Fresh off the launch of his YouTube talk show, host Nick Daryanani sat down with Sassy to discuss the concept behind this great new program, Off The Cuff with Nick D., how it pays homage to Hong Kong and why we think it will be the 852’s answer to finding great television.

You’re new show ‘Off The Cuff With Nick D’ is being launched on YouTube today. Tell us about it!

Off The Cuff is not your typical chat show; it’s exciting for so many reasons. To begin with it’s shot on a moving tram, which is a logistical nightmare for us, but overall a having a moving set is one of the coolest things ever! It’s like the entirety of the city is your audience. We always get really funny reactions from passersby – people take photos, and, once, all the passengers of an entire public tram all stood up and yelled “WHOAAAAA!” and waved insanely. It was hilarious!

We chat to celebrities who are contributing or working in Asia, it can be anyone who’s currently doing great work here. I think Asia doesn’t get enough of the spotlight and people here deserve to take centre stage. So much amazing stuff takes place in Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangkok, Mumbai, Kuala Lumpur and all over but it’s not internationally widespread enough. There are famous and successful people in every country, and my job is to bring [these] people together and tell their stories, all with a bit of outrageous fun on the side.

Now, tell us about you. Who are you, how long have you lived in Hong Kong, and what gave you the idea for the show?

I was born in Hong Kong and grew up here, went to King George V School, then moved away to England for University. Definitely a third culture kid, sometimes still confused as to where I truly belong. When asked who I am, I usually respond with the fact that I am a dreamer. It’s all incredibly cheesy but I truly believe life has no limits, you get what you make of it. My career has taught me this time and time again. By profession I am a producer, presenter and actor, and I currently run 24 Frames, an avant-garde production house based in Hong Kong.

The idea for this show actually came from an inspirational conversation with my first guest, Debbie Wong. We met up for a coffee after which I decided that I wanted to make this show and wanted her to be my first guest. Upon making this decision I rang Bradley (director of Off the Cuff, business partner at 24 Frames, and best bud) who then convinced me that if we were going to do it, it had to be done on a moving tram! I mean how else would we make a bold statement?!

We love picking people’s brains – got any good finds you’d like to share with us? 

Relaxation is a term that unfortunately doesn’t exist in my dictionary, I am a complete and utter workaholic, I am always either travelling or on a shoot. When I do get the odd chance to relax I’d say my favourite bar in town has to be Foxglove, it’s the kind of place Frank Sinatra would have frequented if he was alive and in Hong Kong. I am also a big fan of La Paloma, such a relaxed atmosphere with the best paella I’ve had outside of Spain. Riki, the manager, is an absolute legend and a close friend, so I get to sample a lot of interesting off-menu dishes.

I hear you’re a foodie and like to cook. Where are your favourite places to eat in Hong Kong and why? And where do you like to shop for food?

I am a massive foodie and without a shadow of a doubt one of Hong Kong’s best home cooks, if Master Chef ever comes to town, I’ll be more than happy to prove this statement!

I love shopping at Oliver’s and City Super. For me, food shopping before I cook is a religious ritual. I have to make sure I am getting the best ingredients available to mankind!

There are so many restaurants to pick from, so I am only going to name my top three places. In no particular order I’d say: Mott 32, for incredible dim sum and Peking duck – enough said! Big, big fan of Chef Pino Lavarra and Tosca. I have a real soft spot for Italian food and he just does it right. Last is Under Bridge Spicy Crab, some of the best crab I’ve ever had, it’s so simple but extraordinary all at the same time.

I also love dumplings. Having grown up in Hong Kong, Chinese food has always been what I consider ‘home food.’ I can eat dumplings all night and day! My favourite little secret place to get the best dumplings is in the cooked food centre in Sheung Wan.  Definitely not the most glamorous address, but if you are looking for some of the best dumplings in town they’ve got you sorted. I don’t actually know the english name of the place but  the Chinese name is – 老北方餃子館 (Old North Dumpling House).

What’s your idea of a great date in Hong Kong (either night or day)?

I think Hong Kong is one of the most versatile cities in the world – the options are endless! You can do [a simple] dinner and a movie, or a 9-course Michelin star dinner and a movie in a private cinema.

I like things that are slightly unconventional. My favourite date idea would be to take a private boat from Sai Kung Ferry pier to Tai Long Wan and hike up to the rock pools. After jumping off the waterfalls with this mystery lady, I’d love to head back into the town and enjoy a seafood feast with an exquisite bottle of wine.

Moving Within Hong Kong: Who to Use and How to Do It

Moving on up!

 

Wherever you are, moving is stressful. Finding a new place can be tough – and that’s only half the battle – you’ve now got to think about the move itself!

Don’t fret, as we’re helping you out; from choosing your moving company and packing, to dealing with the admin and what to do at the other end, we have you covered. So, although it’s not the most fun way to spend a weekend, moving doesn’t have to be all that bad, and definitely shouldn’t take away the excitement from starting out somewhere new…

Tip & Tricks:

Moving Companies in Hong Kong

Know your measurements

Regardless of whether you’re taking your old furniture or buying new items, it’s important to be sure that everything fits where you want it to. It’s useful to have a tape measure on hand during viewings so you can get an idea of available for those large items such as beds, sofas and wardrobes. It’ll save you from having your sofa placed at an awkward angle or stuck halfway up a walk-up.

Do the admin

Make sure to inform the appropriate authorities and services of your change of address when moving. You will need to alert your bank, along with any utility services, government agencies etc. of your move. The HK government offers a simple change of address service for these purposes, which allows you to inform different government agencies all at once, saving you a lot of time. You can also find more information on this here.

DIY and save

Moving companies offer a range of services; from providing boxes, dismantling and assembling furniture, to packing and helping with the actual move. If you don’t have a huge amount to shift, you can keep costs down by packing everything yourself and just only using a company to help with the actual move. Buy your own moving boxes from the post office (and from most removal companies), or try asking around at local supermarkets/shops, as some may be able to pass these on.

Throw, donate and sell

Do you really need to take everything? Moving is the perfect excuse to clear out and get rid of unused and unwanted items that we keep “just in case.” Throw things away, donate or sell, and try not to take absolutely everything with you. An easy way to get rid of unwanted furniture is to list it on sites like AsiaExpat, or alternatively Boxful is an easy storage solution for items you may not need right now, but don’t want to completely get rid of.

Label, label, label

It sounds obvious, but it will make a huge difference when it comes to unpacking. Whether it’s yourself or a company that’s packing, make sure that everything is labelled correctly. You don’t want to get to your new flat and have to open a dozen boxes before being able to locate your toothbrush, or the kettle.

Moving Companies in Hong Kong

Stay organised

If you’re planning on moving in stages, it’s important to have all of your day-to-day must haves with you. Whether staying in your old place for an extra night or going ahead to the new apartment without all your furniture – having a change of clothes, bedding, toiletries and cleaning products with you will come in handy!

Keep the important things safe

Even if you’re not doing the bulk of the moving yourself, there may be certain items you want to keep with you. If you have any particularly valuable, fragile or important items, we suggest you keep these separate and move them yourself (just to ensure accidents don’t happen!) On this note, keep all important documents safe when moving. Pack your ID cards, passports, medical documents etc. with you, so you know where they are. You’re not going to want the extra hassle of having to replace these!

Start fresh

Lastly… don’t have a heavy night out before moving day. No one wants to deal with the stress of moving, on top of a heavy head and the hangover munchies. Don’t say we didn’t warn you…

Pucker Up: Which Hoboken {Citrus Cocktail} Will You Love?

Citrus: the ingredient you need in your kitchen and your bar at any given time–and there’s no better season to get the refreshing benefits than when we are living under a blanket of sticky summer heat. Which of the four most popular citrus fruits will you fill your cocktail with in Hoboken?

 

Lime

hotelvictor

Hotel Victor totally revamped their look, which came complete with an upgrade to their food and drink menus. You can now sip on their Cucumber Limeade (Effen Cucumber vodka, fresh lime juice, and club soda, served on the rocks) among the bright, tropical vibe. It’s light and tart without being syrupy or too sweet.

 

Lemon

themadison

Lemonade is the classic summer drink–and The Madison’s Misunderstood Lemonade (Misunderstood Ginger Spiced Whiskey, cucumber, homemade lemonade) is better than any cup you ever bought off the neighbor kid’s dinky homemade stand for 25-cents. The whiskey gives the kick, and the cucumber and lemon follow to soothe.

 

Grapefruit

wickedwolf

Grapefruit seems to be having a moment with alcohol–everyone is ordering a splash of it with just about any liquor. Gather your trendiest pals around Wicked Wolf’s Paloma (Don Julio tequila, Owen’s Grapefruit, lime juice) an extra-large mule-style cocktail meant to be shared between 2 to 4 people. Do not make the mistake of assuming this XL drink is weak–the tequila rings through loud and clear.

 

Orange

hotelvictor

While the jalapeño in Hotel Victor’s Jalapeno Blood Orange Margarita (Casamigos silver, Cointreau, Blood Orange juice, lime, jalepeno, 1/2 salt rim garnish) is the star of the show, the blood orange makes for one heck of a supporting role. This spicy drink has a mellow sweetness that doesn’t overpower.

Oh, and, she’s not yelling at you–that’s just her natural volume.

When she’s not throwing elbows to get a seat on the PATH first (but failing 9 out of 10 times), Rachel can be found at brunch with a pitcher of mimosas in front of her. Originally from Upstate New York, Rachel moved to Hoboken a little over a year ago when she started working for an ad agency in Manhattan. Being still somewhat new to the area, Rachel makes it her goal to try every restaurant and bar at least once. In her free time, when Scandal isn’t being binged watched, Rachel is typically finding joy in things out of her budget, speaking fluently in sarcasm, and crawling her way down Washington St. because yesterday was leg day.
