Hot dogs for Lunch - 1901 outlet

When the word hot dog pops out in any conversation in Malaysia, one would immediately equate it to 1901. And for those with a one dimensional thinking yes.... a sausage in a bun! 1901 is the local food franchise outlet that serves a variety of hot dogs and drinks. While we were window shopping (economy meleset so have to window shop) in Gurney Plaza during the weekend, we decided to patron one of their hot dog kiosk.

1901 offers a variety of hot dog selections ranging from Chicago beef, New York chicken, Coney Dog and more. In addition to hot dogs, they have now added variety to their menu with the inclusion of sandwiches and burgers. While the ala-carte selection offers more flexibility, we opted for the set menu since it's slightly cheaper. In uncertain times, a few savings here and there can go a long way.

A snapshot of the New York chicken. All that is missing is mustard! What's hot dog without mustard. This one is probably tailored to the local taste in Malaysia where everything must go with ketchup. I cannot imagine New Yorkers having their hot dogs without mustard.

The set menu comes with a drink - orange juice.

It has been a while since I have been to 1901. It took me by surprise that 1901 is now expanding it's menu to include burgers. It looks tempting but whether it's comparable to Burger King, I wont know till I try it. More reason to eat. :)

Aha..what's this? A happy camper. My wife's niece and she's giving the thumbs up.

While the hot dogs at 1901 isn't the same as what you would get in the States, it's well suited for local taste buds. It's reasonably priced too.
