The ORIGINAL Coney Island Hot Dog

.... is really old and probably past its 'pull date' :-)

past its pull date

Sort of like that one hot dog rotating on the warmer at the corner gas station. It looks like it has been there since they built the place and no one will buy it.

A version of the Coney has been devoured in downtown Detroit for many decades. The essential topping is a scoop of chili con carne, making it a test to eat without slopping. Nobody cares. Let it spill on the side order of chili cheese fries. The brave of stomach will load up with mustard and onions.

In the heart of the Motor City, the Lafayette and the American restaurants are competitive neighbors and open all the time, 24/7 (although that may not be true in the current situation).

This chili treat is also served in Montreal, and called Le Detroit.

For the sake of clarity , albeit a bit of trivia , the name of the island derives from the wild rabbits , or " Coneys " , who used to inhabit the place . A similarly named island , is in the heart of St. Petersburg , Russia - Zayachy Ostrov , or Hare Island . The fortress of Peter and Paul , and the resting place of the Czars are on the island -,30.3166472,3a,75y/data=!3m8!1e2!3m6!1sAF1QipNFQDnhIBuCOYUCwAgO-u02Ttg7jpHWdg0CRBy_!2e10!3e12!!7i1800!8i1200!4m13!1m7!3m6!1s0x4696378cc74a65ed:0x6dc7673fab848eff!2sSt+Petersburg,+Russia!3b1!8m2!3d59.9310584!4d30.3609096!3m4!1s0x46963114d149da85:0x7cd040bdf491dcb!8m2!3d59.9497624!4d30.3166471

Coney is perhaps for Conejo, which is rabbit in Spanish?
