Ray Garcia Remixes the Hot Dog at FIG

FIG chef Ray Garcia, creator of that sublime torta de lengua in our sandwich slide show, has another fast comfort remix in store with his own hot dog cart, standing poolside at The Fairmont on weekends. Naturally, these aren’t your normal dogs, unless you’re boring and really want an all-beef “simple dog” when you could opt for his carnitas instead. More mind-blowing is his FIG Dog, with a beef weiner covered in bacon-habanero marmalade, Fritos, and comte fondue on a sesame seed bun. There’s also a Chicago dog that sports “nuclear” relish, a Brat Dog on a pretzel bun, and the L.A. Dog, covered with “fuerte avocado” and mango pico de gallo. You can make your own too, Counter-style, dipping into Fig’s supply of traditional toppings and more localized options like creamed rajas, piquillo pepper ketchup, and chorizo de Bilbao. And while we’ll skip the option to have anything served on a three-dollar Frisbee, sides like watermelon and torn basil salad and house-made sea salt chips sound like proper summer snacks. And yes, there’s even a loco Taco Dog, too. See FIG’s complete Hot Dog Cart menu below.
