Short Leash Sit . . . Stay: A Shrine to Sausages in Downtown Phoenix
Brad and Kat Moore's gourmet hot dogs come wrapped in warm naan "buns."
Short Leash Sit . . . Stay is Brad and Kat Moore's urban shrine to sausages, a collection of frankfurters steamed, baked, and fried; decorated with things like roasted red peppers, mango chutney, and Cracker Jack; and wrapped most of the time in a warm naan "bun."
The husband-and-wife team, who launched Short Leash, their successful hot dog food truck,in 2010, opened their permanent dog house this summer. And it's here that you'll find the dynamic duo of dogs and grog.
Here's an excerpt from this week's review:
For the uninitiated, customizing your Short Leash dog means first picking a wiener -- perhaps an all-beef, spicy-hot beer frank, bratwurst, or well-seasoned chicken -- before choosing from seven signature creations or 30 toppings you can pile on at will. There is the very good Moki, a Sonoran-inspired dog of roasted green chiles, sautéed onions, tomatoes, pinto beans, cheddar, and mayonnaise; the fiery Devil Dog lit up with green chiles, sriracha, and jalapeños; and (not for the faint of heart) the Bear. On this dog, slathered in peanut butter and barbecue sauce and topped with smoked Gouda, bacon, and a sprinkling of Cracker Jack, the salt and fat curb the sweet stuff, making for a gut-busting monstrosity that tastes better than it sounds.
