We’re always cautious when it comes to consuming hot dogs. We’ve had our fair share of sausages that have been poor in quality and taste and with that in mind we were curious to see what Paris had to offer on this front. When we found out about a halal restaurant in Paris serving all things hot dog, we knew we had to check it out. Located in Bastille, 5th Avenue House of Hot Dog serves a range of hot dogs, bagels and salads. Starting at €5.50 for a classic with the most expensive at €6.50, this was a cheap eat we couldn’t resist. The decor of the restaurant is pretty simple and American inspired, as is to be expected given its name. The shop is takeaway style with just a few seats (around ten covers).
We chose the Classic Hot Dog which was a beef sausage with fried onions, ketchup and American mustard. The quality of the sausage was pretty good with the toasted bread adding a nice crunch to the bite. The bread was fresh (I can’t imagine the French settling for anything less!) and you have the option to choose from other breads too. The menu includes a make your own option for €6.50 where the customer can choose a bread, type of sausage, three ingredients and a sauce. Vegan options are also available. We also ordered Frites Maison (chips) priced at €3. These were hand-cut and just perfect when dipped in to some mustard!
Overall, 5th Avenue House of Hot Dog is a great halal cheap eat in Paris. The service is friendly and quick with seating available indoors as well as takeaway options. We’re yet to find a halal restaurant in London with hot dogs at the core of their menu so if you know of any, please tweet us!
