Blue Monday #44: Vendor on Bicentennial Mall 10.3.08


"Get 'Em While They're Hot!"
Raleigh, NC - October 2008 (Click to embiggen)


One sign that Raleigh is working on becoming the urban center it wants to be is the preponderance of lunch carts plying the city core. Once the exclusive province of Sobretto's, now a few independents are staking their claims to various corners of the district. Can chai stalls be far behind?Violence Unsilenced

I believe that you can tell a lot about a city by it's street food! You couldn't pay me enough to live in NY again (I'm originally from Brooklyn), but whenever I do go back, my trip is not complete until I can eat a knish on the street.

All American hot dogs. Do they taste any better than all beef hot dogs?

Street vendors selling hot dogs are as American as Mom and apple pie. Your photo is terrific.

Even though they may clog the sidewalks, they do provide a service--a good tasting lunch for a reasonable price. Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday.

The only carts I have near me are in front of Home Depot. Their hotdogs sure do hit the spot!

makes me think of New York City. My grandfather worked in the twin towers and when we'd visit him he always wanted to get a hotdog from the street vendors - or a hot pretzel. It was a big deal because he was a diabetic with a bad heart and so we'd sneak the hotdog so grandma wouldn't know!!!
