Re: Hot Dog or Schublig ( food fight ?? )

Isn't a Schüblig much bigger and meatier?
Bit of an unfair match if you ask me........!

Re: Hot Dog or Schublig ( food fight ?? )

As explanation for this thread.. Mrs. and I were at IKEA saturday ( she obviously felt we didn't have enuf tat around the house !! ) and so lunch when we finally got out was a couple of hot dogs...

funny tho.. all the American looking types were inside lining up for hot dogs.



while the Swiss looking types were outside lining up for Schublig.

Re: Hot Dog or Schublig ( food fight ?? )

I can only eat a hotdog after midnight in Copenhagen after Ive been on the sherbert. i can always manage a Schublig and mustard, however the absolute champion in its class is of course a Clonakilty mmmmmmmm

Hot dogs from the Cafe @ Bellevue are great, crusty 1/2 baguettes with vienna's and hot sauce.

Re: Hot Dog or Schublig ( food fight ?? )

I have a Swiss friend who can eat an endless amount of fondue. I've seen the skinny little guy put away well over 700 grams of it. I, being an American, seem to have the same capacity for hot dogs. I could probably empty my wallet at the Ikea counter and still have room for more.

I love schublig though too, but 2's enough there. As to which is better? Too different. Like comparing Schlitz Malt Liquor to Chimay. Each has it's place, each has it's endearing qualities.

Re: Hot Dog or Schublig ( food fight ?? )

Hot-dogs have their place, i.e. on a bun, buried beneath a pile of chili!

(or in Oslo on May 17)

But schubligs are better naked.

Takes me back too. I used to use my brother's ID to buy it, always at my favorite liquor store-slash-chicken shack in the hood. The old lady perched behind the high counter, first time she saw that ID,"Hm. Hair color different but I cain't tell you people apart." (this post could cross link to soo many interesting threads here ). Dorky white boy drinking 40's of Schlitz was instant street cred .

Re: Hot Dog or Schublig ( food fight ?? )

Neither. Good ol yank hotdog, you mean those tiny frozen ones? I say Schublig. If it's the nice big one I always had in Chicago and NYC, then that. But it is mainly the trimming I miss.

But despite how wonderful this place if in terms of cheese, the paradise of cheese, it has a lot to desire in meat dept. I mean proper Wurst dept. I miss our 200 kinds of different klobasas.

Back in the day (mid '70s, when the age was 18 and I was 16), we used driver's licenses as ID, and they were hand written and had no picture!

Re: Hot Dog or Schublig ( food fight ?? )

I lucked out.. the drinking age was lowered to 18 two months after I turned 18..
my then 21 yr. old brother was pissed we could both legally drink at the same time.


p.s... how did this turn to a beer thread when I started talking about hot dogs ?

Ok, will make an effort. I know the brewer/owner of Trois Dames in Ste-Croix, and was invited once for a tasting of about a dozen new brews. All official with papers to fill out and spittoons and such.

He is Swiss German, but been in Vaud long enough that he has no accent. But- when it comes to Schublig, he goes back to his roots. For the tasting he special ordered from a butcher in Bern something like 100 of the things, for 10 beer tasters. As the spittoons were left empty over the course of the evening I don't remember how many were eaten, but they got hit hard. Delicious.

Back on track?
