    17 London Hot Dogs That Will Sexually Awaken You

    All satisfying no matter the size.

    1. A Crown Chippy at Bubbledogs.

    2. The Big Dog at Big Apple Hot Dogs.

    Big Apple

    If you're ever going through Kings Cross station, you need to get off and go try one of these hot dogs. A diddy little stall that's only open for like, I think two to three hours each day at lunchtime, their dogs are seriously good. I first went with a friend while we were waiting for a train, and put off by the price (they're £7 and not huge hot dogs) didn't get one – but my friend did. I had a bite of theirs and had to go back to buy one for myself, it was that good.

    First timers, order the signature Big Dog with all the trimmings. It's incredible.

    Location: Euston

    Price: £7

    3. A Camel Toe at Pop Dogs

    4. A Yankee at Dirty Bones

    Dirty Bones

    Dirty Bones do dirty food really, really well. In particular, their Mac Daddy burger will make you feel like you're experiencing nirvana in your mouth, as will the Yankee hot dog. Available in pork, beek or veggie, it's topped with sauerkraut, spring onion, mustard and smoked tomato ketchup and is a flavour sensation.

    Location: Carnaby and Shoreditch

    Price: £7.50

    5. A Currywurst at Herman Ze German

    Herman Ze German

    Easily some of the best 'dogs in London. If you're looking for a bargain, I reckon the best value hot dogs are to be found at Herman Ze German, with their wurst in a roll going for £4.95. If you're a little more flush though, the Currywurst (fries and sliced hot dog in delicious sauce) is amazing.

    FYI, if meat isn't your thing, they also have great veggie dogs on the menu here.

    Location: Charing Cross, Fitzrovia and Soho

    Price: Wurst in a roll is £4.95, Currywurst is £7.50

    6. A Shack-Cago Dog at Shake Shack.

    7. A Chilli Dog at Hawksmoor Spitalfields.

    Hawksmoor

    Hawksmoor's regular menu is all great, but if you're heading to their Spitalfields branch, go to the bar downstairs and order their Chilli Dog, a hidden treat of a hot dog. Topped with melty cheese and chilli beef, it's one of the best drinking buddies in the city.

    Location: Spitalfields

    Price: £10

    8. A Texas Style Dog at BurgerFi.

    9. A Diner Dog at The Diner.

    The Diner

    I've been going to The Diner for years, and they rarely disappoint. If you want a really good junk food fix, you can't go far wrong here. The Diner Dog is also great, topped with a generous amount of swiss cheese (my favourite bedmate), bacon, sour cream and pickles (my other favourite bedmates).

    Locations: all over London

    Price: from £5.95

    10. A special at Joe's Southern Table and Bar.

    11. A The Littlest Hobo at Meat Mission.

    Meat Mission

    If you want to have a hot dog that also makes you feel good about yourself (in the "i'm a good person" way, not in the "yesss, I just ate three hot dogs in one sitting, new record" way), go try Meat Mission's new hot dog. They've launched a 'dog covered in melted beer cheese sauce and crispy onions, and are donating £1 of ever hot dog sold to canine charities. So, really, you need to go eat like, at least three of these. Think of the puppies. Do it for them.

    Location: Hoxton

    Price: £8.50

    12. A Philly Cheese Dog at Electric Diner.

    13. A Hot Dog at All Star Lanes.

    All Star Lanes

    All Star Lanes in Brick Lane have just had a big 'ole refurb job, and are looking sexy as fuck. As are their hot dogs, which come dripping in beans and cheese, just like god intended. Order with a side of sweet potato fries and an evening of whole bowling fun.

    Location: Brick Lane

    Price: £5.50

    14. A Dog Deluxe at Galvin Hop.

    15. A Beef Richard at Engine Hot Dogs

    Engine Hot Dogs

    Street food hot dogs that are worth tracking down – seriously, you need to get your mouth around these handmade, double smoked sausages pronto. If you're feeling overwhelmed by choice, then you can't go wrong with the signature, New York-style Beef Richard. But, if you want something a little different, the Yoshi dog with takoyaki sauce, crispy seaweed and wasabi mayo is a thing of beauty.

    16. A Chilli Dog at Meat Liquor.

    Meat Liquor

    Don't be put off by the size of this one, it looks intimidating, but the trick is to just go to town on it and not care what you look like in the process. Be careful though. A big dog with big flavours, you may find yourself not able to go back to regular hot dogs after you're done.

    Location: Bond Street and Angel

    Price: £9

    17. A Danish Dog at Scandinavian Kitchen.
