After months of debate and taste-testing, fans voted on a signature hot dog to be served at Phillies games at Citizens Bank Park this season.
I describe the process in Thursday's Food section, how Aramark's chefs came up with three varieties:
- South Philly Hot Dog: An all-beef dog, topped with broccoli rabe, spicy roasted peppers and sharp provolone on a crusty Italian roll
- Olde Philadelphia Hot Dog: An all-beef dog, topped with Amish pepper hash, dill pickle and yellow mustard on a poppyseed roll
- Citizens Bank Park Summer Hot Dog: An all-beef dog, topped with cucumbers, pickled onion salsa and ancho pepper sauce on a pretzel roll.
After 6,455 votes at the ballpark and online:
The South Philly captured 46 percent of the vote, compared with 32 percent for the Summer Hot Dog and 22 percent for the Olde Philadelphia.
It'll cost you $5.75 to play ball.
