Smoult's Deli on a Sunday for hotdogs is becoming a tradition.
A wet winter's night called for a trip Snags & Sons with my fab friends Jessica Shaver and Pia Poynton. Fresh from a Nøgne Ø tasting at the International Beer Shop the girls had plenty to share including a lovely bottle of Brooklyn Sorachi Ace. It tasted of distant balmy summer nights. The perfect match to my Toulouse Sausage crammed with creamy brie and caramelised onions. Sausage loving, beer drinking and plotting to take over the world ... perfect.
In a city devoid of a good sausage shop along comes Snags & Sons. Justin Bell of Jus Burgers fame saw the gap and crammed it with this deli-style gem in Leederville. Always one to champion local produce, Justin has ensured that the tastiest snags around Perth are finally getting a nudge and devotion. What's not to love about the humble hot dog when it's made to taste this good. We went early Sunday evening to find a little line creeping down the street. Taking our seats at the high bar style tables we studied the menu for far too long. The hot dogs were simple yet tasty and I am always happy to get change from ten bucks. A great place to pop in for a cheap and cheerful catch up or bite before a movie at Luna.

The red curry sausage was definitely the winner on the taste scale. My venison was a little on the dry side but was singing with a balance of flavours. Relish always works with game meat. I don't think I have found my favourite yet though so I will keep going back until I do.
