Address: 940 Bloor St. W, Toronto, ON
When I visited: September 24, 2014
I am a fan of Fancy Frank’s with their juicy gourmet dogs and fancy toppings (read about my last visit). The decor is very similar to their College St. location with an old-school feel and a wicked mural on the wall.
At the media event at the Bloor St. and Ossington Ave. location, I was able to sample of some of their new menu items. So what’s new at Fancy Franks ?
Frankie goes to Buffalo-It was their take on Buffalo wings with celery, carrots and blue cheese dressing. The best part of the dog was the crispy batter on the dog. I would reorder this and add in additional toppings. The carrots and celery would be better to eat on their own as a side.
Franky Y Huevos-This was an appetizing huevo ranchero style dog with friend eggs and chorizo.
Frankie Wanna Meatball-This was spaghetti and meatballs on a hot dog. I did not get to sample this one but I can imagine it would be a hearty one.
Now onto the poutine….
The Porker poutine had pulled work, gravy, cheese curds and topped with an egg.
The Fancy Schmancy poutine had similar toppings as the porker poutine but with beef brisket and topped with green onions.
I enjoyed them both! The egg was a standout as the oozing egg added on the rich dish and creamy texture. What a great addition!
My favourite hot dog still goes to the Francophone available on their menu with smoked Gruyere cheese, horseradish cheddar, squeaky curds and a honey Dijon mayo. I did enjoy the new additions and love that Fancy Franks is innovative and adding new items on the menu.
The poutines were delicious with tender meat, cheese and egg. With Fancy Frank’s variety of toppings, you can always make the poutine or dogs your own.
