Can't afford a ticket to America and you want to try out a decent hotdog or missing some good old times canteen treats? The dip at Goodgod would be the ultimate stop for any hungry stomach. The atmosphere was lively and by the time the clock ticked around till 9 pm or so, all tables were pretty much packed out and people started to pack out the place.
|Smoked Kosher Hot Dog - $12|
The food came out relatively fast however that is exactly what I had expected because the food isn't that fancy nor complex. Their waitresses there were really nice, they made sure your water bottles were full at all times and the waitresses themselves were very well mannered.
|Kangaroo Burger - $12|
|Smoked pork sandwich with apple and cabbage slaw - $12|
The burgers and hotdogs were evidently pricey however I guess it is no different to any price of a burger for say Arthouse or Helm Bar. I had the hotdog myself and it was really tasty. I thought it would be oily however surprisingly, it didn't taste oily. The fresh salsa and grilled yellow peppers along with the mustard made it taste really fresh and balanced out the meatiness of the hotdog.
|Salsa Fries - $7|
|Steak Fries - $6|
The fries were a bit of a disappointment. There were a few well salted and crunchy ones, although most of them were soggy. The good thing about those chips and as I said about their burgers is that it isn't excessively oily. I imagined for oil to be dripping off the burger or chips but it barely did so extra bonus points right there.
So if you are looking for a place to hang and most bars or clubs are too full, give The Dip at Goodgod a go. My advice to you is to book in your own booth so you can hear yourself talk!
