Slug & Lettuce marks World Cup with hot dogs

Slug and Lettuce hot dog

A special menu of hot dogs is to be introduced at Slug & Lettuce bars inspired by six football teams taking part in the World Cup.

The menu will run in all the bars across the UK from the kick-off of the first group match on June 12 until the final on July 13.

Support the hosting team with the hot Brazilian-inspired Salsa Dog, which layers tomato and chilli salsa and chopped coriander, garnished with a wedge of lime.

Or get behind the English boys with the Bull Dog, which offers a traditional flavour of grated cheese and red onion.

The Italian Dog Father combines the authentic tastes of tomato marinara sauce with thick slices of mozzarella and rocket pesto.

The New Yorkie pairs the hot dog with pulled pork, spicy Tabasco sauce, French yellow mustard and barbecue sauce.

The Down-Under Dog turns up the heat with a touch of sweet chilli sauce and chunky king prawns.

The Deutsch Hound is a German-inspired dog offering a fresh yellow mustard coating with a large juicy gherkin.

Simon Blunt, food development manager at Slug & Lettuce, said: “Customers can feast their eyes on the game with a World Cup hot dog firmly in one hand a cold beer in the other – the on-trend hand-held food is ideal for the World Cup season.

“The hot dogs add an authentic touch and a lot of fun. We are encouraging customers to pick their favourite hot dog: will your favourite hot dog make it all the way to the final or will they get the red card?”
