For our last meal in New Orleans, we went to the other side of town for fancy hot dogs at Dat Dog. They caught our attention with duck sausage, crawfish sausage, alligator sausage and…are you ready for it? Turducken sausage! As soon as Rambo said turducken sausage, I was sold. Growing up in South Louisiana, I am a huge fan of turducken.
The bun was a little sweet (which I am a big fan of) but super light and fluffy. The skin of the sausage was perfectly crisp and you could hear the snap when you bit into it.
His had the same bun and the same crispiness to the sausage. I had two complaints about Rambo’s sausage. 1 – the sausage itself was a bit fatty/gristle-y. 2 – the étouffée was creole. I grew up on cajun étouffée and I am just not down with creole.
Super yum. Again, there’s the complaint that it is creole étouffée instead of cajun. Admittedly, I need to get over it because it’s New Orleans and they don’t make cajun food there. The fries were well seasoned and had the nice crispy outside-fluffy inside thing going on.
For sure get the turducken sausage. In my opinion, give the crawfish sausage and étouffée fries a miss. There were loads of other kinds of sausage to try and plenty of other french fry combinations. Plus, they apparently do weekly special dogs. If you’re in or around New Orleans, this place is defo worth a look (and taste).
