Russian dogs at Cyber Dogs

20130905-171557.jpg
I love Cyber Dogs, and guess what: it’s Russian-owned! They also serve a number of Slavic-inspired dogs: perfect for Vegtastic!’s Vegan MoFo theme.

I had the pleasure of being served by bubbly owner Tania Harrison on my most recent visit — it’s near (but not super near) my work, so I make the trek on days I want a little walk or a big meal.

Tania wished me a happy Jewish New Year while preparing my Spudnik (a vegan dog topped with potatoes and mushrooms), and let me know that “All our hot dogs are kosher — they are made from soybeans killed humanely.”

While Dr. Strangelove played on the TV (with the soundtrack to TransAmerica), Tanya gave me a little USSR history lesson: regular Russians never felt any antagonism towards Americans during the Cold War. It was all a political thing.

Also, a popular joke of the time: in case of nuclear attack, put a white sheet over your head and run to the cemetery.

She proudly showed me my dog before wrapping it in tin foil (because it never is as pretty when you eat it at your desk) and was joking with a couple from the Netherlands on my way out.

    I’ve not yet had the pleasure of making her aquaintance! Thomas did once while I was out of town, but when I went, it was some imposter ;)

    I loved Cyber Dogs, I went there a couple of times for lunch during the conference seeing as it is literally right at the Convention Center. All future conferences should beheld there so that I can go to Cyber Dogs for lunch!
    *sigh* I need to come back soon.
