Heart Attack in a Bun

While we still don't know whose responsible for The Teddy Bear Murder, our flickr detectives have their cameras on a new local quandary: which street vendors have the best bacon wrapped hot dog? LAist seems to always come upon the dog vendor right in front of a bar after we've drank ourselves into oblivion. The greasy smell of onions and bacon fat tempts us every time but, we must confess, we've been too scared to try one.

What do we know of the pork powerhouse? Is it a true So. Cal. delicacy or have you seen it elsewhere? And, if you are one of the brave souls to try one of these monstrosities, where did you, how did you, and what did it taste like?

Something about this beast in a bun just seems so wrong to us. We have friends that won't eat chicken and eggs together and while we will happily do that, eating pig wrapped in fried pig just seems like the end of civilized dining.

We also love the movie Babe and its sequel more than the average person so maybe we're just weird.
