I've driven past Matt's Chili Dogs a million times. ten thirty this a.m. today while sitting in the yard waiting for my truck to get fixed I started to feel a grumbling in my stumach. For some reason my mind flashed on Matt's Chili Dogs sign and I headed out to my little pickup where it's parked at the Selland yard.
Best breakfast ever!!! A Chicago style dog from Matt's Chili Dogs. At the corner of Marginal and south 4th near Georgetown. However my breakfast adventure is not yet over...
as I finish my dog, across the street, a sign...with what appeared to be a new type of Burger surounded by words that spell out "Katsu Burger". I jump into my chevy S 10 pickup and roar across the street to park with a screech. Yes!!! a sign in the window says OPEN in flashing neon. What the heck I'm allowed to eat whatever I want with my Trucker Diet so who am I to question the rules.
The daily special was called a Tamago Kick. The nice girl behind the counter told me "We don't make these burgers every day the Tamago Kick is a specialty burger." This was destiny. The Tamago Kick came with hamburger an egg and several more ingredients that I couldn't pronounce and sounded delicious. Then I remembered that I'm s'posed to be a "Health Trucker." Do You have that burger in vegetarian by any chance?" I asked hoping they hadn't noticed me standing across the street at Matt's stuffing hot dog into my face. "Yes, we have tempurah that is marinated for several hours and then deep fried that you can substitute for the beef." "O.k. I'll have one of those." Says I, feeling smug that I'm going to eat two breakfastes and get away with it.
The Tamago Kick from Katsu Burger was quite delicious and I washed it down with a Canada Dry Green Tea Ginger Ale.
Been trucking since 96. My main interest is having a good healthy life.
