Restaurants in Newark

Sandwich shops in and around Newark, New Jersey, specialize in the cornucopic frankfurter known as an Italian hot dog. It is built in a half-loaf of chewy-crusted Italian bread that gets squeezed open like a giant pita. Into it goes an all-beef hot dog or preferably two, then a heap of onions and peppers that have been sautéed until limp, and a handful of crisp-fried potato chunks. Options include mustard, marinara sauce, fire-hot onion relish, even ketchup. While ketchup is anathema on hot dogs to many people, the fried potatoes that are an essential element of the sandwich do provide some justification for ketchup or tomato-based sauce.
