The New York Sharks finished the season with a 7-1 record and are now heading to Boston to play the Militia (8-0) for the North Atlantic division title this saturday. The winner will go on to the Eastern Conference Championship and then to the IWFL Championship game. I have been way behind on updating my road game eats, so I figure that I should at least recount the team’s last trip to Boston on May 15th. Of course that wasn’t a good trip as the Sharks suffered their only loss of the regular season.
The Sharks game was in the evening so I left New York just before lunch. I planned to get lunch somewhere north of the city, something like a hot dog. Just NE of NYC are so many hot dog joints to choose from. There is Walter’s, Super Duper Weenie, Swanky Franks, Rawleys, Danny’s Drive-in, etc. I had been to many of those places so I decided to go to two new places that were written up on Road Food. I ended up in Port Chester, New York and went to Texas Chili and Pat’s Hubba Hubba. Both places are noted for their chili dog and are only 1 block apart. I found a good parking spot right near Texas Chili and went inside to order one hot dog. Texas Chili was a small place with some tables up front and a small counter in the back near the grill. Behind the counter the wall is covered with dollar bills that customers gave to the restaurant for good luck. I then walked over to Pat’s Hubba Hubba to get my other hot dog. Hubba Hubba was small too but much more narrower. They also had a wall of dollar bills but this one was on the wall across from the grill.
I went back to my car to eat. Both hot dogs were not very large and were split down the middle and covered with a bean-less meat chili. They were both spicy with some red pepper flakes mixed into the chili. Overall they were OK, they tasted similar to the chili dogs you get in upstate New York, like Tony’s Texas Hots but not better. The area they are located in seems to be an hispanic neighborhood and there were a lot of rotisserie chicken places that looked a lot more interesting. The Texas Chili hot dog is on the left or is it the one on the right? They both look pretty much the same and they tasted about the same to me as well. The Hubba Hubba one is on the right.
I didn’t eat as much as I normally would or should for that matter, but I was also planning to have my big meal in Rhode Island. I planned to meet Fred, the league’s photographer in Warwick, Rhode Island for Iggy’s Doughboys. Iggy’s is located right near the water and you can eat on tables outside overlooking Narragnsett Bay. I ordered fish and chips, which comes with cole slaw and clam chowder and costs $10. I also got a free order of their famous doughboys by using a coupon they email to you for signing up on their website. The fish was a nice size and quite tasty. It is not as good as Ye Olde English Fish & Chips in Woonsocket, RI but for the view and price this is a place to go to. And there are quite a few people that think so too as the line to order can be very long. It couldn’t just be the location either as thre are a few other restaurants next to Iggy’s and they are empty. As for the doughboy, they are a piece of fried dough dusted with sugar. They are kind of thick and reminded me more of a zeppole than a beignet. They are good but with all the fried food I was eating I just had one, ,29,504448.006,1,63187,188.8.131.52
