From BlogTO:

Pylsur (Icelandic hotdogs) in Toronto for one night only!
Mjölk Pylsur

Mjölk is recreating Reykjavik's "Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur" in front of their shop. Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur means "The best hotdog in town" and after 60 years in business they have become arguably the best hot dog stand in the world.

Mjölk will be cooking the hot dogs just like at Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur, steam cooking them in beer, and importing all of the authentic toppings including a special Icelandic mustard, remoulade mayonnaise, ketchup and frizzled onions directly from Iceland.

When you come by make sure you ask for one with the works or "eina með öllu."

Hot dogs will be served from 7 p.m. until they are all gone! Make sure you stop by early to get a taste of Iceland.
