Fine Food Company launches new Coffee Dog kiosk

Fine Food Company launches new Coffee Dog kiosk

A new hot dog brand from the Fine Food Company is to open its first kiosk on the newly-refurbished Southern Square in London's King's Cross.

Coffee Dogs will open on 31 March, and serve hot dogs, hamburgers, garlic butter fries, donuts and frozen custard desserts inspired by managing director Robert Tame's road trips in the USA.

It will also serve its own blend of coffee beans, called the Mutz Nutz, developed by coffee blender Mike Riley. New East End donut shop the Dum Dum Donetterie will also help provide donuts and cronuts.

Head chef Austin Latimer has aimed to develop the hot dogs according to key factors including taste, snap, smoke, succulence, spice, saltiness, skin, and colour, having reportedly tasted over 500 hot dogs in search of his preferred flavour.

Managing director Tame explained: "Coffee Dogs is inspired by the hot dog stands we visited on a road trip to Chicago last year. I'm really proud to have brought the best of the American Mid-West to London's King Cross."

Foodservice firm the Fine Food Company also manages Fineburger Co at St Pancras International station and exhibition hall ExCel London, as well as providing the catering for events such as the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, the Kia Oval stadium and summer music event V Festival.

It also operated all the food and drink venues at six London Olympics venues in 2012.
